This weekend is completely awesome for wrestling fans with the WWE Network. On Saturday we have the next incredible NXT event – NXT: BROOKLYN! Then, as if that wasn’t big enough, the next night is one of the “big four” WWE events, SUMMER SLAM! Since Saturday is my wife’s birthday, I won’t be live-tweeting the NXT show, but you can follow me Sunday on Twitter as I chat about Summer Slam! In the meantime, however, you can check out my thoughts on both shows!

I am really excited to announce that the “pilot” issue of EL GUAPO, AGENT OF D.U.M.P. is now available on Comixology! El Guapo is a character that I’ve wanted to write for a really long time now and I used this short story as a “proof of concept”—it is a simple and direct introduction to the concepts and characters of the universe including the titular hero, his partners, and his rivals. I am really excited to have artist Sean Lewis on board as I think he brings a ton of energy and funky style to the story.
Hector Alvarez—Agent El Guapo—was the world’s foremost superspy for the world peacekeeping organization R.U.S.H. … until he was betrayed by one of his own. Now horribly scarred, El Guapo hides his face under a mask and has been demoted to the bizarre Department for Unusual Menace Protection (D.U.M.P.) where he will tangle with the weirdest threats known to mankind. Gone is his jet-setting, glamorous lifestyle, replaced now with vampires, chupacabras, and in the case of this pilot issue mad scientists and Nazi grizzly bears.
If the response to this first issue is positive, Sean and I are committed to do more stories featuring these characters in the future. I really want to get into El Guapo’s battles against his nemeses in the criminal organization The Anchor and his hunt for the R.U.S.H. agents that betrayed him. You can help bring these bizarre semi-comedic adventures to life by picking up the first issue today, exclusively on Comixology!

After the whirlwind six weeks of pay-per-views in May and June, we had a nice break before this month’s Battleground event! Has the space between shows allowed for better build-up? With SummerSlam on the horizon, how will this event set up the next “big” show? Hit the jump for my predictions and, as always, check me out on Twitter while I live Tweet the show!

I am excited to announce that I will be making my triumphant return to the Quad Cities on July 19th for the annual QC Planet Comic Con hosted by Mellow Blue Planet Comics!

I am taking a limited number of pre-show commissions, prices for which are listed below. Hit me up if you are interested!

I had a lot of fun reviewing the Loot Crate boxes before I cancelled my subscription in favor of the Marvel Collector Corps, so it only seems logical that I would start to review this box instead! I didn't have a chance to review the previous box, themed on Avengers: Age of Ultron, but I did receive the second box this past week. With the theme of Ant-Man, how does this box fare? And, perhaps more importantly, how psyched does it make me for the upcoming movie? Hit the jump to find out!

On paper, Elimination Chamber had the potential to be one of the most exciting shows of the year, but the execution was super uneven. A strong main event and the amazing Owens/Cena match carried the show, but overall I felt really underwhelmed. With another short build-up for this event, how will Money in the Bank turn out? Hit the jump below to check out my picks and follow me on Twitter as I live-tweet the show!
