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.
