Down Set Fight

Oni Press announced the return of fan-favorite and YALSA-nominated graphic novel throwdown, Down, Set, Fight!in a brand-new 10th Anniversary editionThe gut-busting, gut-punching tale of football mascots with a score to settle by co-writers Chad Bowers and Chris Sims (Deadpool: Bad Blood, X-Men ‘92) and artist Scott Kowalchuk (Lucha Liberty, Batman ‘66) is back, featuring a new deluxe hardcover edition with all-new cover art pummeling its way into stores June 25!

In Down, Set, Fight!“Fearless” Chuck Fairlane was football’s fastest rising star, but his career came to a screeching halt when he was expelled from the league after goin’ HAM and causing the biggest brawl in the history of sports. Years later, Chuck has found peace as a high school football coach, until costumed mascots begin attacking him for seemingly no reason. Before long, Chuck’s going to discover that you can’t run away from the past – but you CAN punch it square in the face! 

Down, Set, Fight! is a father and son story” said co-writer Chad Bowers. “That’s what connected with readers back then and still does today. Unless I’m completely out of touch, fighting with your folks is still more commonplace than a knock-down drag-out with a rage-fueled mascot. And not for nothing, but we were waaaay ahead of the ‘ridiculous things to bet on’ curve. Before Draft Kings, there was Down, Set, Fight!

“Chad and I have written a lot of comics, but very few of them are as personal and driven by an emotional core as this one, where we made Scott draw a man hitting a guy dressed like a bear with a frying pan and then setting him on fire,” said co-writer Chris Sims.

Ready? Break! The Down, Set, Fight! 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition HC squares off in comic shops and bookstores everywhere on June 25th!
