Writer Joseph Keatinge (SHUTTER) and debut artist Nick Barber will bring their ongoing noir drama, RINGSIDE, into it's explosive second act.
Previously in RINGSIDE VOL. 1, fans explored the crossroads of art,
industry, and identity within the world of professional wrestling through a literary lens and the rotating perspectives of the wrestlers themselves, the creatives they work with, the suits in charge, and the fans cheering them all on.
Comic Bastards praised the series as having "a quiet poetry to the whole thing, like a Steinbeck novel, with frog splashes." In RINGSIDE VOL. 2, former professional wrestler Danny Knossos has made a Faustian pact to save the life of his beloved, but as his new arrangement crosses over with his past life in the ring, he's in for more than he ever bargained for. Danny's got what he's always wanted, but now the true work begins...and he may not make it to the end.

Better than Volume 1 – makes a bit more sense This comic collection deals with the world of wrestling and the fate of washed-up wrestlers at the end of their working life. It also looks at the underside of the profession as the main character, Danny, gets involved with drug dealers. Less disorganised than Volume 1 and with far fewer flashbacks, it makes better reading although I'm sure that the illustrations could be clearer. I'll read Volume 3 and hope that it continues to improve.
