When I published the inaugural issue of Strength Monsters last year (2014) I wrote on the cover “The Official Catch Wrestling Comic Book.” Not long after that a friend of mine wanted to know who deemed my comic book to be the “Official Comic Book of Catch Wrestling.” My answer was the Pro Wrestling Comic Book Association of course.
What is the Pro Wrestling Comic Book Association you might wonder? Well it’s actually a fictitious organization I made up to certify my comic book as being official. In fact I am the only member of this organization, which doesn’t actually exist, and when I held a meeting with myself everyone voted unanimously to make my comic book the “Official Comic Book of Catch Wrestling.”
I know this sounds ridiculous but it's actually the way things work. In fact A.W.A.’s (American Wrestling Association) All Star Wrestling Publication was approved by the Wrestling Writers Association of America. In fact it was so official it even bore this seal of approval.
Earlier this year I created this Banner to display when tabling at conventions and other events.
A very painstaking process as I hand lettered the logo and completely miss spelled Strength in the process.
Fortunately due to the miracle of Photoshop I was able to correct the issue but not until after burning through $50.00 (printing up a misspelled banner). A steep price to pay when you’re trying to build a comic book empire on budget of zero.
With closer examination you will notice I planted this little easter egg for anyone with a perceptive mind to find on the banner. It is a parody of the American Wrestling Association's crest and the the Wrestling Writers Association of America.
To this day my Strength Monsters Banner is the ONLY place I have ever published the crest of the Pro Wrestling Comic Book Association. That is until last week when I announced anyone who backs my comic book on Kickstarter at the $3 level or higher will receive this sticker of the Pro Wrestling Comic Book Association. AS LONG AS I MAKE THE FUNDING GOAL.
This is one example of the many hidden easter eggs and other gems of obscure and more or less completely worthless knowledge I have embedded within my comic books. The link to my Kickstarter is; http://kck.st/1O4Ersu
