First he met Batman and now he’s meeting Dick Tracy, albeit under quite different circumstances. Jerry “The King” Lawler is a legendary star of pro wrestling, but is also a huge comic fan (and artist) so I’m sure that’s part of the reason he’s now appearing in the Dick Tracy comic strips.
Tracy is seeking some help from Lawler on a new case involving the former villain turned good guy, the Mole! Will Lawler lace up the boots (or pull off the strap?) to help Tracy bust some heads? I guess you’ll have to keep reading to find out. Lawler made his first appearance in the strip today… Here’s a few panels to give you an idea of the story so far!
The art on Lawler isn’t amazing, to be honest. There is something that definitely says “Lawler” but if I didn’t know it was supposed to be the King, I’m not sure I would have known. Lawler isn’t the first celebrity to appear in the panels of a comic book, but he is the King of Dick Tracy for now.
