This weekend, the New York Comic Con takes over the Jacob Javitts Center. It’s estimated that 140,000 people will attend this year, artists and fans alike. There will be something for everyone at NYCC, including wrestling fanatics like us. Headlocked Comics will be on display in booth 475. The wrestler and wrestling fan supported comic will be a gathering point; Wrestlers like Hurricane Shane Helms and Jerry the King Lawler will be there, taking pictures and signing photos. Both contributed to the book as well The Last Territory Part 1.
But this year NYCC (also being called Super Week) is extending to the world wide web. For Headlocked, for instance, you can back Michael Kingston’s Kickstarter for The Last Territory Part 2 and receive Part 1 in the process.
You can also pick up this print Christopher Alvarez and Gisele Jobateh created. It depicts 24 Superstars from the 1989 WWF roster including larger than life legends Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man Randy Savage and Andre the Giant. It contains some of the tag team divisions finest like Bret Hart and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, The Hart Foundation; Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty, The Rockers; and Ax and Smash, Demolition. It contains some of the most colorful characters of that era: The American Dream, Dusty Rhodes, Jake the Snake Roberts, Ravishing Rick Rude, Hacksaw Jim Duggan. Also, Brutus “the Barber” Beefcake is there for historical accuracy.
