This FINALLY got ripped.

Anyway, there was a request for a storytime, so...

Let's read Ringside while we're waiting for Andre the Giant to get ripped.

>implying that'll ever happen

Seriously though, does anyone know if that's even been released digitally?

And if not is anyone going to scan it?

The writer describes this series as "an ensemble drama". So apparently it'sa not really going to be a "traditional" wrestling comic.

Not that that's a bad thing, if you're gonna draw inspiration from somewhere, might as well be from one of the best.

Nice economy in some of the panels too.

I dunno, that's kind of a valid description - I've read a couple of 'em, and most of the popular ones focused on making one or two wrestlers look really good. Books that make the whole roster active are a more recent thing.

>>77808223
I really liked it up until the ending. I was expecting something like The Wrestler, but the mysterious beating, the threats to leave town, and now the revenge just make me think of Southern Bastards. If this just turns out to be a crime drama I'll be really dissapointed

As was mentioned earlier, the writer called it "an ensemble drama". I'd guess it's going to have very little to do with professional wrestling. Though really it's too early to tell.
>>
>>77808340
If comics were never meant to be described in wrestling terms, then they shouldn't be promoted like wrestling matches.

That said, it is annoying.

Oh fuck, that reminds me of those jobber threads that were posted a while back. 2 straight threads split down the middle with two incompatible definitions of "jobber". Absolutely maddening.
>>
>>77808406
That's extremely disappointing. I was so excited for it to be an actual wrestling comic.

>>77809679
Again, it's too early to tell. We'll find out in future issues obviously.

So what's the difference between the new Andre one and the older one? Because the older one was fucking amazing.
>>
>>77809949
Completely different comic. Probably won't be as brutal since it's "officially approved" by his estate.

Although it's not like the first one was even remotely historically accurate either.
>>
>>77808406
>>77809679
Read the letters pages, it's an interview with the two of them and they reaffirm wrestling's going to be a focus.
>>
>>77810129
It'll be interesting to see where this goes.

Love the idea of a pro-wrestling comic from Image, but this issue was pretty shit honestly. Seems like it's going to be a bland crime drama with pro-wrestling as barely a backdrop.

>>
Awfully melodramatic for a comic that's relatively uneventful, but it's still pretty decent. I'll keep reading it.
>>
>>77814579
It hasn't though. Hipsters are still anti-wrestling because it's seen as working class, i.e. not faggy enough.

Box Brown based Life & Legend on accounts from various friends, family, and second-hand retellings of Andre's own stories. He even includes his references in the back of the trade, with the explanation that he drew things like the brawls and arguments with others how he imagined them visually.
>>
>>77807557
Kind of reminds me of that Jon Favreau movie, Chef. I like it. Pretty damned comfy so far.

That's such a weird comparison.
>>
>>77814579
>>77814803
Yeah, and actually being into wrestling and staying up till 5 AM to catch those Dragon Gate and DDT shows, or trying to keep up with infrequent lucha updates, it just takes a level of commitment you average Reddit or 4chan fella in 2015 just doesn't have, nevermind the hipster subproduct.
