I take a look at WSU’s 5th Anniversary Show over at the Examiner. It featured some weak matches and some great matches, but it was overall a very solid event. The main event between Mercedes Martinez and Jessicka Havok was tons of fun and channeled the Attitude Era in all the right ways. Read the full review here.
Chavo Guerrero made his Impact debut, and not unsurprisingly, it looks like he may form a unit with Hernandez. Is this the formation of a new LAX?
Wrestling Is happens to be a new Youtube channel that focuses on the more fun aspects of pro wrestling. Part of that is a great new semi-regular series of animated Art of Wrestling podcast segments. Things start out with, of course, the ever lovable Cliff Compton and his African adventure. It’s hilarious and well worth a watch:
I will be honest: everyone in the world should have read this book by now. Atomic Robo is easily one of the best creations of the last decade of comics and everyone of his adventures are fun, exciting and worth reading. Atomic Robo and the Fighting Scientists of Tesladyne kicks everything off and it does so with a bang. This is a great, fun comic by two guys that just love creating great, fun comics.
Dynamite’s Kirby Genesis miniseries by Kurt Busiek, Alex Ross and Jack Herbert faced serious delays in its publishing schedule (8 issues over 1 year and a tie-in miniseries still uncompleted). But even with those delays, it proved to be a great debut for a solid universe, albeit a debut that leaves a few too many characters without much focus on them.
Still it proved to be an excellent book, and one that is now on sale for a measly eight dollars at Comixology through tomorrow.
