The Cold Wrestling War PDF

Hey there, guys!  I finally finished work on and just published the definitive PDF edition of The Cold Wrestling War!  This story, as you likely already know, is a pro wrestling tale with a bit of an alternate history angle and lots of liberties taken with the past.  The story follows Ryan Dermot and Alexi Volkov who represent their nations in a pro wrestling battle to decide the Cold War once and for all.



I have a bit of a surprise regarding this one.  Near the end of my adaptation of this story to its new format, I decided to take another week and create an alternate ending for those of you who wanted the outcome to have been different.  There are also 7 new panels throughout the main story, 5 bonus panels, and 18 panels in the alternate ending.  Also included are 6 prototype and promo images of Ryan and Alexi's creation!

The PDF's images are bigger than the blog versions (increased to 1500 x 1167) and are less compressed, giving you a clearer image.

Extras and Updates:
  • Improved, more even lighting with softer shadows.
  • Improved surfaces.  Better colors and contrast.
  • Numerous improvements in posing and camera positioning.
  • Story improvements, both in content and clarity.  Over 5,600 words added.
  • Brand new, PDF exclusive alternate ending.
  • 30 new panels (in main story, alternate ending, and bonuses).
  • 6 prototype and promo images.

Specifications:
  • File size: 44 MB
  • Pages: 128 total (61 renders, 62 text pages, and 5 pages for cover, credits, alt ending splash, bonus extras splash, and rear)
  • Language: English
  • File format: PDF (readable on computers and eReaders; more info here)
  • No annoying DRM; open on as many devices as you want

As always, thank you for your support!  This one was a long time coming, but with the alternate ending and the bonuses I think it's been worth the wait!

    1. Thank you, Alex! That means a lot to me to know. And yeah, the original ending is canon, but I did have requests to have Ryan win, so it was nice to fulfill that for them.

      Thanks again, man. Really appreciate it.
