NXT became WWE’s third global brand. Wrestlers joining NXT became today’s biggest stars. This was the launching pad to Seth Rollins, Charlotte Flair, Braun Strowman, Alexa Bliss and many more!
4) The Writing!
Writer Dennis Hopeless does a great job introducing his many characters. Hopeless portrays Dusty Rhodes as the omniscient narrator who occasionally breaks the fourth wall and jumps into the wrestling ring, Notice how letterer Jim Campbell captures the improvisational takes behind Rhodes’ all-knowing monologues .
3) The Artwork!
A style all its own, artist Jake Elphick delivers a surreal and trippy perspective of Dusty Rhodes’s journey into NXT. The pages that really stand out to me are the panels featuring Paige. Through crooked angles and extreme closeups, Paige takes the punches as she fights back against Alicia Fox.
2) The Colors!
Colorist Doug Garbark has a vivid palette for each section. The blue tones stand out in Dusty Rhodes’ opening pages. The green hues take hold of the page when Bray Wyatt shows up.
1) A Fun Read!
