Coming from New Paradigm Studios shortly on ComicsPlus

THE ROCKTHROWER is a dramatic comedy on the trials and tribulations of David Willis, a down and out baseball scout on his last leg. When Willis sees footage of a Palestinian/Israeli conflict, he is transfixed on a new potential pitching discovery — a Palestinian teen throwing rocks with a speed and accuracy that defies even the best pitchers on Major League Baseball teams. On a wild hunch, a wing and a prayer, Dave travels into unforeseen territory to make this kid a star. But will his own heritage of being Jewish and his dark past as a disgraced baseball player put this endeavor towards a path of failure before its even had a chance to succeed?

By Brandon Perlow, Paul J. Mendoza, Karl Bollers, Justin F. Gabrie, Gus Vazquez, Dave Ross, Gene, DeCicco and Ivan Santillan.
