Friday Night Fights: Terrible Swift Sword!

It’s been another rough-and-tumble week, and what we all need to get us eased into the weekend is a stiff shot of brutally violent, extra-violent, extremely violent violence! Time to kick it hardcore! ‘Cause it’s time for FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS!

Tonight’s punishing platter of pain comes courtesy of E. Nelson Bridwell and Bob Oksner in “Secret of the Smiling Swordsman” from August 1975’s Shazam! #19:

Uhh. That’s… That’s… Dangit, that’s kinda bizarre, ya know?

Pffh. Man, I’m not sure this is appropriate for a family audience. Am I gonna get arrested for this?

Okay, okay, I can’t resist. “Why does she laugh at my mighty sword? Were my parry and thrust not impressive enough? Could all that random poking have caused damage to my previously impressive sabre?”

“Zounds! Her riposte has damaged my epee!”

No one touchés Spacebooger’s inquartata!

    One of my favorites! It’s not something people usually associate with ENB, but he really seemed to love writing the strong female character who just is not impressed by the blustering villain and refuses to take him seriously.

    And the art here is awesome, and that girl is drawn pretty cute! Is that a member of the Marvel Family? Can I still get a copy of these comics through DC showcases or something?

    Yep, that’s Mary Marvel, and there are a ton of those madcap Marvel Family moments in the DC Showcase Presents volume of “Shazam!” 🙂
