Queen of the Ring: Wrestling Drawings by Jaime Hernandez

(W) Jaime Hernandez (A) Jaime Hernandez
In Shops: Aug 04, 2021
SRP: $24.99

For the past 40 years, Jaime Hernandez has been privately amassing a body of work that no one else has seen. Until now. This parallel universe to his Love & Rockets world is set in the heyday of 1960s and ’70s women’s wrestling with an entirely new, original cast of characters who have aged and evolved. This book spotlights the women who are often ignored in pro-wrestling in 125 full-color illustrations: pin-ups, action shots, fake wrestling magazine covers, echoing the lucha libre magazines of the 1960s. Hernandez also discusses the work in an interview with fellow cartoonist Katie Skelly.

Fantagraphics to Publish Queen of the Ring: Wrestling Drawings by Jaime Hernandez

Queen of the Ring: Wrestling Drawings

For the past four decades, Jaime Hernandez has been creating some of the most beloved graphic novels of all time. He’s been honored as a member of the Will Eisner Hall of Fame, and he’s received the prestigious PEN Award, an L.A. Times Book Prize, and numerous Harvey, Ignatz, and Eisner Awards. But what does the lifelong Angeleno do to relax? He draws ― and, for more than forty years, he has been drawing and privately amassing a body of work that no one else has seen. Until now.

This August, Fantagraphics will publish Queen of the Ring: Wrestling Drawings By Jaime Hernandez, featuring 125 never-before-published illustrations that celebrate the women who are often ignored in pro wrestling. Through a series of pin-up pages, action shots, and fake wrestling magazine covers, Hernandez introduces an all new cast of fictional characters: the beautiful and brutal Bettie Rey; the I.F.W. Pacific Women’s Champion ― a.k.a. Golden Girl; former champions Pantera Negra and Miss Kitty Perez; and many more― all presented in a large hardcover format that echoes the wrestling magazines of the 1960s and 70s. We celebrate their victories and witness their defeats. The years pass by, the women age, and new champions are crowned. As Hernandez says, “It’s my Love and Rockets world that’s not my Love and Rockets world.”

Queen of the Ring: Wrestling Drawings By Jaime Hernandez spotlights the heyday of 1960s and ’70s women’s wrestling and lucha libre and includes an interview with Hernadez and fellow cartoonist Katie Skelly, who edited the book. Fantagraphics will publish Queen of the Ring: Wrestling Drawings By Jaime Hernandez on August 3, 2021.
