Friday Night Fights: Boogaloo - Round 8: May the Force Be WHIFF You!

We all make mistakes, so for tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Boogaloo, I'm showing how making a mistake can work to your advantage.

Tonight's Force-driven fracas comes from Star Wars#38 by Archie Goodwin, Michael Golden, and Terry Austin. Synopsis: After escaping Imperial trooper ships,  Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia are stranded on a mysterious spaceship made of living metal (no, not this one). After they are separated, Luke tries to get his bearings and....

....all hell breaks loose.

How does Luke get out of this impossible situation?

By intentionally making a mistake and whiffing on a swing.

In this case one wrong definitely makes a right.

Elvis Costello, the source of this week's fight music, would agree.
