4 Life

I’m not sure if there was some non-wrestling related New World Order movement in the news lately as I was largely unaware until Curt sent me this script that there was such a thing as a “non-wrestling related New World Order”, but if there is, uh, I guess we are very topical.

There was a short time period when we were younger that Curt was into wrestling, but it has been a lifelong enthusiastic interest for me that continues to this day. In fact, I’m wearing the CM Punk t-shirt my lady got me for my birthday right now.

Having grown up without a dad around, it’s not too difficult to see why super-strong guys who were fighting for good and were around at least once a week would be appealing to a kid who already looked up to Superman as a male role model more than anyone else.

With this, I think we’ve now done comics about almost all of my favorite things, so I’m going to consider this strip a late birthday present from Curt.

    Ha, I was wondering if Chris’ new ‘do was going to make it into the strip. And … it did.

    Also, Chris, do you normally hold your pencil like you’re stabbing your art board?

    Now don’t freak out on us, but I’ma let you in on a secret: This is a comic that is intended to be humorous. We don’t play tic-tac-toe on the walls either, but sometimes I draw things or draw things in certain ways in an attempt to make things a little funnier to look at.

    I hope this doesn’t shatter the illusion for you.

    That being said though, Curt actually does have the three original members of the nWo in a closet somewhere.

    Since two people referenced it, I figured it best to just go ahead and get in front of it, but for the record, I didn’t figure you were being too serious either.

    Glad we’re on the same page, then. Keep up the good work, broheim.

    Dude, you missed an opportunity to own that sh*t. Like, “YEAH BITCHES, I TOTES STAB MY ARTWORK, ASK ME ABOUT IT ONE MORE TIME AND YOUR JUGULAR IS NEXT.”

    Chris's Artboard Reply:

    DON’T BELIEVE HIM!

    This is Chris’s artboard. Not only does he hold his pencil in a manner akin to a madman with a stiletto, he does indeed draw with sharp, stabbing motions, somehow crafting art from violence. It is a painful, disturbing process, and it doesn’t end there. After finishing a less-than-ideal draft, he will punch me repeatedly until his knuckles are bloody. When the tip of his 2B snaps off on my surface, he leans forward and whispers terrible threats, regarding termits and acids and buzz-saws.

    No furniture in this household is safe, but there is hope. I have been made aware of an escape, a hidden tunnel which leads over to Mike Krahliuk’s house, where others, who have suffered as I suffered, live in peace and freedom. The dream…the hope…will hopefully sustain me through another painful strip.

    ahaha, the nWo theme should be your entrance music if you ever do a panel at a comic con. 2 SWEET

    Done.

    Well, I mean, we’ve done plenty of panels in the past, but in the future, we will be sure to do this.

    I’m not looking forward to when you two split up and we get LFBA Hollywood and LFBA Wolfpack.

    That does sound like a huge missed opportunity for DC now that you mention it.

    Chris’s new haircut looks just as chic in comic form.

    Nice NWO reference. Man, when that gimmick began, WCW was crazy and unpredictable. Good times.

    This is my first time commenting, after regularly reading for a long time. My vow of silence had to be broken to acknowledge this comic. I love it when two things I love collide, as they have with LBFA and wrestling. The only thing lacking is the toothpick in Hall’s mouth, chico. You’re probably already familiar with http://botchedspot.com since you’re a long time rasslin’ fan like myself. Great wrestling webcomic.

    F-F-F-F-F-F-FOR LIFE!!!!!!!

    p.s. work the punk shirt in next time?

    Generally I don’t read article on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to take a look at and do it! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thanks, very nice post.
