– A new wrestling comic book, Ringside, is scheduled for release next week. The series from Image Comics is focusing on behind-the-scenes activity set in pro wrestling.
“The book is really about what happens outside of the ring,” said writer Joe Keatinge in an interview with AL.com. “It’s how this industry affects a number of lives and what people’s relationships are with it. There actually is not a lot of in-ring stuff at all throughout the whole series.

It’s more of a drama than anything else.”
