The Deathlyfe Tournament comes to a bloody conclusion – but when the dust settles, who will win? And can they bring back their loved one – or are there more revelations to come?
Daniel Warren Johnson’s Do A Powerbomb has been exceptionally good, in every single issue so far. Not only does this issue do a great job of showcasing the final battle of the Deathlyfe Tournament, but we also get extended flashbacks too, filling in some important backstory as everything wraps up.
Again, it must be stressed just how good the actual wrestling action is; there’s a real kineticism in the art that gives it a phenomenal visual feel and the storytelling has fantastic clarity too.
It’s chunky, hard hitting and crunchy action that just about leaps off the page.
It doesn’t require a knowledge of wrestling to enjoy Do A Powerbomb of course, though if you are a wrestling fan you’ll be absolutely captivated by the storyline – which adds to the in ring drama. That potent combination of potential real life drama (along with definitely real stuff kicking off) and combat in the ring is such a great recreation of the appeal of wrestling, though of course here the stakes feel so high for our characters; within the context of the story, it’s all real.
Importantly, the story of Do A Powerbomb has a tremendous amount of heart; it’s beautifully written and illustrated too.
The cliffhanger here is a bit of a jaw dropper; I can’t wait to get my hands on the final issue of the brilliant Do A Powerbomb – and when I do, I’ll be sure to share my thoughts with you!
