In Down Set Fight, “Fearless” Chuck Fairlane was one of the fastest rising stars in professional football, but his career came to a screeching halt when he was expelled from game after causing the biggest team-on-team brawl in the history of sports. Today, Chuck’s a teacher and football coach at Darius Rucker High School in Columbia, South Carolina, and is more than content in his new life. But when costumed mascots begin attacking him for seemingly no reason, Chuck soon discovers that even though he’s put the past behind him, it’s not always so easy to move on.
“This is one of the craziest comics in the history of crazy comics,” said editor Charlie Chu. “This is Superman vs. Muhammad Ali level nuts. But none of the insanity or hilarity would matter if Chuck weren’t such a fully realized character. This is a story about never being able to truly outrun your past, but always having the option to punch it square in the face.”
Down Set Fight, by Chad Bowers, Chris Sims, Scott Kowalchuk and Josh Krach. Coming April 2013 from Oni Press.
