Comic books featuring four former WWE wrestlers are featured in a new TampaBay.com story by Paul Guzzo. The comics feature Nikolai Volkoff, Lanny Poffo, Brian Blair, and Jim Duggan. “These guys are superheroes,” writer John Crowther said of the subject of his books. “And like comics, if you can suspend reality while you watch wrestling, there are few things more entertaining.” Read more at TampaBay.com.
Powell’s POV: The books are available through inversepress.com. The story notes that future wrestler comics include a pending book on the late Bruno Sammartino, plus Rocky Johnson and the Rock-n-Roll Express. The story also includes details about how Crowther got started on the project.
