“Here at Boom! we’re thrilled to be a part of WWE’s return to the comic book medium,” said Boom! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “The WWE Universe is a passionate fanbase, and we aim to provide them with the comic series they’ve always wanted – a series featuring their favorite Superstars and storylines, a series that highlights the incredible history of the brand. An authentic series that matters.”
“Boom! is one of the fastest-growing comic book publishers in the industry and their vision for the WWE brand showed us exactly why,” said Casey Collins, WWE’s executive vice president of consumer products. “We were blown away by the level of detail and creativity and are confident the WWE Universe and comic book fans will agree.”
The only WWE star that has been confirmed for the series is John Cena but WWE is expected to announce more names for the series shortly. No word yet on when the first comic will be released.
