Ciudad Rencor (aka 'Grudge City')-the cross-cultural border mecca of wrestling and lucha libre - sees its streets bathed in blood after a bizarre museum robbery and hysterical reports of living mummies on the loose. It's now up to the unlikely team of the city's most noble t cnico El Victor and its most notorious rudo El Mil Calaveras to stop pounding on each other, put aside their families' three-generation-old rivalry, and bring back the glory days of masked 'lucha-heroes' battling Mexican monsters on the march. Written by Matt Wallace (Envy of Angels, The Failed Cities, Slingers), the former pro-wrestler-turned-scribe of the hit supernatural comedy series Sin du Jour, from a story by From Parts Unknown 'zine-maestro Keith J. Rainville, Rencor: Life in Grudge City is like 48 Hours or Starsky and Hutch fused with El Santo and the Aztec Mummy. No mere ring or steel cage can contain the blood-feuds, body slams, brass knuckles and bandages that spill onto the streets, turning Rencor City itself into one giant arena.
