About Jim Cornette Presents: Behind the Curtain – Real Pro Wrestling Stories
Pro wrestling’s secrets and greatest moments are immortalized in this graphic novel from legendary wrestling personality Jim Cornette!
An anthology of true stories, these insider tales will show the lengths that wrestlers went to uphold kayfabe–the old carny term for keeping secret the illusions of a rigged game, fight, or situation–as well as the noteworthy cultural, racial, and economic effects these events and characters have had on society. This is the graphic novel that old-school wrestling fans have been waiting for: a no-holds-barred representation of the moments that wrestling insiders couldn’t talk about for years!
Behind the Curtain – Real Pro Wrestling Stories presents three chapters of tales, personally curated by Jim Cornette and adapted by Brandon Easton and Denis Medri, the team behind the critically acclaimed Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven.
Featuring stories about Ric Flair, Jerry Lawler, Andy Kaufman, Sputnik Monroe, The Sheik, Junkyard Dog, the Fabulous Freebirds, the Midnight Express, Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, and more. Also includes Jim’s colorful Glossary of Pro Wrestling Terms, as well as photos and newspaper clippings from his personal archives!
