It’s been far too long since mini-comics have been represented in the Friday Night Fights. Let’s fix that, shall we?
If you saw this week’s review you know where I’m going with this one. Li-San O’Rourke, half Irish (with the accent to match), half Chinese, Phantom cosplayer. Throughout the first two issues of Atari Force she keeps referring to herself as a “mere slip of a girl”, and granted she’s not on the chunky side. Not too many fat ninjas after all. It’s just weird she KEEPS calling herself that. Well, let’s see what she can do already.
“Boom” round 6
The Battlefield: Atari Force #2 (DC Comics/Atari; 1982) “Berserk” (oddly, the game this was packaged with, only with a “z”)
The Promoters: Gerry Conway & Roy Thomas (writers/creators), Ross Andru, Dick Giordano, & Mike DeCarlo (artists), Adrienne Roy (colorist), and John Costanza (letterer)
Not knowing Li-San is on their side (mostly because she’s in a disguise, breaking in, and beating people up), Martin Champion goes in to take the intruder down. Lydia somehow recognizes her but says nothing because for some reason she likes to make Martin look bad even though he’s not a bad guy. She just really hates jocks even though they shared a life-or-death experience once. Lydia Perez isn’t very nice is what I’m saying.
Personally I’m a terrible study.
