Published for comic shops by Antarctic Press, the full, three-issue series, Turnbuckle Titans: Nikolai, is the authorized comic biography of late Croatian wrestling legend, 2005 WWE Hall of Famer and WWF Tag Team Champion, along with his infamous partner, the Iron Sheik! This is the true life story of his escape from communism and climb to the heights of wrestling stardom. Written by John Crowther (Squared Circle Comics' The Genius Lanny Poffo, The Killer Bees, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Bruno Sammartino and Antarctic Press' Rochelle), this story of Nikolai's life is based on in-depth interviews and intimate conversations between the writer and the wrestler. Art is provided by comics legend, Dell Barras (Conan the Barbarian, Batman, Superman, and many more), with colors by Andrew Pate (The Killer Bees, The Genius Lanny Poffo). 

Originally published independently by wrestling imprint Squared Circle Comics, Nikolai was funded via a series of Kickstarter campaigns, with a share of all sales going directly to Nikolai. With his unexpected and tragic passing earlier this year, his portion of sales will now go to his wife.

Turnbuckle Titans: Nikolai is available NOW in Diamond Previews in the Antarctic Press Solicitations, using order code OCT181419.
