Friday Night Fights--Larry Lieber Style!!

You know who never gets nearly enough respect?

Larry Lieber.

"Yeah, yeah, Stan's little brother."

But you know who wrote the actual script for Thor's first appearance? And Iron Man? And Ant-Man?

Larry Lieber.

"Yeah, yeah, he just filled out dialogue balloons, Stan did the plotting."

Well, do you know who came up with the actual names Donald Blake, Hank Pym and Tony Stark?

That's right--Larry Lieber.

And do you know who wrote and drew the Rawhide Kid strip for 10 years?!?!

I think you know the answer. Which brings us to this week's Friday Night Fights.

A friend of Rawhide's has been framed, and he has to catch the last of the owlhoots alive in order to prove it!

Ladies and gentlemen...




Spacebooger reminds us that Lieber also scripted the first appearances of Odin and Loki...

Lieberific beatdown comes from Rawhide Kid #94 (1971), as reprinted in Rawhide Kid #146 (1978), written and drawn by Larry Lieber, inked by George Roussos

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? Larry. Freakin'. Lieber. Now go vote!!
