This Week In Spandex: Deep In The Heart Of Texas
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.
If You Loved WrestleMania, Read These Comics Next
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.

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.
This Week In Spandex: The Mysteries of WrestleMania
Here at ComicsAlliance we’ve noticed a huge overlap between superhero comics fans and wrestling fans; wrestling is basically superhero theater.

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.
