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 (Issue Two, Page 2)
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: Roving reporter Missy Hyatt continues to lay out the repercussions since the last issue, and at least we’re getting some new info here! Apparently Ron Simmons got off lightly from being piledriven headfirst on a metal trophy by Lex Luger, and he’s only got a herniated disc:
What’s MOST interesting to me here though is that Lex Luger called his piledriver finisher an ‘Attitude Adjustment‘. Is that common knowledge? Why hasn’t there been a John Cena / Lex Luger feud to capitalise on this?!? I mean, sure, Lex has had his issues with drug addiction and paralysis, but he’s bounced back! Brother, a worker’s a worker. Wrestlemania 30, let’s make it happen.
There’s also some vintage WCW booking on display, with the main event announced as Lex defending the title in a three-on-one handicap match against the top three contenders:
Man, the WCW Championship Committee doesn’t mess around. There’s no explanation of how it will work (does the guy who pins Lex get the title, or do they have to all share it between them?), but that doesn’t matter! The main event is set with the classic story of a dastardly heel having to overcome the odds and beat three good guys all at the same time.
Anyway, Lex doesn’t really care too much, instead choosing to talk more trash about the man he’s already crippled:
You might think Ron Simmons is pretty much taken care of now he’s in hospital, but Lex Luger doesn’t care! His priorities might be a little skewed, given he’s got to fight THREE DUDES AT THE SAME TIME LATER, but there’s something admirable about a guy with such commitment.
ANYWAY. That’s it for now. The WCW Comic Book Reading Club is taking a break next week, so I’ll see you in October!
