PUNCH YOUR WAY TO THE TOP
INDIE NEWS-012020
An Alternate Reality Where Time Diverged Making for a Very Different Today

The campaign trail is paved with blood and broken bones. History diverged in 1868 when a pivotal presidential debate turned violent. Today, elections are decided by highly publicized hand-to-hand combat in arenas called Stumps. Unfortunately, the violence doesn't end in the ring, and powerful people can still get away with murder. Senator Jack Hammer and FBI Agent Anna Bell Lister are teaming up to bring it all down. Eisner-nominated writer CHUCK BROWN (BITTER ROOT) joins forces with Italian artist PRENZY (#Like4Like) and letterer CLAYTON COWLES to create a hyper-violent tale full of countless injustices-and people who have to fight for their place in it. Each issue of arc one features a connecting variant cover by SANFORD GREENE!

Image Comics new monthly series ON THE STUMP #1 ships with TWO standard covers is currently scheduled to arrive on New Comic Wednesday-021920 with a standard $3.99 cover price. As always it will be Alternate Reality "1st Day Sale" priced at 25% OFF ($2.99) on the 21st and 15% OFF for the rest of its first week of release ($3.39) while supplies last.
