RINGSIDE is an ongoing series set within the world of professional wrestling, written by JOE KEATINGE (SHUTTER, GLORY, TECH JACKET) and drawn by acclaimed illustrator NICK BARBER, combining the ensemble drama of THE WALKING DEAD with interconnected rotating perspectives akin to The Wire. Each issue will explore the relationship between art and industry from the view of the wrestlers themselves, the creatives they work with, the suits in charge and the fans cheering them all on.

But that’s just the beginning.

The real violence is outside the ring.

  1. Thing about the Marvels sidelining of X-Men: These kind of huge corporations want to have all the money, or none of it. Its how they operate. I’ve seen it happening with other companies, mainly in video game business. Its petty and bad PR, but lets be serious, they couldn’t care less as long as it doesn’t hurt their profit in big picture. People have emotional attachment to characters they have, but everyone should remember that they are not your friends, they do everything in their power to make money, nothing more.
