This Sunday, September 5, Squared Circle Comics is set to launch a 4-volume (300+ pages) set of collected, fully authorized pro wrestling comics under the banner, The Illustrated History of Pro Wrestling. This will be the most comprehensive collection of authorized, biographical wrestling comics ever created:
Volume 1 – Nikolai Volkoff
Volume 2 – The Killer Bees
Volume 3 – The Genius Lanny Poffo + Bobby Fulton & The Fantastics
Volume 4 – Rocky Johnson + Jake Hager + Sunny the California Girl
Each written by wrestling historian John Crowther, these stories are based on in-depth interviews and intimate conversations between the writer and the wrestlers.
Oversized (8″ x 10.88″) hardcover editions of these books will be available only via the Kickstarter campaign, as will signed, numbered Collector Boxes to hold the set!
The first 100 backers will receive a numbered bookplate autographed by writer John Crowther, cover artist Jonathan Grimm, and publisher/editor Kevin LaPorte.
