Cosmic Treadmill ep. 79 - WCW: World Championship Wrestling #1 (1992)

Good evening, comics enthusiasts, and let's get ready to rumble! This week, the tag team comic book podcasters Chris (@AceComics) and Reggie (@reggiereggie) dive into an extreme era of professional wrestling when they read Mike Lackey and Ron Wilson's WCW: World Championship Wrestling #1, published by Marvel Comics in 1992! After some biographical information about the creators--and wrestlers!--and a brief, but detailed, history of WCW, they head right into the squared circle and describe the blow-by-blow of this issue. Then they'll talk about other wrestling comics, wrestling in comics, and comics in wrestling! It's not over until someone taps out or gets thrown in a casket, so sit back and enjoy the ride!
