    • WCW Comic Book Reading Club: Issue Two, Page 9

      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: This page of the WCW comic comes to you from beautiful Reseda, California, as Ron Simmons delivers an apron powerbomb to Lex Luger:

      Well, either that or the artist has never seen a wrestling match and assumes that when a dude tosses another dude back into the ring, they just hurl them over the top rope. Sure, that wouldn’t make any sense but THIS IS THE WCW COMIC, BROTHER, WE DON’T CARE ABOUT MAKING SENSE.

      Speaking of not making sense, Sting continues to use phrases he never, ever used in real-life but do help make it very clear that this comic was set in the early ’90s:

      “Gracias, dude”? Easy there, Bart Simpson. He then tries again to coin his catchphrase, which is just NOT happening:

      If you’re planning on Googling ‘stingersized’ to try and work out what he’s going on about, don’t bother:

      It was invented for the comic, and aside from the poor jerks like me who bothered to write about it, that’s where it died. RIP Stingersized: You never made it onto a t-shirt, and that’s probably for the best.


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