Sal's Sunday Punch #6

Y'know sometimes you need more oomph to your punch. Sometimes you need to really really knock it out of the park. The best way to do that, of course, is to get Sal Buscema to draw the thing. But if you want to really take it over the top there's only one way to do it.

You gotta go for the Double Sal Buscema Punch.

From Captain America #150, written by Gerry Conway, drawn
by Sal Buscema and inked by Tony Mortellaro and John Verpoorten.
So in this story Cap and his sidekick The Falcon fight alongside Batroc the Leaper against an evil doppelganger of The Stranger, who actually wants to die and is trying to get the heroes to kill him. Sorta.

But none of that is important. What's important is that two dudes at once punch the Stranger and he goes flying, flipping over backwards and screaming. Sal Buscema style.

  1. I feel it is an important distinction that the Falcon was Captain America's partner, not his sidekick. That's, at least, the relationship I took away from the Kirby interpretation of their working dynamic.
