Kyle O'Reilly is in the midst of reading a comic book classic.
Appearing on My Mom's Basement with Robbie Fox, the NXT Superstar showed off his geekier side by talking about his love for the paranormal, UFOs, and comic books, among other things. As for what he is currently reading, O'Reilly said the following:
"I'm currently reading Neil Gaiman's The Sandman series, and it is phenomenal. The storytelling is so heavy and so deep and thought out and it's really blowing my mind. I'm really into comic books and you know, not necessarily superheroes, I love superheroes, but just the medium of comic books used to tell a story is so cool. Graphic novels and this that and the other. Novels in general. I really love fictional narratives, things like that. We're all geeky in our own ways, right?"
O'Reilly continued to offer up a suggestion of his own, Grant Morrison's The Invisibles. Among his countless hits, the Scottish writer has also penned Arkham Asylum, Animal Man, and All-Star Superman (just to name a few).
"Another one, similar to the whole paranormal thing is, I don't know if you're familiar with Grant Morrison's The Invisibles?," said O'Reilly. "The Invisibles is really cool. You should check that out. It's kind of like these sort of underground superheroes but they're going against these archons and the underground bases of aliens. Stuff like that. It's kind of all the cool fun things we were just talking about but in a storytelling comic book. The Invisible is pretty sweet too, you should check it out."
Up next for O'Reilly inside the ring is a match with Adam Cole at NXT's Great American Bash on Tuesday, July 6, 2021. Fightful will have live coverage of the event on that day beginning at 5 p.m. PST.
