The Adventures of the Galactic Wrestling Federation is an ongoing sci-fi wrestling adventure chronicling the journey of a young robotic wrestler named The Red Menace. Our main character is the son of RMD - the greatest GWF champion of all time! We follow Red and his robot dog, Rusty, as they fight their way through a colorful cast of characters including The Loan Shark, Garanadon, Quarmac, and Dr. Chaka!

Issues 1 and 2
Issues 1 and 2

RMD's gruesome demise came at the hands of the dastardly Dr. Chaka. During the legendary Klash in the Kosmos Chaka not only tarnished RMD's legacy, but also orphaned his son, The Red Menace. Red ends up in the care of Mama, a beautiful botanical being who is one of the Federation's most renowned managers. Together, they navigate their way through a path strewn with danger and double-crosses...all for one shot at Dr. Chaka, the title and redemption.

This project began almost six years ago as a series of sculptures and has progressively grown due to the many strengths of this creative team. Our joy of comics brought this team together and it's our love of storytelling that will see it through. Fans of science-fiction, wrestling and old school Saturday morning cartoons will all find something to enjoy in our book!

Risks and challenges

We are absolutely committed to the Galactic Wrestling Federation and plan to complete this project one way or another. Together, over the past year and a half, we have been constantly refining our story and collaborative process. At this point, the only risk for us would be to not take this chance.

As far as any potential challenges; our teamwork wasn't impacted when our artist moved across the country during the initial planning stages for developing the first issue. Our process has only improved since then! We have learned to appreciate and rely on what each member brings to the table. For us, failure is not an option.
