Spiderbaby :pro wrestling and comic books

IMG_7930Comic books featuring wrestlers, both real pro wrestlers and made up pro wrestlers.
spiderbabyTerrance Griep, AKA Tommy “Spiderbaby” Saturday, is a comic book writer and pro wrestling champion. Seen in this photo he was at Springcon at the MN State Fair grounds this past May. Griep has comics he has written and a wrestling belt he has won on display. Now both of those worlds will collide in the printed form as Griep will write his wrestling alter ego into a comic book story for Heroic Publishing’s Champions comic that should be on news stands now. You can pick up a copy and get it autographed this Saturday as Griep/Spiderbaby will be making two appearances.
In full wrestling regalia, SpiderBaby will be signing copies of his own comic book debut, the aptly-titled CHAMPIONS #55: College of Comic Book Knowledge, 3145 Hennepin Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN, 06.09.12, 12p-5p.
* And how does a wrestler cap off his appearance in a title called CHAMPIONS? By winning a championship, of course! SpiderBaby v. "The Egotistical" Robbie Thunder for the IWI United States Championship, 287 Maria Ave., St. Paul, MN, 06.09..12, 7:30p.

This Champions comic also marks the first time that a photo of mine has appeared in a comic book.
