comic book carnage translated!

Also from the pages of Esquire back in 1973 is this translation of one of the rough and raw manhua aka HK comic books. Not sure which one it is, but it does have the same feel as the Tony Wong's early Little Rascals comics (aka Oriental Heroes) which I posted some early covers of here. For more info, pick up a copy of Wendy Siuyi Wong's "Hong Kong Comics" which covers the little known world of the HK comic pulps. Click to enlarge.


And big thanks to Groovy Age of Horror for posting the link to Blonde Zombies (via Tomb It May Concern), my new fave blog, which as I browsed it for the first time, was delighted to see they posted and linked to my original Little Rascals cover postings.

i can't believe i missed this! ack!
not that i'm any great manhua expert or anything but it really looks like "little rascals/siu lau-man" after the little rascal wong siu-lung "went good" by killing evil guys and before wong changed the title--to "oriental heroes/lung fu mun"--and the format to get around a 1975 indecent publication law.

nice score! and wendy siuyi wong's book's amazing.
