Title: New WWE Comic Coming Soon
Post by: ChrisMWaters on December 01, 2009, 07:57:23 AM
This one deserves a thread, IMO.

Quote from: f4weeklyonline
WWE announced today the launch of WWE COMICS, which will launch issue number one ("WWE HEROES") on March 23, 2010 in association with WrestleMania. The issues are being written by Keith Champagne, who has written Justice Society of America, Green Lantern Corps, World War III and more. Get this description: "Issue #1 reveals an eternal rivalry set against the backdrop of the history of WWE. Why is the ruthless Shadow King so obsessed with WWE? What is the reason for his eternal and supernatural war with the Firstborn? And could his ancient opponent really be a member of the WWE roster?" Yeah. Andy Smith is doing the artwork, and more info is up at wwecomics.com.

Maybe it's based on the 2008 Rumble...Piper was in that, and maybe the one you think is Creed is Elijah Burke/D'Angelo Dinero

Hopefully they'll get more issues out of it than they did with the Warrior comic book. I still have issue 1 lol.

If Heidenreich was still around they could have used him in the re-make of the Warrior Christmas comic.

I vaguely remember looking through a copy of Big Apple Takedown in Borders, once. That was the novel where WWE superstars were spys trying to stop an international drug barron. The idea was that the travel schdule, as well as the fact that nobody would suspect pro wrestlers, made them the perfect secret agents and Vince agreed to it because, well, he just loves the government so much!

Notably, HHH was written as the one who ultimately saves the day.

Well, we've been saying for a long time that Cena was Superman, and now he can be.

The big crime though is that nowhere in the comic is The Hurricane.

Unless they're saving that for his own solo comic.

I wonder if these comics will tie in with the 1800s Undertaker mythology plot they have brewing for a movie.

Also, here's a picture of Bryan Alvarez and his grandmother from 1991:
