Comics Techniques and Tricks: Doug Moench and Paul Gulacy

Welcome to another edition of Comics Techniques and Tricks, in which we showcase techniques that only comics can do! Click here for the archive!

In March 1975, in the 38th issue of Shang-Chi, Master of Kung-Fu, Paul Gulacy and Dough Moench pull off this brilliantly executed bit of storytelling that has been reprinted in Marvel: Five Fabulous Decades of the World's Greatest Comics.

Not only does it so adeptly bypass the problem of boring static that can be produced in a scene so full of exposition by not using any of Wally Wood's standard 22 panels for such an occassion, but that's how you set a mood!
