Hey Rob and all,
The owner of Image Collections - in Streetsville, Ontario, Canada - has asked me to put together a comic book based around the world of professional wrestling. I think it'd be pretty cool to have Sabu and RVD himself in an issue [or possibly as recurring characters..] - I'm thinking that it'd be fair for various independent organizations, and cool workers to be featured in different issues. It's a great way for people who don't necessarily watch wrestling to learn a bit more about it, and learn to appreciate the great sport that it is.
I'm a post-secondary English literature, philosophy and film studies student. I have also completed approximately two and a half of professional wrestling training [I posted a match that I had years back in a thread in the general section. There's the link to it:
Image Collections has some very talented artists [they're all pretty cool], I have some experience writing and wrestling [and am pretty decently well read]. I know how much RVD loves comics and wrestling, so it was pretty easy to decide whether or not I should post this evolving idea here in the first place.
If anyone has any input, ideas, or even support, it would be greatly appreciated. I like to have projects to keep me busy, and as I'm getting a little bit older, I'm starting to take them a little bit more seriously [I guess that's the idea of legacy, or something..].
Even if Rob [Van Dam] cannot be involved [in whatever way Rob wants to be involved, if he does- due to contract stipulations with Impact Wrestling, it may be difficult? - I would still like to read his input, and maybe he can get Sabu on board: an issue featured on Sabu would be a great way to pay respect to the hardcore legend, and it would definitely work well with the target audience, ie, comic book fans.
Hope to read something.
