The Tenth Issue of The Atomic Elbow
Look at that! It's the 10th issue of The Atomic Elbow. You know what happens now, right? I'm going to try to get you to buy it. I really think you should. It's good, and I think you would like it.
Let's take a look inside:
The inside covers have some drawings of wrestlers that The Black Cat (co-host of The Old School Wrestling Podcast) did when he was eleven years old.
There's a story about the time Corwin Gibson kind of went to Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan's wedding. Don't worry, it's not creepy. The whole thing was filmed for an episode of Total Divas.
Box Brown made a comic book biography of Andre the Giant. You've probably heard of it because it was a New York Times Bestseller. No big deal. This issue has an interview with Box and some never-before published pages that were too hot for his publisher to put in the book. Or maybe they were cut for space and pacing reasons. But I'm going to tell you it's because they were too hot. They weren't. But I'm going to tell you they were. Box Brown is an awesome dude. For real.
Our friend J. "Anonymous" Rex went to WrestleMania. Remember WrestleMania? It's this wrestling festival they have every year? Anyway, apparently it's a "thing." Read this article and find out what the heck is up with that whole thing...
I wrote about another episode of that Hulk Hogan cartoon. In this one, some children almost kill some pedestrians and then they beat up some cops. It's fun.
Chris Sims wrote an article about William Regal. That sentence should be all you need to convince your brain that you need to read this article. I mean, really.
If you're a living human being, you have probably wondered what happened on WCW's Nitro every time it was broadcast from Chicago. Luckily, Scott Holland's here to give you that information. Well, not here, exactly. What I mean is that his words are in this 'zine. You know what's up.
These pictures are getting kind of blurry because I was hungry and my dinner was sitting out on the table and I didn't want a cat to eat it. Sorry. What I'm not sorry about is this interview with the dudes from the band Vaderbomb by Avery Boysenberry.
There's also another illustration by the always magnificent Hand of Beaver. You're gonna love it. You'll probably love Chips & Beer magazine, too. Beaver's work is all over that thing.
All of this is still only five of your American dollars and that price includes domestic postage. I'm not sure how long I can keep that deal up, but it's still going on now and that's what matters.
So, fire up the ol' PayPal machine and head on over to The Official Atomic Elbow Online Store to get your copy today. I'll send you some stickers and stuff, too.
