Exclusive Preview | ‘WWE: Wrestlemania 2017 Special’
In just over a week, the showcase of the immortals will return. WrestleMania 33 will take place on Sunday, April 2, but Boom! Studios isn’t going to make you wait that long for some wrestling action! Next week, Boom! is assembling five creative teams for the WWE: WrestleMania 2017 Special, which offers an even deeper glimpse at some of WrestleMania’s greatest moments as fictionalized by the comic book creators.
CraveOnline is proud to exclusively premiere pages from Dennis Hopeless and Dan Mora’s “The Long Con,” a story that catches up with Triple H circa WrestleMania X8. At the time, Triple H had recently recovered from an injury that forced him to sit out of the Invasion storyline. And in these pages, you’ll see Triple H in the unusual position of underdog as he struggles to reclaim his place on top of the card and defeat Chris Jericho for the WWE Championship.
