Review: Pound for Pound

Pound for Pound

Syfy is one of those networks which has gradually become a one-stop-shop for genre fans. The network has had its share of so-so fair like the inconsistent but ultimately becoming better than its source material, Dominion. Then there are those shows that found that sweet balance between comedy and fantasy like Warehouse 13 and Eureka. Then there are those shows that last one season and leave a hefty impression on viewers like The Dresden Files.

Much like the Paul Blackthorn lead series, the other show on the network that felt like it was gone too son, is the one and done Blood Drive Which was a show which surrounded a televised race where the cars thrived on blood and a cop and woman searching for her sister gets pulled into the competition for different reasons. The most intriguing part of the show was the melodrama between the female racer and her search for her sister, which we find out by series end, is more complicated than we had come to believe. In Natalie Chaidez’s, Andy Belanger’s and Daniela Miwa’s Pound For Pound, we find one protagonist much like the SyFy show, whose love for family will see her go to the ends of the earth to save them.

We meet Dani Libra, an underground MMA fighter in the midst of a heated fight that doesn’t go as planned and she inadvertently wins. This angers the local crime lord whose money shot lost and whose debt she now finds herself. From there, the story turns into a grindhouse tale of revenge and pure action as Dani must figure out what to do when her sister is kidnapped as insurance due to the money she owes.

Overall, a story that is a gritty story that combines elements of Drive Angry and Lucha Underground. The story by Chaidez is action-packed contemplative, and well characterized. The art by the creative team is breathtaking. Altogether, a story that shows that family is always what matters most.
