When I first saw the thumbnail sketch Gene did of one of the villains the Green Turtle faces (see above), I was 99% sure he was based on the the character Mr.Han (played by the late Shih Kien) from Enter the Dragon.
The black outfit, the sharp nose, the claw… and he was, after all, the main baddie in one of Bruce Lee‘s best known movies.
But when I asked Gene about it, he’d never seen the movie before!
Strange coincidences, strange attractors, the mysteries of the world 🙂
Here in any case are the sketches for the character, my homage of sorts to Mr.Han. Look out for him in upcoming issues of The Shadow Hero!
