The fan-favorite Shang-Chi artist was born 70 years ago…
Shang-Chi in the Bronze Age was blessed with a run of artists perfectly suited to the Master of Kung Fu. The best known are probably Paul Gulacy and Mike Zeck. But Gene Day — who was born Aug. 13, 1951, and died at the excruciatingly young age of 31 in 1982 — is also fondly remembered by the Shangnoscenti.
Paired with writer Doug Moench, Day kept alive the grindhouse cinema feel of the series into the ’80s, having taken over pencils from Zeck. So dig these 13 COVERS — especially with Shang-Chi having joined the massive Marvel pop-culture machine with the MCU film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. (It premieres Aug. 16, followed by a wide release Sept. 3.)
