Broken Icon Comics Launches New Series, The Ballad of Al Snow and Head, Featuring Former WWE Superstar, Al Snow.
Broken Icon Comics is thrilled to announce the release of The Ballad of Al Snow and Head. A comedic romp that takes us from the real world deep into the insanity of Al’s mind. The premier issue is set in a post-apocalyptic Louisville, KY, where Al’s misadventures lead him to underground societies, brutal Thunderdome-esque fighting rings, and the highest levels of government.
Al Snow is the hero that no one asked for, and just can’t seem to get rid of. A blend of action, comedy, and parody come together in a tale unlike any other.
Teaming up with Al presented a unique opportunity for us. A chance to make a comic book featuring a wrestler without resorting to a biographical or generic wrestling book. The goal was to take what was great about Al’s character, and tell stories in such a way only comics could do. Why limit the adventures through Al’s insanity to the ring, or even the real world?
We’re launching a Kickstarter on 04/22. This gives us a chance to get this book out to the most people the quickest. By selling directly to the fans, you get not only first dibs on the book (with a Kickstarter Exclusive option, no less,) but also first access to limited edition metal prints and autographs from the man himself.
We put together a killer team for this one, and can’t wait for everyone to see how it turned out. The book is written by Eric Watkins with art by Tommy Patterson (Game of Thrones, Farscape), colors by Rob Dumo (Robyn Hood, KCNA) and Nick Wentland (TMNT, GI Joe), and letters by Justin Birch (Miraculous, Birds of Prey).
“To say that I am excited and honored to have this comic book being published, based on myself and HEAD, would be an understatement. I will always be grateful for my professional wrestling career and my time being a WWE superstar. It has continued to give me amazing opportunities such as this.” -Al Snow
