If You Loved WrestleMania, Read These Comics Next

WrestleMania-Featured

WrestleMania was this past weekend, and outside of perhaps the infamous "Attitude Era" of the late-'90s, it's never been more socially acceptable to proudly admit that you love the King of Sports, professional wrestling. The Rock is the biggest star in Hollywood, the Total Divas are taking over E, and John Cena is viral meme superstar; wrestling has officially broken through to the mainstream again.

It's also never been a better time for comics about professional wrestling, a far cry from the days of the old WCW comic or the weird one where Chyna is a bodyguard in her spare time. We've assembled a list of five of the best independent comics about wrestling, if you're still in the mood for some pro-graps after watching The Granddaddy of Them All.

The Coming of the Cosmic Cooking Comic: ‘Space Battle Lunchtime’ #1 [Review]

sblt_featured

It used to be, before most of us were born, that comics were made about anything that was popular. Westerns, war stories, romance, celebrities: whatever people were into, comics would jump on it. Then for several decades superheroes were totally dominant, but that's starting to come back around again. Today, readers' ideas about what comics can be and do has been expanded by companies like Oni, Boom, and Image.

What I'm getting at here is that there was once a version of the comics industry in which it would be surprising that it's taken this long for there to be a comic book about a cooking competition show. But in this reality, even as someone who watches and loves cooking shows, it never occurred to me that this was a possibility. But here we are, with the first issue of Space Battle Lunchtime, an Oni comic with words and art by Natalie Riess.

Hell Is A Sad Place: KC Green On ‘Graveyard Quest’ [Interview]

Graveyard-Quest-Header

KC Green’s Graveyard Quest is the tale of an odd little man who works as a graveyard and keeps his mother’s remains in a box in his shack. His father was the gravedigger before him, and his spirit haunts the graveyard, berating his son for his perceived weaknesses. When The Gravedigger wakes up one morning to find his father has absconded with his mother’s remains, he finds the resolve within himself to chase his father through the underworld and into Hell to bring his mother back.

Originally published as a webcomic in 2013, Graveyard Quest drew wide praise and has been likened to a modern day Dante’s Inferno. The comic balances wacky situations, Curb Your Enthusiasm style misunderstandings and very heavy emotional moments, and is now coming to print courtesy of Oni Press on March 23. Ahead of the collected edition’s release, ComicsAlliance spoke to KC Green about Graveyard Quest, father issues and the inherent differences that come with stories published as webcomics.
