Friday Night Fights: Canelo - Round 7: Stomp The Hulk!

Tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Canelo is a sequel of sorts to a previous fight posted by yours truly from Incredible Hulk#154 by Archie Goodwin, Herb Trimpe, and John Severin. In that fight, the Hulk had taken an old vial of the shrinking serum Hank "Ant Man" Pym had used to rescue the Fantastic Four from the Microverse years earlier, only to find it had deteriorated and only reduced him to the size of a gerbil. When we last left that scaled-down smackdown, the Hulk had clobbered a cocky Chameleon and sought to escape captivity from HYDRA's lair. In the interim between then and the scene depicted in tonight's round, Ant-Man rescued our Green Skinned Former Goliath, only to discover the defective shrinking serum's effects were not quite complete.


Tonight's foot-stomping fight music is by the Happy Mondays.

Friday Night Fights: Canelo - Round 5: Pay The Devil!

For tonight's round of Friday Night Fights: Canelo I'll be showing you a devilishly good fight courtesy of Daredevil #164, written by Roger McKenzie and illustrated by Frank Miller and Klaus Janson. Synopsis: Matt Murdock's father Battlin' Jack Murdock didn't take a dive during a fight Matt was watching like his manager, the Fixer, ordered him to, so the Fixer had him killed. Now Matt has grown up to be the crimefighter Daredevil, and he wants revenge.

Now that's the kind of art that propelled Frank Miller into an illustrious career and all the later cranky excesses that went with it.

Tonight's fight music comes from The Knack.
