WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue Two, Page 19

    • WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue Two, Page 19

      rd  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 19)

      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 that’s your El Gigante making shortcut of Lex Luger’s trenchcoat twins but WAIT, where the fuck are Big Josh, Flyin’ Brian and P.N. News? Did they leave already? Was the last page just fulfilling Marvel’s contractual obligation to have an appearance from P.N. News in every issue? This is the absolute worst.

      Gigante steps into the ring to face Lex, and The Computerized Announcer of the ’90s, Terrence Taylor decides it’s time to come up with a cute nickname for his commentary partner:

       ‘Rossie’? SAUCE IT!

      Back in the ring, Lex Luger ‘cheap shots’ an opponent while they’re directly facing him for the third time in the WCW comic:

      Seriously, El Gigante is looking right at Lex and just lets him belt him over the head! What’s more, this is only a page after Luger did almost exactly the same thing with a steel chair to his knees! YOU GOTTA LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES, BROTHER.

      As the old saying goes, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, fool me three times, welcome to WCW: The Comic.


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