<b>From the host of the critically acclaimed pro wrestling podcast <i>Straight Shoot</i>, this graphic novel history of wrestling features the key grapplers, matches, and promotions that shaped this beloved sport and form of entertainment.</b><br /><br />As a pop culture phenomenon, professional wrestling--with its heroic babyfaces and villainous heels performing suplexes and powerbombs in pursuit of championship gold--has conquered audiences in the United States and around the world. Now, writer/podcaster Aubrey Sitterson and illustrator Chris Moreno form a graphic novel tag team to present wrestling's complete illustrated history. Featuring legendary wrestlers like Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, and The Rock, and modern-day favorites like John Cena, Kenny Omega, and Sasha Banks, the book covers wrestling's progress from the carnival days of the Gold Dust Trio to the dominance of the WWF/WWE to today's diverse independent wrestling scene, and it spotlights wrestling's reach into Mexico/Puerto Rico (lucha libre), the U.K. (all-in), and Japan (puroresu).

<h1><strong>IT ALL STARTED WITH A TOWEL DROP.</strong></h1><p><em>"...that’s one of the reasons I became a sports reporter—so I could run into the men’s locker rooms and see them walk around in the buff. I’m not kidding. I accidentally walked into the boy's locker room in my freshman year in high school to see all the seniors naked. It was a defining moment in my life. It was then I decided what I’d do for a living. My calling." </em></p><h3>Lexi Driver is EAN's top sportscaster, but when she makes the mistake of humiliating quarterback Brett Brock on national television, Brett Brock demands an apology.  Lexi would apologize...if she could find something to feel sorry about.</h3><hr /><p>Touchdown is a standalone romance with an HEA, no cheating, and no cliffhanger.
