A Martial Arts Week special!

O'Neil: Vic the Seeker (pt 4)
The Great Fables Crossover! (sorry Vertigo fans, not that one)

In 1988, Denny O'Neil set off to tell a great martial arts epic, and close the book on the O-Sensei, the old master introduced in Kung-Fu Fighter, responsible for teaching Richard Dragon, Bronze Tiger and Lady Shiva. While I prolly should've held this one off until after I'd posted the arc from Question v1 16-18, where Vic and Ollie first met, well, who's fault was it starting Martial Arts Week now?
But though this crossover takes place in titles starring Batman, Green Arrow and The Question,

...would probably look something like this.  Four scans from Fantastic Four #570, the first issue of the new Hickman/Eaglesham creative team.

FYI, Mary Jane Watson fans: Marvel's just put out a new TPB called Spider-Man/Mary Jane: You've Just Hit the Jackpot! that collects MJ-centric stories from throughout the character's history. I'm happy I finally own the Parallel Lives graphic novel! Now back to your regularly scheduled post, already in progress.

We're all familiar with this classic moment, right? But what happened after Peter opened the door? Scans from ASM #43.

Another addition to the martial arts week and again with Batman. Hey, we all have our single-minded obsessions, don't we? And that was a serious question. Anyway, this is a just short fight scene from the mind-blowingly excellent Prey storyline by Doug Moench, in which he provides a re-imagined version of Dr. Hugo Strange. Somewhat ironically it was originally meant to be a non-canonical story, but it was so good and popular that it became the foundation for the canon Hugo Strange. I would highly recommend the story to anyone, as it is worth it. Now it had a lot of good action sequences as well as excellent character moments, including an extremely brutal mental attack against Bruce, but I'm just posting this one scene as it doesn't require knowledge of the rest of the storyline to understand how awesome a scene it is.

so, Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot.

Frank Miller-penned, Geof Darrow-drawn, and pretty much exactly what it says: Big Guy and Robot fight things.

(You may remember the show; that followed this two-issue affair.)

However, those things need to be created... by science. Oh, science, why? )

Many years ago, I knew someone who had these panels printed up as a Christmas card. When I saw this sequence again in a collection, it brought back a swirl of happy memories and maybe some here will enjoy it as well.
