Wrestling-type comic books...

I'm not a big Wrestling fan (which is a little puzzling since you'd think guys in spandex beating each other up would be my bag, but apparently the fact that every single major emotional moment seems to happen in the ring kind of threatens my suspension of disbelief. Also Pay-per-view gets expensive real fast.) but I always wondered why there wasn't more Wrestling/Comic Book crossover type things.

The personas seem pretty much made for comics, after all. Kind of the same way soap operas and comics have a lot in common. And it's a lot cheaper than Pay-Per-View so I might give it a try.

    Because Wrestling comics are all supremely awful. They set new standards for shitty comic booking...

    Look for scans of "Warrior" the comic about The Warrior. Written by the Warrior. Soooooo terrible...

    And a close second to ANY of the books that CHAOS! put out about wrestlers...

    Gavok over at 4thLetter does the occasional post on them...

    Funny that you mentioned this. I was working on a book based on the WWE characters. Long story short, it failed utterly. I can email you the details if you want them.

    Jerry Frissen's Lucha Libre is supremely successful, artistically. Nominated for an Eisner, too. No idea what sales are like. First time I've laughed aloud at a "humor" comic in years.
    And don't forget Jaime Hernandez's Whoa, Nellie! and the dozens of wrestling storylines in Love and Rockets.

    Excellent because I have a lot of comic books because i like the way the heroes get his goals, that's the reason I have a big collection at home.
