This was my first introduction into the curious literature of Todd Noy and the amazing body of work that he brought into the world.

I'd been travelling around South America and ended up in Chala, a small town on the Pacific Coast of Peru and as is often the case, my arrival coincided with the departure of another seasoned traveler. He was flying back to Europe the following day and so was keen to jettison any excess baggage that he had and amongst his trinkets was a battered first edition of 'Dra

This is a curious little book. It is only 87 pages, and is meant to answer the burning question: What happened to Ivan Drago? The copy that I read was given to me from the estate of Todd Noy. The estate manages a Facebook page promoting this book. I messaged them, asking how to acquire a copy of the book, and a few weeks later I received one via international mail. The book was originally published in 1989. The copy that I have is a newer edition, probably published in 2012, but I am not certain ...more

I got the book (and the t-shirt) today and read it in one sitting. It's a fantastic story, with no filler at all.
I thought the book kept the characters accurate to the movie versions really well, including Rocky's speech patterns and Drago's intense focus.
It'd be even better if there was a chance for the author to write a full trilogy of this, starting with Ivan's fall and early fights, the second book on his match with Clubber Lang, and the third about his redemption and epilogue. Unfortunatel

“Drago – on mountains we stand” is an unofficial, truly 'pirate' book, even featuring a fake bio for Todd Noy, which is the fake identity for the ghost writer who wrote it.
Needless to say, I love pirate books written in good faith.
A Rocky spin-off, the novel is centered around Ivan Drago, who was the 'bad guy' during the fourth Rocky movie.
The book is beautiful in your hands, with a really cool cover that helps you starting it in the right mood.
Style is good.
The author's first language probably

Finding out that this book even existed was very exciting to me. Noy's version of how Drago's life played out beyond the movie was very entertaining and fascinating. The way in which the familiar characters were presented in this book aligned very nicely to their respective movie performances as well, which made the book easy to follow. Apart from a few story elements which, to me, were a bit overly dramatic, I loved reading this book. I couldn't put it down, and wished it had gone on for many m ...more

This book continues from the Rocky 4 movie ending.
This book was well written, and had captured the readers imagination to the events happening to Ivan Drago. Todd Noy, a mysterious author gave a good story to a character who disappeared after the Rocky movies.

I loved the book. Its a bit short but was really well written and fun to read. I loved the ending and the way it progressed, and I would reccomend it to everyone who liked Ivan Drago from the movie. 5/5!
