In a celebration of comics, Short Run and more, this week sees the release of Max Riffner's new graphic novel, The Crippler's Son, chock full of wrestling action. When The Crippler comes to town for a wrestling match, James isn't awestruck, he's just trying to get by in medical school. Schooling that The Crippler has paid for. In this debut work from Max Riffner, two brothers attempt to reconnect despite a wrestling ring's worth of differences. We guarantee you'll stay around until the final round. Much like Richard Sala's Violenzia, this book is a digital exclusive from Fantagraphics and comiXology and is only $9.99.
And for the other worldly delights, check out Wallace "Wally" Wood's Cannon. Originally created for the troops in a military forces newspaper called Overseas Weekly, Cannon appeared every week for two and a half years uncensored by commercial editorial restrictions. Wood pulls out all the stops – producing a thrilling and salacious Cold War spy serial run amok with brutal violence and titillating sex all in an effort to boost morale and support our troops! If you're in the mood for explosions, sex, sexplosions, gunplay, naked catfights, double-crossing, intrigue, triple-crossing, Hitler, nihilistic lovemaking, and quadruple-crossing…did we mention naked women? This is the book for you. 300 bone-crushingly awesome pages for only $27.99.
