About

Killerbowl is the most exciting, action-packed, football game you've never seen! But don’t despair. We're here to bring that game to life for you by transforming Gary K. Wolf’s popular cult-classic sports novel into an unforgettable graphic novel.

Killerbowl is Roger Rabbit creator Gary K. Wolf’s first novel, published in 1975. Like the frequently ultraviolent science fiction novels of that time, Killerbowl delivers the goods, hard, fast, and straight to the gut. The book tells a story that will both shock and entertain you with a raw energy you rarely find in science fiction nowadays.

Killerbowl is a novel with strong visual imagery. As you read this book, scenes from the story play out in your head. We want to make those mental images real. That's why our team of comic book creators joined forces with Gary K. Wolf.

The world was astounded and mesmerized when Roger Rabbit made the jump from a character in a novel to a Toon on the silver screen. We want to enthrall and captivate you in the same way by showing you first hand a world where the game of football has evolved into a raw contest of mayhem and murder.  To say you won’t believe your eyes would be an understatement. This graphic novel will be unlike anything you have ever seen before.
