Friday Night Fights: Classic Round 3

En memoriam for my New God brothers who didn’t make it!!

I mean brothers literally, of course. Sibling rivalry, Fourth World style!

Now with extra exclamation points!!!

Let’s review the card:

The Main Event:

Orion!!

Versus

Kalibak!!!


We join our fight already in progress!


Few things are as lonely as having to chant your own name.

No kicking, scratching, hitting below the belt, Omega Beams, Astro-Forces,
or Beta-Clubs... ah, screw it, commence'ta getting it on!!


Poor Kalibak, no one can predict the fickle workings of King Jack!

What's this?! A ringer! The silent runner, Black Racer sneaks into the ring!


Does the Ski Pole of Death count as a foreign object?

Kalibak might be bearded carrion, but you don’t see him hawking kills
like the Vietnam Vet cum embodiment of death here.



Winner and still champeeeeen: Death on Skis, the Black Racer!

Who saw that coming?



Les Nouveaux Dieux sont morts, vivent les Nouveaux Dieux!


Words and pictures by the unestimable: Jack Kirby!

New Gods, Old Gods, there’s only one who devours all: Bah-lac-tus! Bah-lac-tus!
