A 60-page graphic novel covering some of Jim Cornette’s favourite stories is the latest wrestling project on Kickstarter:
Jim Cornette Presents: Behind the Curtain – Real Pro Wrestling Stories is a historical look at some of the most impactful behind-the-scenes moments in pro wrestling history, presented through the eyes of legendary wrestling personality Jim Cornette. A true-story style anthology, these ‘insider’ tales will show the lengths that wrestlers went to uphold ‘kayfabe’ (the old carny term for the presentation of legitimate conflict) as well as the noteworthy cultural, racial & economic impact these events and characters had on society. This is the graphic novel that old school wrestling fans have been waiting their entire lives for: a no holds barred graphic representation of the moments that wrestling insiders couldn’t talk about for years.
The book — which has already met its funding target — will be written and illustrated by Brandon Easton and Denis Medri, the team behind Andre The Giant: Closer to Heaven.by
