HYPE AND PREVIEW: Joe Palooka #1

joepalooka_01-pr 00001.jpg

The venerable comics strip character Joe Palooka has been remade into a modern day MMA fighter in JOE PALOOKA #1 on sale today from IDW and here’s an exclusive preview. The comic already has support from the UFC and other MMA fans—as we’ve pointed out several times, MMA and comics are a natural combo, with many of the fighters big comics readers, and comics well suited to showing…well, fights.

Joe Palooka # 1 (of 6)
Mike Bullock & Matt Triano (w) • Fernando Peniche (a) • Jace McTier (c)

The legendary Joe Palooka name returns in this all-new version, as Joe fights for his freedom and for his life around the world. Set in the violent and dangerous world of top- tier mixed martial arts, this series will get you in its grip and not let go until you tap out.  Accused of a murder he didn’t commit, Nick Davis flees a police manhunt, picks up the name Joe Palooka in a Tijuana tough-man contest and then travels the world seeking to clear his name while making a name for himself at the same time.
