Step Over the Ropes and into 1990s wrestling. Set in a fictional world, Over the Ropes dives into sports entertainment's biggest era. A young high-flyer named Jason Lynn goes off-script in a match to win the world title and sets the southern territory on fire as the face-painted wrestler, Phoenix. Jason's battles between the ropes are only outperformed by his struggles outside the ring. First dates. Crooked promoters. Cage matches. Factions and families. No matter what problems smack him with a steel chair, Jason lives by his catchphrase: I. Will. Rise.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jun 19, 2022

    Over The Ropes #1 is a brilliant comic that perfectly embodies the world it lives in. It is also a fantastic continuation of the Over the Ropes story. It keeps the characters authentic, but it takes all of them to a different stage of their career. But it also does much more to embrace the personal lives of the characters. Read Full Review

    I loved this first issue of Over the Ropes. It is fun, entertaining, and brings the big fight feel to sequential art. I can't wait to see what is next for Jason as he just put a massive target on his back. Worth the price of admission, make sure to check it out! Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Clyde Hall Dec 2, 2019

    Like Jason, the opening match of this comic has heart. It adds in protagonist smarts and a story about overcoming that's as much a staple of great wrestling rivalries as other sports films featuring leads named Rocky and Daniel-san. It may be a preliminary for a legendary Main Event, told from both personal and ringside perspectives. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Lizzy Garcia Oct 14, 2019

    I will be honest, I do not watch wrestling often but Becky Lynch empowers the hell out of me so I was open to reading this comic. However, Jason is just not a likable main character. However, Cosentino's art is lovely and Segala's colors are brilliant. If you are a big wrestling fan you will more than likely enjoy this comic just because of the history it explores, but if you are like me and a more casual fan maybe pick up BOOM! Studios' WWE series instead. Read Full Review
