You have no idea how much ridiculous pantomime was involved in figuring out how the “turn out, headbutt” counter of that arm hold would work. My initial impression of “just like the normal turn out counter, but with a headbutt” was sorely mistaken upon looking at some video clips and realizing that the turn ever only resulted in the attacker and victim changing roles, but with the same hold.
A quick thank you to everyone who stopped by the Renegade Arts Entertainment booth at Edmonton Expo, as you guys are the ones who make shows like that successful. And oh man, was that show successful. If you didn’t get a chance to pick up my new book, “Redcoats-ish: Jeff Martin’s War of 1812,” hit the link on the sidebar and grab yourself a copy directly from Renegade!
My next appearance will be in Winnipeg for Central Canada Comic Con, and there may be some wrestling-related fun involved.
Next Week: The video game camera angle returns, and I try to draw another thing that happens in every match that turns out to be difficult to translate to comics.
