WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue Two, Page 8

    • WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue Two, Page 8

      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 8)

      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: Things get REAL on this page, and Sting doesn’t hold back with his language:

      …”lousy crumb”? Has the Stinger been taking tips from The Big Book of 1920s Putdowns, or is the writer, Mike Lackey, just a super old man? Regardless, Lex Luger isn’t one to take that lightly, replying with an insult that’s just as vicious:

      Crybaby? Nobody calls Sting a crybaby! With his dander sufficiently up, Lex soon finds himself on a deadly barrage of moves, including:

      • A backbreaker!
      • A kick to the tummy!
      • A punch to the boob!
      • An arm drag thing over the top rope!

      It’s pretty devastating stuff, and the crowd goes… well, they react, at least:

      More evidence that Mike Lackey has never seen or heard a wrestling crowd ever, but bless his heart for trying.


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