Here are 5 reasons why you should read WWE Wrestlemania 2019 Special #1:

5) Pain & Destruction!

In an interview with Previews, Chris Rosa, Editor of BOOM! Studios, teases “Pain and destruction reign in this look at the larger-than-life match between Undertaker and Kane at WrestleMania 14. But that’s just a glimpse of the excitement fans can expect from the array of stories presented in WWE WRESTLEMANIA 2019 SPECIAL #1.”

4) My Favorite Pick!

My favorite tale in the collection is Andrew Stott and Andy Belanger’s “The Destruction of Brothers.” Kane and Undertaker are incredibly depicted as terrifying giants in Belanger’s towering illustrations. Aided by Serge Lapointe’s lettering, Stott makes great uses of flashbacks; the dialogue echoes moments from the past. Colorist Lee Loughridge adds eye-popping blue tones through the smoke. 

3) The Best One!

As a Shawn Michaels fan, I absolutely loved The Heartbreak Kid’s unforgettable match against Ric Flair in Ryan Ferrier and Kendall Goode’s “I’m Sorry. I Love You.” Recapturing the live event, Goode perfectly depicts the anguish and exhaustion behind Michaels’ expressions. Jim Campbell’s letters carry the emotional toll of being that wrestler who has to retire The Nature Boy. 

2) The Awesome Moments!

As a fan of the WWE comics, I loved seeing artist Serg Acuña and colorist Doug Garbark reunited in Lan Pitts’ “King Without A Crown.” The short explores Shinsuke Nakamura’s mental battles before physically entering the wrestling match. Hyeonjin Kim illustrates the no-holds-barred actionfest between Asuka and Charlotte Fair in writer Bill Haystack and colorist Wesllei Manoel’s “Queen Vs. Empress.”

1) A Truly Epic Read!
