Read Mad Cave’s Over the Ropes #1 for FREE

Mad Cave Studios and Graphic Policy have teamed up so you can read some of the comic publisher’s first issues for free!

With the fourth issue out this week, we’re kicking it off with Over the Ropes #1!

Step Over the Ropes and into 1990s wrestling. Set in a fictional world, Over the Ropes dives into sports entertainment’s biggest era. A young high-flyer named Jason Lynn goes off-script in a match to win the world title and sets the southern territory on fire as the face-painted wrestler, Phoenix. Jason’s battles between the ropes are only outperformed by his struggles outside the ring. First dates. Crooked promoters. Cage matches. Factions and families. No matter what problems smack him with a steel chair, Jason lives by his catchphrase: I. Will. Rise.

Over the Ropes is written by Jay Sandlin, with art by Antonello Cosentino, colors by Francesco Segala, and lettering by Justin Birch.

Mad Cave Studios Releases an Early Look at Over the Ropes

Writer Jay Sandlin and artist Antonello Cosentino collaborate to explore the world of indie wrestling in the golden age of the sport, the 90’s. Over the Ropes is an underdog story of staying true to oneself in a world where ring personas often time bleed into reality. Sandlin and Cosentino craft a tale in which finding one’s true self may mean crafting a larger than life image inside of the ring.
