Welcome to Super Pro K.O.! After a year of comic adventures, the site is finally live! Major shout-out to Kevin Craft for the awesome site-design. Thanks for being super patient with my “all-over-the-place” ideas for the site. But now there’s a headquarters for all things Super Pro K.O.! I owe you BIG.
If you didn't know, Super Pro K.O.! 2: Chaos in the Cage! came out on November 2nd! I'm super proud of it and have received a lot of love from the comic and wrestling community. I'm glad it's connecting with readers. Make sure your local comic shop has a set of copies on hand and continue to spread the word.
Lastly, be sure to take a look around here. I’ve got all sorts of stuff lined up down the line. If you’re “green” to the SPKO universe, be sure to check out the roster page. Get the lowdown on all of the faces, heels, and tweeners that hang out in the SPKO locker-room. More will be coming over time. You can also find links to all SPKO books on the Store page. If you want a low-down on how I get SPKO done, check out the FAQ!
I'll be posting my updates on Super Pro K.O. v3: Gold for Glory starting in mid December. That's not that far away is it? If you want to keep up with updates on my other comics including, Lunar Boy, go to www.lunarboyland.com.
Live Life. Dream Big.
The second volume of Super Pro K.O. hits comic shops today! I’ve received notes from some of you who are picking up a copy. Well, I’ve got a contest for you.

Superproko.com is launching in the next 2 weeks so save the URL. The site looks awesome! I’ll be starting my SPKO 3 updates there later this month. Lunarboyland.com will become a Progress Blog for the next Lunar Boy graphic novel that I’m currently working on.
Also, there have been a couple comic shops that have been extremely supportive of SPKO. Thanks for getting the word out to comic fans! “Power Daps” to Midtown Comics in NYC and Third Eye in Maryland! If you know a shop that’s pushing SPKO, just let me know.
On the Road Again:

So Super Pro K.O.! 2 takes place 3 months after volume 1. Things haven’t been so peachy for Joe Somiano considering he hasn’t been featured on television since his debut match versus Prince Clemont Swagger. His expression on this page says it all…
I won’t spoil what happens next. Let’s just say desperate measures are in order. Check out SPKO 2 in comic shops and bookstores everywhere this Wednesday November 2nd!

Tomahawk Slamson is one of my favorite characters and I think it’s because he’s arrogant and cocky, but also extremely hard-working. His budding acting career has taken his focus a bit away from the ring. He dismisses Joe early on in SPKO #1. Now with the release of National Disaster 3 coming up, he’s beginning his promo tour around the country. Here’s a sneak peek below:
Oh yeah, and he’s rocking a Usagi Yojimbo T-shirt. Perfect timing since the 200th issue of Usagi Yojimbo is out this week (Issue #141 through Dark Horse to be exact). Stan Sakai is the man.
Super Pro K.O.! 2: Chaos in the Cage! out in one week, November 2nd!
