WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue One, Page 22

    • WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue One, Page 22

      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: So Lex Luger made good on his promise to cripple anyone who came gunning for him, and now his henchmen are apparently ‘breaking out a stretcher’ for poor Ron Simmons:

      And I am CONFUSED by this. Doesn’t he need the stretcher? Aren’t they ultimately just being helpful here? As a villainous thing to do, it doesn’t really work!

      Like, if you give me an ice cream but call me a complete fucking prick while you hand it to me, the end result is I still have an ice cream. Your motivation might have been to make me feel bit, but I’m too busy enjoying a frozen treat to pay much attention to your insult. Does that analogy work? Sure it does! Ice cream. Stretchers.

      Meanwhile, Missy Hyatt tries to interview Lex, but she ends up getting taken straight to the SICK BURN clinic:

      YESSS, SICK BURNS ARE BACK IN THE WCW COMIC. Missy takes it in her stride though, and manages to secure an EXCLUSIVE interview with Lex that seems to go on for about half an hour:

      TL;DR:, Lex is a bit of a dick.

      And, as he gets pelted with trash, the issue ends! We made it! There is a tease of what’s to come though; four letters, one word:

      Who said kayfabe was dead? See you then!


      @tomblackett is super into wrestling and comics. He also writes The Merch Table for this very website.
