    The extra story here, “The Brawler and the Beast,” makes me want a full ongoing (or at least a short run) penned by Tini Howard. Depicting how Finn, a wrestler traveling alone through the Irish countryside late at night, gains the power of the Demon King Blor he so often shows off in the ring. Im not entirely sure if it was meant to but I definitely read the whole thing to the tune of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” and it was great. It may have only been two pages, but Im definitely craving more with this entire creative team, including the artists of the main issue. Read Full Review

    This is a series with a difference. WWE superstars are larger than life on television, and comic books take things one step further. The tale of Seth Rollins continues to impress and is a must-have for WWE fans and general readers alike. Read Full Review

    Hopeless does an excellent job filling in the gaps of Rollins' television absence with an authentic look the slow spiral of a long recovery can take on someone. Read Full Review

    While the arc's new story direction feels a little out of left field, it's a welcome change of pace that deviates from what we saw on television when this arc's storyline played out on Raw, adding some needed suspense. Read Full Review

    Again, its probably worth pointing out that its fairly unlikely that this series is going to appeal to anyone other than existing WWE fans, as there isnt quite enough substance here to reel in new readers. That said, for those of us who are already familiar with the whole Seth Rollins saga, this adds a lot of interesting behind the scenes flavour to what was already a pretty interesting storyline. And while it definitely showcases both the good and bad side of licensed properties, this is still a hell of a lot of fun, and a highly recommended purchase for WWE-inclined comic book fans.

    WWE #3 may not be the most exciting issue of the new series to date, but it continues to prove that there is potential in wrestling comics. Not only does it give us some dramatic moments that mirror real life events, but the creative team couple this with a comical tone that allows it to stand out on its own. Read Full Review
