Joe Palooka

An MMA comic book? Why not? Beginning today, “Joe Palooka” issues #1 & #2 will become available for purchase for the first time anywhere. Fans can get their hands on the comic at Palooka.com, and hard copies of the issue will follow in early 2012.

“It’s finally here… ‘Joe Palooka’ is finally going to make its worldwide debut today!” exclaimed “Joe Palooka” creator Joe Antonacci. “I guarantee that fight fans, comic book fans, and action-adventure fans who download the comic are not going to be disappointed. The storylines, the characters, the art…it’s going to be awesome!”

Antonacci announced that a special 13-page free-view will also be available Monday simply for signing up with an email address on http://www.Palooka.com/, and fans can also take advantage of a unique offer on “Joe Palooka” issues #1 and #2, which will be available together for the low price of only $1.99. We checked out the free-view and the art is outstanding.

The “Joe Palooka” comic series tells the story of Joe Palooka, an MMA fighter who competes in “Legion of Combat,” which is a sister comic publication. “Legion of Combat” will feature Joe Palooka and top MMA stars including “Suga” Rashad Evans, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson, the Blackzilians, Brendan Schaub, and the Miller brothers in team matches between fighters representing countries such as the U.S., the U.K., Brazil, Russia, Japan, China, and other nations.
