Nuclear suplex!

NIXON'S PALS: looks good. I just ordered it from Lone Star. Read all about this "old" graphic novel and more - including Chris Burnham's ultra-cool-looking new GN, Officer Downe - at http://www.comicsalliance.com/2010/05/10/officer-downe-joe-casey-chris-burnham.

Meanwhile, enjoy this wrestling-related question from the above interview:

CA: You worked with Joe Casey before on a graphic novel called Nixon's Pals (which was also gloriously ultraviolent, what with all the nuclear suplexes) about a guy who worked as a bail bondsman for super-villains. Is there any connection between the two?

Burnham: Not REALLY. There are a couple of Nixon's Pals characters that make cameos in Officer Downe, but unless you've read Nixon five times, you're probably not going to notice. They're really more about keeping me amused than serving any sort of narrative purpose. You definitely don't have to have read Nixon's Pals to understand what's going on.
