    WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue Three, Page 3

    WCW: The Comic Book was published in the early 90s by Marvel Comics. Nobody in wrestling or comics paid it much attention, and after 12 issues, it was cancelled and lost to the ages. Until now.

    On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, @tomblackett will post a new page of the WCW comic with his comments and we’ll read through it together. We’ll be there for each other, through the good (Vader! The Steiners! Sting! Cactus Jack!) and the (Johnny B.) Badd.

    WCW: The Comic is probably the property of Marvel Comics / WWE, though I’m not entirely sure. This website makes no claims to own it; all panels and images are posted in the spirit of fair use and are the property of their respective owners and creators.

    Tom: AWWW YES LOOK WHO’S MAKING HIS DEBUT IN THE WCW COMIC:

    It’s Cactus Jack! Looking more like Vader cosplaying as Cactus Jack, but you know what they say, the comics panel adds about 70 pounds.

    He also seems to be struggling with the concept of an inner monologue, in that… well, there’s nothing inner about it, he’s just straight up shouting out his plans with Sting only a few feet away.

    But what are his plans? Judging by his conversation with The Young Pistols, it’s something like this:

    • Incapacitate Sting.
    • Blow up the boat (making sure to make a note of ‘the look on Sting’s face right before he explodes’).
    • ‘Hop on a lifeboat and sail away to enjoy our newfound riches’.

    As nefarious schemes go, it’s… okay? Honestly, I’d probably just blow the boat up and assume that Sting will look pretty bummed out in the moments before he explodes.

    Still, they all seem to agree that their plot to murder hundreds of innocent people for the sake of ca$h money and wrestling glory is a good’ un, so they share a triple high five to seal the deal:

    for-life

    Man, you can see why The Kliq came up with the Wolfpac hand signal, since otherwise it just looks like you’re all stroking each other’s hands when you put them together. Not that three grown men can’t enjoy a good hand-stroking, but it does look awfully awkward.
