The official promotional material for the release reads: “You know him as the heavily tattooed muscle for everybody’s favorite spacefaring super team, but what does Drax do when he’s not Guarding the Galaxy? Pursue his own bloodthirsty quest to achieve his destiny and slay Thanos, of course! Determined to find and kill the Titan once and for all, Drax is ready to take on the universe, one heavy hitter at a time! When Drax the Destroyer and Terrax the Tamer walk into a space cantina, it’s no joke. Then there’s the Temple of Foom! Fin Fang Foom, that is. You know Drax’s motto, though: the bigger they are, the harder they die screaming. It’s Drax the Destroyer, rampaging through space on a starship named the Space Sucker. You just know, whatever happens, this one is gonna be epic!”

Drax Volume Two is also up for pre-sale. The synopsis for that volume: “Annihilus. Ultron. Fin Fang Foom. They were all pieces of cake. Now, Drax prepares to take on the toughest challenge of his life… a gaggle of (partially traumatized) alien children who need to get back to their home planets. Don’t worry! Drax will fi nd other stuff to destroy. Like maybe…nap times? Homework? Poo poo diapies?”

Former WCW and USWA star Jeannie Clarke aka Lady Blossom has released an autobiography “Through The Shattered Glass”, which is available now for purchase. Clarke was married to Steve Austin and coined the phrase “Stone Cold” for his WWF persona. Missy Hyatt wrote an introduction for the book while Kevin Von Erich penned a foreword. Promotional material for the book reads:

It began as the classic rags to riches story of a girl who escaped a life of misery to attain accidental fame and fortune in the United States. But what happened to the girl when the American dream became a living nightmare? Jeanie Clarke, who shot to wrestling stardom as Lady Blossom, reveals all in this frank account of her individual rise, fall and retribution, and struggles to sustain a family with a husband who was driven to become the greatest wrestling star the world had ever known. For years, she suffered in silence to survive personal tragedy, the pressures of fame, and drug addiction: a self-destructive lifestyle that spiralled out of control. This uncompromising autobiography exposes the dark nature of the substance abuse culture which gripped the entertainment industry, examining the consequences to a broken family that it created. It is a detailed account of her highs and lows during a lifetime in the wrestling business, and the ultimate cost it had on those around her. This is a story of personal survival that remained unknown… until now.

The new “Rowdy” Roddy Piper autobiography being completed by his son and daughter is now available on Amazon for preorder. The book has the following description:

The biggest pro wrestling bio since Bret Hart’s Hitman: legendary Rowdy Roddy Piper’s unfinished autobiography, re-conceived and completed by his children, actress/musician Ariel Teal Toombs and wrestler Colt Baird Toombs.

In early 2015, Roderick Toombs, aka Rowdy Roddy Piper, began researching his own autobiography with a trip through Western Canada. He was re-discovering his youth, a part of his life he never discussed during his 61 years, many spent as one of the greatest talents in the history of pro wrestling. Following his death due to a heart attack that July, two of his children took on the job of telling Roddy’s story, separating fact from fiction in the extraordinary life of their father.

Already an accomplished wrestler before Wrestlemania in 1985, Roddy Piper could infuriate a crowd like no “heel” before him. The principal antagonist to all-American champion Hulk Hogan, Piper used his quick wit, explosive ring style and fearless baiting of audiences to push pro wrestling to unprecedented success. Wrestling was suddenly pop culture’s main event. An actor with over 50 screen credits, including the lead in John Carpenter’s #1 cult classic, They Live, Piper knew how to keep fans hungry, just as he’d kept them wishing for a complete portrait of his most unusual life. He wanted to write this book for his family; now they have written it for him.

The book will be released in hardcover and on Kindle October 4.
