Friday Night Fights: Felonious thunk!

It's been a while since I've taken part in the storied slugfest known as Friday Night Fights, so I figured this first round was no time to play nice.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you a fighter so tough her name alone is a serious crime:

Kyle Baker is one of my favorite creators, and his work on the knife-edged satire Special Forces should be required reading because really war is hell — even if you're a scantily clad, ass-kicking soldier called Felony.

Don't call it a comeback — I been here for years!

I KNOW, I KNOW! I guess when you do these sorts of things, somebody is bound to post the same dang panel eventually.

Anyway, you posted yours first, so it only seemed fair that to redo mine. And I always look for a chance to talk up "Special Forces," so it works out!

Dude, this happens to me all the time! Go with your original, fer graud's sake! It's not like anyone can actually predict what other people are going with! GO WITH YOUR ORIGINAL!

Special Forces was one awesome series. Somewhere, Harvey Kurtzman is smiling.

Scott: It was seriously not a big deal — you went and deleted your whole post! Put it back!!

Rob: It's a great series, and really shows the power of the medium. It's some of Baker's best work.
