If the positive drug test of Jon Jones that forced the UFC pay-per-view to move locations wasn’t one of the strangest things about UFC 232, it looks like they’ll be launching their first ever comic at this weekend’s event.
To celebrate their 25th anniversary, the UFC is launching Tales of UFC #1 exclusively for fans at UFC 232. The story brings the fighter that’s part of the UFC logo to life and is described as a tale of “action, adventure, and family.” The comic stars Mike and his daughter Maxine Mercury.
The comic is written by Dave Dwonch who has recently released such series as Infinite Seven, Cyrus Perkins and the Haunted Taxi Cab, and Double Jumpers with Action Lab. The comic features art by Jason Federhenn and color by Brad Simpson.
Dwonch landed the series through his agent at WME and pitched three projects to UFC. The comic has sci-fi elements but is “rooted in MMA.”
This comic is launching directly to UFC fans but it’s not the first comic to feature MMA. Heart, Joe Palooka, Cagehero, are examples of comic series featuring MMA. Former UFC fighter Rampage Jackson had a comic series published by Lion Forge. Also, UFC 181 featured a comics inspired poster done by Alex Sinclair, Howard Porter, and DC Comics. With the recent success of wrestling comics, we should be seeing a new wave of MMA inspired comics in the next year.
Double Jumpers: Full Circle Jerks follows up with Jason and his band of video game programmers, who swapped bodies with their in-game counterparts, the Dungeon Lords. At the end of the last volume, they unleashed the Dungeon Lord’s greatest villain, Pilfer the Goblin, into our world! Now, the gamers must team up with the Dungeon Lords to send Pilfer back to where he came from and defend our world from the end times!
Written by Dave Dwonch, with art by Sergio Rios, and color by Megan Huang with Geraldo Filho, the action is intense, but the fun just takes this story to another level.” It’s the perfect comic book for video game fans who want a good laugh at the antics of our heroes, while also enjoying a high stakes fantasy adventure set in two worlds: the fantastical video game world of the Dungeon Lords and our own world.
You can pre-order the 128 page book with the Diamond item code OCT181313. It will be in a comic book store near you on December 12th, 2018.

Comics creator Dave Dwonch has been a fan of Bryan Fuller for a LONG time. Since the debt of Fuller’s Dead Like Me in 2003, Dwonch has been fascinated with the meteoric rise and quick demise of Fuller’s creations. From Wonderfalls to Pushing Daisies to Hannibal, Bryan Fuller’s creations have been acclaimed by both critics and fans and garnered worldwide attention, only to be cancelled within three years. That’s where Dwonch comes in.
Mind Palace explores Fuller’s creations and the cancellation of his creations. It explores a grieving process that tucks his memories of his creations all into one place, his mind.
The Mind Palace is a place where Bryan has sequestered his creations away. He hasn’t forgotten them, just given them a new purpose as the caretakers of a bed and breakfast in the back of his brain, the “The Fuller House.” Imagine a world where Hannibal Lecter is the Executive Chef to Ned’s Pastry Chef, where actress Caroline Dhavernas’ Alana Bloom and Jaye Tyler exist together. It’s a recipe for madness.
Is being trapped in one place a good thing? Some of these characters will have been impacted by that.
Mind Palace launched on San Diego Comic Con Preview Night with the first complete chapter, and new pages are posted every Tuesday and Thursday. Dwonch and artist Santi Guillen have planned Season One to span an entire year and hope to continue into Season Two in mid-2019.
