TKO Studios presents "Pound for Pound" by Natalie Chaidez (QUEEN OF THE SOUTH, HUNTERS, 12 MONKEYS)
Underground MMA fighter Dani Libra fears nothing...except for her recurring blackouts and fractured memories that obscure a bloody past. But when her sister is kidnapped, Dani must shine a light on the darkness in her own mind. Only question is -- can she keep her own demons at bay for long enough to save her sister?
Written by Natalie Chaidez (QUEEN OF THE SOUTH, HUNTERS, 12 MONKEYS), drawn by Andy Belanger (SWAMP THING), and colored by Daniela Miwa (THE FEARSOME DOCTOR FANG, THE OLD GUARD).

"Belanger’s art, when she fights, with punches and kicks that impact so strongly that you can almost hear the bones cracking." - Women Write About Comics
