NO PAIN, NO GAIN: THE COMIC
Artist Billy Garretsen and "No Pain, No Gain" writer-producer-director
Samuel Turcotte are collaborating to create a comic book based on the
feature film. This exciting new comic will have the same basic characters
and storyline as the film, but adapted to fit the medium of comics. Turcotte
says "the world of bodybuilding is the perfect fit for a comic, because
bodybuilders in many ways are real-life superheros."
