The torso-exploding FINAL VOLUME of the sci-fi wrestling political parody action manga that rocked Japan!

Ages 16 and up.


IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO’S RIGHT, ONLY WHO’S LEFT.

The battle to end all battles makes landfall in the formerly sleepy city of Hakodate. The victor of this conflict will become the world’s next dominant superpower, but when the dust settles, will Planet Earth continue to exist in an era of pumped-up pugnacious brawlers pitted against each other mano-a-mano? Will we return to a world of iron and gunpowder, where men die by the pull of a trigger and humanity can be wiped out with the single push of a button? And what is the mysterious power that lies in the grooves of the third golden record? All will be revealed in the FINAL VOLUME of Golosseum!

Story Locale: Earth, except with more piledrivers

Series Overview: Scientists discover a new material that renders people immune to all existing weapons. But these “peacemakers” instead transform world war into a martial-arts free-for-all! Rasputin abd Russian President Putinov plot to control the global supply. Opposing them are the unstoppable Axe Bogan, a certain master in a jumpsuit from China, and a slew of other muscular heroes!

Word of mouth will spread for this title like wildfire (if wildfire could punch you)

A sci-fi action plot that is just an excuse for a no-holds-barred, international bareknuckle brawl to determine the future of the world

A cast “choke” full of completely fictional characters that nevertheless bear a striking similarity to certain Russian, American, Japanese, and Chinese wrestlers/politicians/dictators/action movie stars.

Russian President Putinov rides a shark and punches off a bear’s head

Ongoing in Japan. Ages 16+.

Creator of the comedy manga Lizard King and the martial arts manga Karate Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru, Baba Yasushi put both those genres to work in Golosseum, his first manga to be published in English.
