From Frank Gotch and Ed "Strangler" Lewis to Giant Baba, El Santo, and Vince McMahon's modern-day WWE, the history of pro wrestling is colorful, detailed, and always fascinating. So it makes a surprising amount of sense that The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling would be the best way to tell the story of the squared circle. Co-creators Aubrey Sitterson and Chris Moreno join us to discuss melding the worlds of comics and wrestling literature, including how they condensed years of wrestling history into 170 beautiful pages.
