Wanna Wrestle? G.L.O.W. Spotlight - Tina Ferrari

The above image is that of one Lisa Moretti.  She is a very popular women's wrestler who got her start in an organization known as G.L.O.W.  Her ring name was Tina Ferrari.   She was a multiple champion for the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling organization but you may remember her best by her other persona that won her championships in the WWE known as Ivory.

Yes, Tina and Ivory are one in the same.  G.L.O.W. wrestlers do not get the respect they should have for setting the landscape to allow women's wrestling to be successful.  I just posted my review of the new Netflix series G.L.O.W. over and Somewhatnerdy,  To read it, please click here - G.L.O.W. Review .  I feel that it is about time that someone told the tale, sure the show maybe a work of fiction for the most part, but where it counts is all truth.  I mean, it was a struggle to get the women equal billing in wrestling, any fan knows that.  I am just glad that G.L.O.W. is finally getting recognized the way it should.  I do hope that in the next season, we see some of the regulars from the glory days featured in an episode or two.  Until then, enjoy this match of Tina Ferrari taking on Manna the Headhunter in this classic G.L.O.W. match.

R.I.P. Adam West

When I was a child,I was introduced to Adam West via the Batman series whenever I would visit family in Pittsburgh, PA.  Some of my favorite memories deal with Adam West's portrayal of the Caped Crusader.  Adam will truly be missed.  God Bless and may you Rest in Peace.

Star Trek/Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds

The following is a review of the successful crossover between DC Comics and IDW.  The reason I say it was successful is because this is actually the second time they crossed over.  I am talking of course about the Star Trek/Green Lantern cross over event Stranger Worlds.  If you have not read it yet, read on at your own risk...there are spoilers!

We began this journey with the first installment known as the Spectrum War (2015).  All the Lantern Corps were "transported" to another dimension by one of the Guardians.  While trapped in this dimension, they made friends with the Captain Kirk and those friends/foes of the Federation.  The story ended with all the Corps uniting to defeat Nekron and his dead lanterns.

Well, we pick up the story 6 months from their arrival in this weird, yet familiar dimension.  The only problem is, without the power batteries, all of the lanterns rings are running out of power.  So, Hal and the others find themselves trying to adapt to their new surroundings while looking for this dimension's OA as well as the other batteries.

Long story short, they discover a man-hunter which gives Hal hope that they can find OA, or at least this dimensions version of it.  Well, they are not the only ones looking for power.  Atrocitus is looking for a source of rage to fuel his red ring, unfortunately he found it in the likes of a "prison" that housed the one and only Kahn.  I say unfortunately because Atrocitus is no more after his altercation with Kahn.  The other lanterns discover what had occurred, but it was too late.

Fast forward a couple of issues and all the power batteries are found and an all out war breaks out,  The guardians of this dimension help Kirk achieve the power to wear the ring in which he uses it to take on Kahn and Sinestro.  All is won and the lanterns are looking forward to finding their way home.  Hal does however want to show Kirk a section of space that they need to explore.  A system with a RED sun.  Hmmm, could this be the next cross over event?

I only gave a "cliff notes version" of the story because I want you to pick this up for yourself to enjoy.  If you cannot find all 6 issues at a comic book store or eBay, make sure to pick up the trade when it is available.

I have been enjoying the cross over events with DC and IDW.  I hope that they continue.  I give Star Trek/Green Lantern: Stranger Worlds a solid 10 out of 10 stars.  The story was well written as well as drawn and was just a joy to read all together.

Until next time, get your READ on and unleash your inner NERD!
