Black Jack Tarr regrets

In an amusing aside during the run of Master of Kung Fu, Shang-Chi's friend Black Jack Tarr developed an interest in culture.

It tickles my fancy to imagine Tarr in a custom van decked out with one of Frazetta's illustrations.

On May 10th, we lost That Frazetta Bloke, who left behind a vast body of beautiful fantasy illustrations, memorable comic book collaborations with the likes of Al Williamson, and a legion of admirers such as one Black Jack Tarr. RIP, Mr. Frazetta.
