What are your favourite Multi-Issue Fights in comics?
« on: March 13, 2018, 08:52:52 PM »
Chatting about Invincible in the GD forum got me wondering why (in this decompressed era) we see LESS multiple issue fights in today's comics.

Looking back which are your favourites and why?

Personally I am a big fan of Invincible vs. Conquest (which spanned 3 issues IIRC) which I think does a great job of putting the hero in peril (multiple times) and then saving the hero with a believable 'get out'. Lots of fantastic touches along the way such as Conquest's (Double Page Spread dialogue basically telling Mark thanks for the fight but now he's going to kill him, Eve's 'Death', "Getting angry doesn't make you stronger" etc.)

I also like Superman vs. Doomsday although more for its significance than it being a well-staged fight.

Thanos vs Marvel Universe in Infinity Gauntlet springs to mind.  I've rarely seen it done well, honestly.

Sucker for it, but WWH. Especially WWH:X Men.

Thor vs Mangog in Jurgens run. Such a satisfying end.

Sinestro Corps War.

Agreed with both sentences, at least when it comes to Western comics.

Busiek wrote a few long form action scenes I enjoyed in Avengers, IIRC (Kang, Ultron, Count Nefaria).

I would apply it to some manga stuff.  It is one of the reasons why I am not a huge DBZ fan.

Yeah, DBZ became tedious, but the lomg form fights were much more creative when it was plain old DB, in my opinion.

In general, manga seems to handle multi-issue battles better just because decompression is much more common in Japan, though plenty can still get boring in my eyes.

Ultra Humanite vs America All Star Squadron. Issues 21-26 plus Annual 2 (IIRC). It was of course more a team fight with all the underlings Ultra had aquired.

Black Adam vs Everyone

American comics don't tend to do one v one multi issue fights.
