Superstar Wrestling Legend, The Nature Boy Ric Flair‘s comic series, Codename Ric Flair will be available in April 2023 from Scout Comics!
Ric Flair, the Rolex wearing, diamond ring wearing, wheelin’ dealin’, limousine ridin’ jet flyin’ son of a gun who is regarded by many as the greatest professional wrestler of all time, finally has his own comic series!
This brand-new original comic details his fact-or-fiction forays as an international superspy in the 1980s and 1990s. The series purports that Flair, who did in fact travel around the world for wrestling matches, was also a secret agent for the US government, using his persona as the ultimate wrestling heel as the perfect cover.
The first issue/mission “Magic Eightball” takes place in the late 1980’s. The comic was written by James Haick III, features art by Rafael Loureiro, color by Renato Pacheco and Yen Nitro, lettering by DC Hopkins, and edited by Andrea Lorenzo Molinari.
There will be three open order covers (pictured below) along with two ultra rare retailer incentive covers available upon launch. The rarest of them all will be a Metal Cover (to be revealed soon) by the amazing painter Dave Dorman! Stay tuned for more details as the release date gets closer!
