Jerry Lawler serves as the play-by-play comment...
-- The life of Andre the Giant will be told in comic form as Lion Forge Comics has plans to release a graphic novel on the legendary wrestler.
The book is being written by Brandon Easton and will highlight the WWE Hall of Famer's life and legacy.
No release date has been announced for the graphic novel, but the company has released some artwork.

-- Writer Michael Kingston (Headlocked) has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the latest story, "The Last Territory".
He wrote: "One of the big themes in the book is the examination of wrestling as an art form. A lot of people have a lot of pre-conceived notions about wrestling and by making our character a theater major, as he learns the business, you can see it through the eyes of a performance artist. I think for people who give it an honest read, they might just come away with a new appreciation for wrestling."
The Kickstarter offers exclusive content from Jerry "The King" Lawler, Ken Anderson, Beth Phoenix, Sinn Bodhi, Rob Van Dam, Christopher Daniels, and Shane Helms. He is attempting to raise $16,000. As of this writing he is over halfway there with 42 days left. The content goes to those who donate $5 or more.
