Interview With Michael Kingston: Creator Of Headlocked

Michael Kingston is a lifelong comic book and wrestling fan. In the past, various writers have attempted to create comics that mixed the two genres, but failed in spectacular fashion. In Headlocked: The Last Territory, though, Kingston creates a realistic hero in Mike Hartman who we follow on a journey in the unforgiving business. Filled with emotion and a clear passion from its writer, Headlocked is the most realistic portrayal of wrestling in the graphic novel form to date.

For his upcoming sequel Headlocked: The Last Territory Vol. 2, we follow the continuation of Hartman’s story. Kingston has taken to Kickstarter once more to raise the funds necessary to produce the book. Teaming up with him again is wrestling legend Jerry Lawler who will be providing the cover artwork. Also joining on the project in the role of guest creators are Booker T, Rob Van Dam, A.J. Styles, John Morrison,

WWE.com

If you were to take a poll of WWE Universe members that still watch ‘WWE Superstars’ on a regular basis, the results would report back as minimal. Airing exclusively on WWE Network every Thursday night, ‘Superstars’ is known as home to WWE’s biggest jobbers. From Big E to Zack Ryder to Titus O’Neil, many of the Superstars you don’t see on Raw are often appearing on ‘Superstars’ each week, competing in countless matches against each other that at the end of the day mean virtually nothing. It’s still a mystery to many at this point why the show is still around since is essentially serves no purpose in that no storylines are ever furthered and notable names very rarely make appearances on the program.

However, it didn’t always used to be this way. WWE took the show quite seriously when it was initially

12 WWE Stars Who Got Lost In The Mix

WWE.com

This is a look at former WWE talent who never quite got the exposure or opportunity. Some were the victim of timing, while others just floundered as another face in a crowded roster. Despite working for the company for several years, most of their appearances were on the C-level shows (programs such as International Heat, Jakked or WWE Superstars).

They may be gone and to many, they were forgotten. For every Undertaker, there’s a Braden Walker. Some went on to stardom in other companies while many just faded away. It’s a tough business.

CBS Films Hire Screenwriter for ‘The Expats’; Scott Rosenberg Rewriting Michael Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain’

Taking a bad reputation and making amends, CBS Films has been shaping up bit by bit these past few months by putting out more respectable material — The Woman in Black, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, and the forthcoming, Coen brothers-scripted Gambit among them. Possibly continuing this trend is The Expats, a film version of Chris Pavone‘s thriller that, according to THR, has landed its screenwriter.

The person for this job is Alex Holmes (House of Saddam), who will be scripting a tale centering on “a wife and mother who after moving with her family from Washington, DC to Luxembourg discovers intrigue around her husband’s work in cyber-security and another newly arrived American couple who may not be what they seem. As she begins to dig into these mysteries while traveling around Europe, the truth threatens to drag her own CIA past into the open.”
