The Next Adventure!

The next adventure begins this summer! 

Get ready to go back to the dawn of the 21st century, where the Adonis & Family Circus Wrestling Spectacular in Floyd County, Iowa is about to kick off. As the company begins their trek through the Midwest, Mr. PEC-tacular Jessie Godderz, a modern day Adonis and mega-superstar, is brought on to take the company to new heights. There is only one problem: Al Snow and his horde of dwarves known as The Swarm.

When the great Mr. PEC-tacular, Jessie Godderz, is hired to be the new superstar attraction, he has no idea what he’ll be up against. It wasn’t competing companies, or even other wrestlers, but something far more unpredictable; Al Snow. Jessie soon finds out the whispers and legends fall far short of the truth. Al is not just crazy, he is something wholly unique. Jessie works hard to add his own special gravitas to the show, while Al Snow and The Swarm have something special in store for anyone who dare cross him or his new found talent.

Whether under the big-top, inside the ring, or among the other denizens of the circus, Al and Jessie provide a new adventure unlike any other. With characters that have to be seen to be believed, this journey into the Snowverse is sure to please current fans of the series, and the new fans we’ll bring into the craziness that is The Adventures of Al Snow and Head!

Joining wrestling legends, Al Snow and Head, is Mr. PEC-tacular Jessie Godderz. Jessie is a two-time Impact Wrestling Tag Champion, star of the CBS show Big Brother, and the longest reigning National Heavyweight Champion in the legendary OVW in Louisville, Ky.  

The book is written by Eric Watkins with art by Rob Dumo. (Robyn Hood, KCNH), colors by Nick Wentland (TMNT, GI Joe) and letters by Justin Birch (Miraculous, Birds of Prey).

Sneak peeks and more information coming soon!
