Well, the pain meds have kept me down but not…actually, it kind of did keep me out as I did a lot of sleeping. Even now my eyes are a little sleepy but I’ve missed enough action this week. I have an anniversary post to make tomorrow and a Friday Night Fight tonight so here’s where I start coming back. I’ve also only reviewed two comics this week, which limits my choices.
Speaking of coming back, Screaming Mimi wasn’t a very notable villain, and as Songbird Melissa Gold started out as the most sky, but after our last visit with her she’s gained a whole lot of confidence. This is a good thing when you and your boyfriend have to fight a monster. Because that’s how comic worlds work. You go out, you have some fun, you fight a monster…just another date.
Roundhouse round 6
The Battlefield: Thunderbolts #9 (Marvel; December, 1997) “Life Lessons”
The Promoters: Kurt Busiek, Mark Bagley, & Vince Russell (the credits forgot to say who did what), Joe Rosas (colorist), & Dave Lanphear (letterer)
Songbird and MACH-1 come across a monster rampaging through New York. Why is he there? Darned if I know.
Justice like lightning indeed. Hmm….Sonic constructs versus light constructs. In another reality we got a Songbird versus Star Sapphire fight.
Head to Spacebooger.com by Sunday night and vote for your favorite Friday Night Fight! Winners of these 12 rounds head to the Prize Fight so feel free to join in. We could use the competition. Rules are posted on Tuesdays.
