christopherrinaldi asked: Hi, Aubrey. Seems like pro wrestling and comic books go hand in hand. There is a large cross-section of fans who love both forms of entertainment, as well as quite a few wrestlers who are avid comic book readers (CM Punk and Christopher Daniels, for example). Heck, the Ultimate Warrior even had his own comic book. As a man whose professional career has spanned both sports entertainment and the graphic arts, do you see a mashup project in the future -- or can you recommend anything that exists?

straightshoot:

I certainly think so, but you’d be shocked and pretty disheartened to find out how many people within the comic book industry look down their nose at wrestling. Despite all the similarities and the fact that wrestling is massively popular, some folks in mainstream comics like to pat themselves on the back for being highbrow, and as a result, try and position their work as somehow better than wrestling. It’s absurd.

Without tipping my hand too much, I will say that I’m working a very wrestling-centric comic project with an artist right now. No schedule for its release just yet, but when it’s ready, it’s going to blow people away. I feel confident in saying that it’s going to be like absolutely nothing else you’ve seen or read before. 

In terms of other stuff to check out…unfortunately there’s not a lot. You might be able to find some old English translations of Kinnikuman, which I’ve never read, but looks bonkers, and if you wanted to go back issue hunting, you could find some Marvel books focusing on the Unlimited Class Wrestling Federation.

For now though, I’d recommend my pal Box Brown’s comic biography of Andre the Giant!
