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: Jim Ross and The Computerized Announcer of the ’90s, Terrence Taylor react to Lex Luger’s incredible burial of everything and announcement that he’s leaving forever:
First off, Terrence Taylor’s “like myself, Lex is a tailor made man” line is just about the worst thing ever. Second of all, wow, you would have thought they’d have more to say about their champion abandoning the company and seemingly taking the belt to go to ‘greener pastures’. However, you can forgive them for having bigger things to address – specifically, the BRUISE CRUISE:
And I am SO HAPPY that we’re finally at this point. Honestly, the next issue is maybe my favourite comic of all time. It’s like, having written two issues of the WCW comic, the writer realises:
1) Writing a comic about wrestling is pretty boring.
2) NOBODY IS PAYING ANY ATTENTION TO THE WCW COMIC SO HE CAN DO WHATEVER HE WANTS TO DO.
And what does he want to do? Not to spoil things too much, but imagine the exact plot of Die Hard but swap a skyscraper for a cruise ship and Bruce Willis for Sting and you’re not far off. It’s so crazy and good.
Finally, on the last page of the comic, we get a special Sting pin-up. Why not print it out and hang it on your wall? I’ll leave you to do that, and then we’ll catch up for ISSUE THREE (AKA THE GREATEST COMIC EVER).
