Shane Davis’ Inglorious Rex Vol 2 Comic Book: Second Chance Campaign

Inglorious Rex Volume 2:
Heavy is the Crown

Rising star MMA fighter Alex Stone steps for the first time into the world of Rex Fighting - where 20 tons of genetically-manipulated clones are hitched to the neural systems of their human pilots, twisted together in no-holds-barred, high-stakes cage fighting.

In this fist-pumping, pulse-pounding graphic novel, Alex's unlikely rise as an underdog piloting his late brother's Rex will set him on a collision course with the fighter that holds the crown - the same man that killed his brother. Alex will have to confront the reasons he stepped into the cage, while waging a winner-takes-all battle for the title of Rex Champion.

 

Inglorious Rex is a passion project almost 10 years in the making. Shane Davis brings to this project over 20 years of experience as a professional comic book penciller and writer on projects such as DC Comic's Superman: Earth One, Batman, New Gods and more. He also co-created almost every member of DC Comic's Red Lanterns, including the world famous fan-favorite cat Dex-Starr the Red Lantern.
