PAWS is a current work-in-progress
(not yet available for purchase)
Six years ago, the Professional Animal Wrestling Syndicate (PAWS) shuttered when Ty Garrison, “The Battling Bengal,” died in the ring. Now, a PAWS revival has Safari City buzzing.
Ty’s son, Jason, feels the temptation to wrestle as his father did…a path not without obstacles and challenges.
• Jason’s mother has done everything in her power to keep Jason away from all things wrestling.
• Jason’s friend, Elwood, finds quick success which causes rifts among their group of friends.
• Abraham Wu, Battling Bengal’s former rival known as “Pandamonium,” offers to train Jason, who finds himself alongside other prospective new wrestling stars.
• And a masked wolf, “Lobo sin Nombre,” provides Jason some unexpected inspiration.
In the end, will Jason have what it takes to win the tournament crowning the new PAWS champion?
PAWS is a hybrid prose/graphic novel. Here are some examples and “work-in-progress” images of how I’m developing the story:
I think one of your animals should be called Randi the Amazing.
I’ll keep that suggestion in mind. I can’t help wonder what kind of animal you think “Randi the Amazing” ought to be.
If you’re taking requests, I’d like to be Amy “the Big Cheese” Boucheron, a French goat who makes terrific fromage de chèvre on the side. (Unless that’s gross. Is that gross?)
Ha ha. It’s only gross if you think about it, Amy.
I want all of this.
Yes!!! Thanks, Jay. I want to make all of this!
