The dysfunctional cast of the GLORIOUS WRESTLING ALLIANCE are getting in a bus and going on tour! Features simmering tension, petty bickering, sub-par personal hygiene and wanton invasion of space and boundaries. Official stand-alone sequel status: no prior reading necessary for enjoyment!

A5, blue riso on white paper. Twenty-six pages of pure GWA comix, plus BONUS illustrations from Rob Marland and James Lawrence, along with a full four-page BACK-UP STRIP by Ioan Morris. What a time to be alive!

Available now at the store!


"Glorious Wrestling Alliance: Grappling Road is a strangely adorable look at life on the road with a delightfully weird roster of wrestlers ... Hicks manages to fit a startling amount of drama in 26 pages, but his bold, cartoonish style keeps the story light-hearted and fun." -Newsarama

"Glorious Wrestling Alliance: Grappling Road is an object lesson in pacing, characterisation, visual storytelling and plotting. For what could be viewed as an ostensibly throwaway concept there’s far more in terms of pathos and poignancy going on just beneath the surface than the obvious jokey set pieces and wrestling showmanship suggest on a first reading." -Broken Frontier
