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?
Give it a bump if you're reading.
Keatinge is... not the greatest writer, but the concept is strong, so i really don't know what to expect from this series.
But we can always use more professional wrestling comics though. And Super Pro KO vol. 3 is taking FOREVER to come out.
The writer describes this series as "an ensemble drama". So apparently it'sa not really going to be a "traditional" wrestling comic.
This artist really wants to be Risso huh?
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'm not really down with the art.
The thing I'm most worried about though is whether or not this is even going to have anything to do with professional wrestling.
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.
I can't think of anything of his that I've been all that into.
Why does every fucking indie book have to have "interviews with the writers" in the back of the first issue?
So what do you guys think?
And if you want to download this there's a link in the Win-O'.
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.
You're a godsend anon. Was looking for a download just an hour or so ago after seeing it in a comic shop yesterday.
>mfw all the pack titles explicitly said "NO RINGSIDE"
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.
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.
It hasn't though. Hipsters are still anti-wrestling because it's seen as working class, i.e. not faggy enough.
>was even remotely historically accurate either
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.
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.
