Richard Dragon, Kung-Fu Fighter 2 - Richard and Ben meet Carolyn Woosan

Denny O'Neil now starts writing under his own name, and is joined by Jim Starlin, Alan Lee Weiss and Al Milgrom on the art for Richard Dragon, Kung-Fu Fighter 2 (June/July 1975).

The story begins with a brief recap of the previous issue. Ben Turner is showing no signs of having been recently shot, although the story implies that this issue is taking place relatively soon after the last one. A woman approaches Ben and Richard Dragon, introducing herself as Carolyn Woosan, and claiming to be the goddaughter of the Sensei (called the O Sensei, though I'm not quite sure if that is a name or a title). The two men are surprised, as he had not mentioned her during all the years they were training with him.

She just decides to tag along with Richard and Ben, which turns out to be a good thing, for her. A seemingly endless number of men keep showing up, trying to kidnap her. Ben and Richard keep fighting them off, and once again Ben gets shot, this time in the leg.

The men who are after Carolyn are working for a man called the Swiss, who wants a letter that Carolyn's uncle mailed to her, although Carolyn insists she knows nothing about the letter, and hasn't received it.

It's the barest of plot lines, and basically just serves as the basis for a whole bunch of martial arts fighting scenes. Carolyn winds up on the run, trailed by the Swiss, while Richard keeps fighting off her attackers.

The story continues in the next issue.
