July Feature #3: Apocalypse... Al?

Kevin Featured Comics • Jul 13, 2021

 

When growing up, there were a few things that I considered hobbies. Collecting comic books and baseball cards were two of them, playing baseball and basketball another pair, and then there was watching wrestling. My friends and I made a ritual of watching WCW and WWE (they were known as WWF back then) every time it was on TV. One of my favorites was none other than Al Snow. He was a little bit of crazy coupled with a batch of hilarious, and was a pretty good wrestler to boot.

So when I started to think of a theme for today's feature, Broken Icon Comics made is super easy. Take a pinch of digital comics, a dash of Al Snow (and Head!), then toss in the apocalypse and we've got a recipe for awesome.

These five comics prove that there are plenty of ways to imagine post-apocalyptic life. What's your favorite setting? Let us know in the comments!
