Check out the cover:
Ciudad Rencor (aka ‘Grudge City’) — the cross-cultural border mecca of wrestling and lucha libre — sees its streets bathed in blood after a bizarre museum robbery and hysterical reports of living mummies on the loose. It’s up to the unlikely team of the city’s most noble ‘tecnico’ El Victor and its most notorious ‘rudo’ El Mil Calaveras to stop pounding on each other, put aside their family’s three-generation-old rivalry, and bring back the glory days of masked ‘lucha-heroes’ battling Mexican monsters on the march.
Written by Matt Wallace (Envy of Angels, The Failed Cities, Slingers), the former pro-wrestler-turned-scribe of the hit supernatural comedy series Sin du Jour, from a story by From Parts Unknown‘s Keith J. Rainville, Rencor: Life in Grudge City is like 48 Hours or Starsky and Hutch fused with El Santo and the Aztec Mummy. No mere ring or steel cage can contain the blood-feuds, body slams, brass knuckles and bandages that spill onto the streets, turning the city of Rencor itself into one giant arena.
