Wanna Wrestle? My Interview with April Hunter (Preview)

The following passage is from my interview with the one and only April Hunter.

I know I have been absent lately, but there was a good reason.  Hell, I’ll even go on to say I had a great reason for my absence.  What is that reason you ask, well to get great interviews for you, our loyal readers of course.  I return with an interview with a legend in the industry of modeling/cosplay/wrestling/ and now comics as well.  I have an interview with the one and only April Hunter.  Old School wrestling fans will know her from her days in the nWo where as others will know her from her work with the TNA and independent circuit.  As stated earlier, she is also a well known model and cosplayer so odds are you have seen her at a con. Instead of me writing a summary of the interview, why don’t i just give you the interview already.  Enjoy!
DERF: Who are you and where are you from?
April: I’m a super heroine (and writer) from Philadelphia, which isn’t exactly glamorous, but it’ll have to do.
DERF: I have been a fan of yours since your debut as a nWo girl at WCW, hell maybe before that. How did the opportunity present itself for you to be a nWo girl?
April: Thank you! I like my fans, especially the long time ones. Very much appreciate that. WCW happened because of Playboy. I’d done some layouts for them and appeared in the Hardbodies issue that Kim Page was in. WCW decided to bring in some eye candy and thus, my wrestling career began on the arm of Big Poppa Pump. He’s actually a very decent human being.

Comic Review: Deadpool the Duck

What do you get when you cross Wade Wilson aka Deadpool, Howard the Duck, and a case of Space Rabies?  You get Deadpool the Duck, that's what. You want comedic writing, well this issue is slam full of it.

The issue starts off with Wade looking over a S.H.I.E.L.D. safe house as his home base of operations when he is given the task to take out a target.  Who is the target, we do not found out before the story shifts to Howard the Duck.

When we are introduced to Howard, he is driving around town questioning why is he here when out of the sky falls an alien pod right on his car, totally destroying his vehicle.  Just who is in the pod, why Guardian of the Galaxy Rocket that's who.  He has been infected by an unknown enemy with a batch of space rabies.  While Howard is fleeing for his life, Wade makes an entrance and tries to take the Raccoon down but to no avail.  Before you know it, Rocket attacks Wade while he is in Howard's presence by biting his arm.  Only problem is, he sinks his teeth into Wade's teleport watch which for some reason causes a dramatic side effect.  Now Wade and Howard are one.  How will this story end?  Who knows but issue #2 hits newsstands on January 18th.

Stuart Moore does Deadpool justice with his writing and the art of Jacopo Camagni adds life to the comics.  I gladly give issue #1 a 10 out of 10 rating and I truly cannot wait until issue #2.

Until next time, get your READ on!
