  Wait, Fu Manchu's secret super drug is champagne mixed with orange juice? Who knew...

  But...I'm thinking all of that mind control chemical going into the air isn't a good thing. Also, why did Fu need all of that there? If the idea was for him to convince a gas tycoon to allow him to add the chemicals, why did he have a batch pre-made?
The ending for that henchman was brutal. Can you even imaging being in so much pain that you set your face on fire so that you'll die quicker?!

  Ah, the shoreline cliffs of Florida...
Also, Florida didn't have a lot of civil war battles. They should probably leave the South to Gerber.

  Wow. Crazy story. Fu Manchu had quite a plan going. Shang-Chi was admittedly lucky that Satma elected to kill himself because he couldn't stand the pain Fu Manchu inflicted on him and the earlier defeat to Shang-Chi which clearly psyched him out too much. But torching his own head and running into a gunpowder store? Ouch!

4 stars. Amazing how Steve Englehart almost instantly gets the feel for a character right off the bat. I still think he's one of Marvel's best writers of the early to mid 70s.

  I love how they handle the characters like Black Jack. He's obviously racist, but the writing itself isn't, which turns what could be a really painful read into a very enjoyable one.
