Why Wrestling Comics?
Like any endeavor, professional wrestling, beneath all the bluster and spectacle, is built of people, real ones with real lives, real challenges, and real triumphs. The Genius Lanny Poffo delves behind the curtain of entertainment to reveal the full story of this charismatic, gifted athlete, even as it explores the wider world of pro wrestling from his perspective.
The Genius Lanny Poffo is the authorized biography of the WWF legend and brother of the Macho Man Randy Savage, Lanny Poffo! At various times wielding the monikers Leaping Lanny and The Genius, his story is revealed in personal interviews with wrestling historian and writer John Crowther (Nikolai, The Killer Bees, Hacksaw Jim Duggan). The entire series is expertly illustrated by Rando Dixon and Alan McMillian, with colors by Andrew Pate. This is a one-shot story with 31 pages.
Renowned for his trademark poetry disparaging opponents (and, perhaps, the local fanbase...), as well as his high-flying wrestling style (he was one of the first to unleash the Moonsault and Senton Bomb on opponents), Lanny Poffo's career of 20+ years sprang from the Poffo family of wrestlers, including his father Angelo and his brother Randy. In this comic, follow his path to the world of sports entertainment and experience the poetry in motion and in words that personified The Genius Lanny Poffo!
