NIKOLAI is the authorized comic biography of Croatian wrestling legend, Nikolai Volkoff, 2005 WWE Hall of Famer, former WWF Tag Team Champion, and former partner of the Iron Sheik! Along with Bruno Sammartino, Nikolai was the first professional wrestler to sell out Madison Square Garden. Written by John Crowther (Antarctic Press' Rochelle), this story of Nikolai's life is based on in-depth interviews and intimate conversations between the writer and the wrestler.
So far in our story, Nikolai Volkoff escaped communism in his home Croatia to find wrestling fame in Canada and the United States as part of the heel tag team, The Mongols. In issue 3, we pick up as his singles career explodes in the wake of his epic battle with Bruno Sammartino at Madison Square Garden. Now, we witness his finest hours, as he joins with the Iron Sheik to form one of the most infamous tag teams in wrestling history and competes for the WWF Tag Team Championship at the inaugural Wrestlemania! IT'S ALL IN HERE.
