UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO LINKS
From: Resurrection in the Cartoon. Toronto: ECW Press, 1997.
He came from nowhere. The quickest ducker in the world. The
fastest chin in existence. The non-violent boxer, just deeking
and dodging, while his opponent flails away. Thwip! Thwip! Look
at that guy move! Look at the way he pops that lightbulb-like
head straight down, almost as though into some turtle hole in the
top of his torso. Shhzooopp! And a fist cuts through naked air,
the little guy's legs shooting wide apart. Five rounds and he
hasn't been touched.
If you listen you can hear him over the ring mike trying to persuade his opponent. "Do you think it would be a victory if you beat me?" Thwip! "That would be just one more loss for both of us." Thwip! Thwip! "The greatest victory of all is in our grasp, but I need you my brother." Thwip! Thwip! Thwip! Thwip! Thwip!
