Step into the ring at Glorious Wrestling Alliance, the universe's least-professional wrestling company. The Great Carp, an amphibious wonder, is feeling the weight of his championship. Miranda Fury has donned a mask to smash wrestling's glass ceiling. And Gravy Train is desperate for a new gimmick, but it's hard when you're shaped like a giant gravy boat.
Collected in colossal full color for the first time, Josh Hicks's cult-hit comic covers identity, anxiety, and leg drops. In this hilarious love letter to the surreal theater of pro wrestling, the insecure grapplers of GWA lock up, throw things, throw each other, and occasionally curl up into little balls.

"Josh Hicks does a tremendous job satirizing professional wrestling in Glorious Wrestling Alliance. Every facet of pro wrestling, from art to ego to commerce, gets a shot at the title with Josh's witty dialogue and vibrant art! A very funny and entertaining read!" —Christopher Daniels, All Elite Wrestling
"Imagine an epic wrestling match between the lust for life of Scott Pilgrim and the comic self-loathing of BoJack Horseman where we're all winners." —Kieron Gillen, writer of The Wicked + The Divine

Colorful, action-packed visual work from Josh Hicks. A perfect text for readers of all ages with much to enjoy.
Glorious Wrestling Alliance is the perfect comic for any wrestling fan. It leans into the ridiculous side of wrestling, with strange gimmicks (the champ has a carp head, a wrestler named Death Machine writes fanciful poetry that incorporates wrestling moves) with the reality of the wrestling world (grueling touring schedule, struggle of female wrestlers to be taken seriously). I am a huge wrestling fan, and this was so much fun to read. I would read many more volumes of GWA adventures.
