Here at ComicsAlliance we’ve noticed over the years that there’s a huge overlap between superhero comics fans and wrestling fans, almost as if people who are drawn to the violent over-the-top adventures of cartoonish, brightly costumed, outlandishly gimmicky heroes and villains might also enjoy superhero stories. In fact, if we’re honest, wrestling is basically superhero theater.
It's WrestleMania week! Or rather, it was WrestleMania week and we're all on that post 'Mania comedown. This week (in spandex) we've got a jam-packed edition including NXT Takeover Dallas, WrestleMania itself and that always memorable post-Mania RAW. We've got debuts, surprise returns and some of the best matches of the year, all over the course of one blockbuster week.
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.
Here at ComicsAlliance we’ve noticed a huge overlap between superhero comics fans and wrestling fans; wrestling is basically superhero theater. This Week in Spandex is a new weekly feature in which a longtime fan and a newcomer to the world of wrestling look back on the latest developments in the world of WWE.
At least, that's how it's supposed to work. But this week is obviously pretty special... because it's WrestleMania weekend, and our wrestling expert Chris Sims has one last chance to convince completely disinterested wrestling skeptic Andrew Wheeler to spend three-plus hours watching the WWE’s biggest show of the year. To start, he'll have to explain what Wrestlemania is.
As Hans Gruber once said, Christmas is "the season of miracles," and there is nothing more miraculous than the present Warner Bros. has just given us. After announcing all the way back in August of 2012 that there was going to be an animated crossover movie between Scooby-Doo and World Wrestling Entertainment, it seems that my dream of a better world is perilously close to becoming reality. Today, a trailer for Scooby-Doo WrestleMania Mystery has arrived online, and it is everything I have ever hoped for in my life.
The trailer, featuring appearances by the Miz, Brodus Clay, Sin Cara, AJ Lee, Triple H, Kane and, of course, John Cena, teases plenty of in-ring action for Scooby and Shaggy, although Velma and Daphne's heated rivalry for the Divas Championship remains unconfirmed. Check it out below!
Ah, springtime, when a young man's fancy turns to... WrestleMania! It's our annual 'Mania-themed podcast, and this time, we're welcoming Glory and Morbius: The Living Vampire writer Joe Keatinge and podcaster Danielle Matheson for a roundtable discussion of this year's biggest wrestling event -- and you can listen to the whole show right here on ComicsAlliance...
It's the most wonderful time of the year, everybody: WrestleMania Time! And to mark the occasion, Chris and Matt are pleased to welcome not one guest, but a tag-team of wrestling excitement: Super Pro KO...
