The Atomic Elbow: Issue 23

This is the twenty-third issue of The Atomic Elbow. There's probably a lot I could say about this one, but my house just got power again after being un-electrified for 24 hours as a result of hurricane Irma and everyone in here is pretty anxious to use the computer. I hope you and your friends are all safe. Here's what's in the 23rd issue.

This one's got a cover by M.S. Harkness.

I wrote about local promotion South East Women Wrestlers' first show.

Nathan O'Brien has an interview with photographer Wayne McCarty.

Scott Holland has your NXT: Chicago report.

I spoke with wrestling-themed vaporwave producer Limousine.

JR Goldberg went to Starrcade 2000.

Benjamin Welton is back with an article about Smoky Mountain Wrestling.

Michael Francis has an interview with James D'Amato.

A New 2-part series begins! It's the AWA again!

There's also a secret back cover illustration by Ioan Morris. I wonder if you can guess what it is?

It's all waiting for you right here!

The Atomic Elbow: Issue 22

Hello again, everyone. It's time to talk about the 22nd Issue of The Atomic Elbow!

This one's got a cover by Dylan Chadwick. Look at it!

Do you like comic books? Do you like The Undertaker? Do you want to know more about the not-very-good 1990s Undertaker series from CHAOS! Comics? Of course you do, and Michael Francis has you covered.

Billy Avery's back in the pages of The Atomic Elbow, and this time he's brought Darby Allin with him.

I've been trying to get Colette Arrand's work in The Atomic Elbow for years now, and the universe has been conspiring against us, but we finally told the universe to shove it and made it happen. Let me tell you, it was worth the wait.

Ed Blair and I return with the 3rd part in our ongoing series about wrestling-related music.

There's a thorough report on the 1992 WCW King of Cable Tournament. I'll bet you didn't even know cable had a king.

And there's another cartoon from Mister J about the time he went to the Dennis Rodman wrestling show in Australia that I wrote about in a previous issue. FULL CIRCLE.

All this can be yours right now! It's just waiting for you in the Atomic Elbow online store! Go get yours now!

The Atomic Elbow: Issue 20

Hello again.

This is pretty significant to me because this represents the end of the first five years of The Atomic Elbow's existence. It feels pretty good. I'm looking forward to seeing what the next five are going to look like.

Anyway, let's not get too sentimental. Let's talk about Issue 20. Look at that cover. The front and back covers on this thing are by Golden Cathedral Venom of Golden Harvest Industries, which is a fun name to have. It's real mysterious.

There's also art in this one from Ioan Morris:

There's a comic from Corwin Gibson:

There's an article and illustration from Dylan Chadwick:

There's another installment of the "music about wrestling" series, but this one's all just Ed writing about The Mountain Goats:

My article about the USWA Championship Tournament concludes:

There's a comic from Josh Hicks:

There's art from Lukasz Kowalczuk:

There's an article in this one from Scott "Star of Savage" Holland, too. I guess I forgot to take a picture of that one. But it's in there, and it's good. Trust me.

Anyway, thanks for five years of whatever it is we've been doing here.

All this is waiting for you right now at The Atomic Elbow Online Store.

The Atomic Elbow Issue 19!

Hey, guys. It's here.

It's the 19th issue of The Atomic Elbow. I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out, and I think you will be, too. First of all, look at that cover! It's by Jethro Wall. So many forks! Once you get past that cover, you'll see Beaver's drawing of Okada.

That photo is obscured and blurry. You'll have to get your own copy to see how great this drawing actually is (hint... It is really great). This one starts out with an article by John Langmead about the movie Memphis Heat.

Scott Holland's here again. This time it's to tell you about the time he saw the birth of Austin 3:16.

We sent Michael Francis back out On Assignment to write about the recent WWE tour of Australia.

Benjamin Welton returns with a Pacific Northwest history lesson.

Ed Blair and I decided to listen to every single wrestling-related piece of pop music ever recorded and write about it. Get used to this one. It's gonna take us a while to get through all of it.

I wrote about the USWA's Championship Tournament.

There's an EXCLUSIVE excerpt of Łukasz Kowalczuk's new book in this issue. It's the first English-language publication of this material.

There are also MORE COMICS from Jason "Mister J." Conlan. It's fun for everyone and ALL OF THIS is still only five American dollars. Why not head on over to The Atomic Elbow Online Store and buy your copy right now!
