WWE Heroes Comic Issue 1 Review

We were fortunate enough to receive a review copy of the new WWE comic book "WWE Heroes." WWE releasing a comic book was a throwback to the early 90's for me, back when WWF had the old "Battlemania" comics which were a ton of fun. They featured the Ultimate Warrior, Undertaker, The Big Bossman and other 90's stars. Those comics were a cartoony style that fit the era, and pretty much played alongside WWF storylines in the outside world. The new WWE Heroes comic is similar in the way that it features WWE stars like Triple H, John Cena, and once again The Undertaker. This comic takes a more serious approach, with much more detailed art, and a much more serious story. The book highlights some WWE in ring battles, while switching back and forth between "The dawn of time" and the similarities between the battles then and the battles in WWE rings. The story revolves around a character called "The Shadow King" and ties in with the Royal Rumble winner taking on the champion at Wrestlemania. Some very creative stuff here, and a great collectors item as well. We've included the trailer for issue number 1 below, and you can order your own issue at

  1. Spoiler: (like it matters)

    In the second issue h}{h and Jericho get murdered by terrorists at Wrestlemania.

    It's not like they are playing different people. They are "themselves" that we watch every week.

    Killing two of your top characters in the second issue is a big no no for any story.

    And to think that people have to pay 60 bucks to see WM and a bunch of terrorists ruin it and they have to
    witness two brutal murders on live TV.

    Killing wrestlers in a sport that many wrestlers already have died in real life in just not cool. And pretty classless.

    Owen Hart died in the ring and they have Triple H killed in the ring?

    And now when there are actual terrorists around to worry about this is just wrong.

    Jericho being taken to the back and killed is just something that we stay with me as one of the sickest things that has entered my mind.

    Imagine how tragic that would really be. And to actually make it happen sickens me more the child porn.

    This is the worst thing I ever encountered. *shakes head*

    My mood is really low just thinking about this. I say some f'ed up things sometimes but this shouldn't be joked about.

    I had to e-mail them about this.
