Devil's Ring

"Devil's Ring" from Big Daddy Danger #9 (DC, 2003) by Adam Pollina and Tyson McAdoo

My mom went to Mexico once, and the only thing I asked was that she brought back Mexican comics. Of the few she found remotely acceptable (i.e. non-pornographic), there was an issue of Blue Demon, nominally based on the exploits of a famous luchadore wrestler (second only to Santo). The comic was terrible (reviewed here), and Big Daddy Danger is what I would have wanted it to be like. Big goofy fun where a wrestler can antagonize Hell itself and get himself a bout in the underworld. The series only lasted 9 issues, and a development deal with Disney seems to have fallen through. I blame Jack Black for that one.
