Super Pro K.O. Vol.1 is awesome!

I JUST finished this manga-style digest last night and it is awesome - and I *HATE* faux manga art. But Jarrett Williams nails the concept and energy of pro wrestling perfectly. Along with The Promotion, Super Pro K.O. is possibly the best wrestling-related comic I've ever read.

I'll be talking about this comic in detail in an upcoming podcast.

BELOW is the official guff. Buy it!

Volume 1 - 1st printing. Story and art by Jarrett Williams. Joe Somiano is late to his first match in Super Pro K.O.!, and has no clue what awaits him in the rowdy ring! A seasoned sumo wrestler, a jolly luchador, a flambouyant tag team, suspicious executives, and a drunken Heavyweight Champion all stand between him and the superstardom that is his destiny. If the huge egos, clothesline take-downs, and broken chairs across the head don't squash Joe's dreams, he may just come out on top. But if he's going to take home the champion's belt, he'll need to bring his best moves against the likes of S.P.K.O.! stars Tomahawk Slamson, Yoko No-No, Mr. Awesomeness 2, and many more in this grand slamma jamma event of a graphic novel! Softcover, 5-in. x 7-in., 256 pages, B&W. Cover price $11.99.
