The Supercard

I thought something like this would be a a neat and sufficiently retro way of showing my wrestlers all together. Can YOU collect all ten WWF Superstars, including the ultra-rare wild card? It’s the cereal box treat that packs a punch!

I redid André the Giant to fit in with the adopted style of the series. I think ten seems an adequate point to call for the bell. Though, I’ve really not submitted – these outrageous characters have been such fun and I’m chuffed with them all, such that I can quite see me producing a second series of cards before long. I was keeping a list of potential portraits as I went along, and there are still many notable characters left over.

It has been nice to dust off another corner of my youth, coming to remember why I enjoyed it, likewise why I quite hastily fell out with it. A valuable exercise, and one which I do hope you enjoyed! Maybe more soon!

      Ooh yeah (!) Savage is definitely on the list. I can’t hear Pomp and Circumstance without wanting Macho Man and Elizabeth to burst through the curtain…
