This series felt so 70's it was crazy, man. Dig it, racial unity under Kung Fu!
"When three are called, and stand as one, as one they’ll fight, their will be done…for each is born anew, THE TIGER’S SON!"
Clipped from Wikipedia: The Sons of the Tiger were three martial arts heroes featured in comic books published by Curtis Magazines (a short lived imprint of Marvel Comics) called the Deadly Hands of Kung Fu. The series was created by Gerry Conway and drawn by Dick Giordano, and was published in the early 1970s amidst the "Kung Fu" or Chopsocky movie craze.
The Sons of the Tiger made appearances in Special Collector's Edition: Savage Fists of Kung Fu #1. They also appeared in the Special Album Edition of Deadly Hands of Kung Fu. Both of these appearances contained the same story, titled "The Master Plan of Fu Manchu". In this story, the Sons of the Tiger team up with Iron Fist and Shang-Chi. The Special Collector's Edition contained the story in color, while the Special Album Edition was in black-and-white.
The Sons of the Tiger were three friends and martial arts students of Master Kee: Lin Sun, of Chinese ancestry, was the leader of the trio and adopted son of Master Kee; Abe Brown was an African American from the ghetto streets of Harlem; and Robert Diamond was a Caucasian Hollywood actor.
