Friday Night Fights: G7 - Fight Music! - Round 9: Bulls On Parade!

Howdy, Pardners! I'm goin' into Round 9 of Friday Night Fights: G7 - Fight Music! with guns blazing! The guns of Jonah Hex, that is.

Tonight, we spotlight a tale from Jonah Hex#32 titled "Gunfight At Murphysburg!", written by Michael Fleisher and illustrated by the awesome Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, who proved here that he could draw more than just Superman well. Our fight music for tonight is "Bulls On Parade" by Rage Against The Machine, for reasons which will become clear later.

Synopsis: Jonah rides into Murphysburg looking to deliver some payback to Arbee Stoneham, a veteran bounty hunter who handed Jonah a humiliating defeat on his first foray into bounty hunting. Jason Crowley and his gang, whom Jonah had been pursuing earlier, happen to be in Murphysburg at the same time and learn of Jonah's plans. Crowley decides this is the perfect opportunity for the gang of eleven men to ambush Jonah at the stockyards, since he has to pass through there to get to Stoneham.

Let's see how that works out for them, shall we?

As you can see, Jonah had already found out about their plans, thanks to an old drunk who had been sleeping off a bender at the same time and place where Crowley's men were setting up their attack.

Four down.....

Seven down!

But lest you think Jonah will have it too easy......

But that doesn't mean Jonah's down and out, as these roughnecks will learn...

Nine down!

Ok, that's eleven down. Jonah's home free... Oh, wait! I said it was the eleven-man gang and Jason Crowley! So....

Right now, I bet you're wondering why I picked the song "Bulls On Parade".

That's why.

"Bulls on Parade!!!!"

Spacebooger knows that when you mess with the bull, you get the horns.

I love how he's keeping track, and counts down. Jonah never loses track of the essentials.

And that's awful purty art too.
