“Funny, smart, irreverent.” — Scott Snyder (Batman, Superman Unchained, American Vampire, The Wake)
Announced in 2013, the original graphic novel from co-writers Chris Sims and Chad Bowers and artist Scott Kowalchuk has been stirring up excitement with its thrilling take on the classic sports redemption story.
Disgraced and booted from professional football following a scandal, promising superstar Chuck Fairlane has resigned himself to a quiet yet fulfilling life of coaching on the high school gridiron. But when a series of increasingly malevolent mascots begin attacking him out of nowhere, he sets out on a one-man war to restore his integrity, unmask the source at the center of the conspiracy, and destroy a few sports bars along the way; all of this culminating in a battle royale that simply must be seen to be believed.
DOWN SET FIGHT #1 is available NOW from ComiXology.
