Yes, yes, yes. Professional wrestling and comic book fans alike can share a rallying cry because Boom! Studios is partnering with World Wrestling Entertainment to produce comic books and graphic novels.
Though the exact details of the partnership have yet to be announced, Hero Complex has the exclusive first look at an image of WWE superstar John Cena illustrated by Jamal Campbell. No word if the wrestler/actor will be reprising his popular 4th of July “We Are America” speech, but here’s hoping.
This is not the WWE’s first foray into comic books, of course. From "WWF Battlemania" (Valiant) in the early ’90s to the more recent "WWE Heroes" (Titan), WWE wrestlers have long graced panels for various expanded adventures and bouts beyond the confines of the ring. As a medium rife with spandex-clad heroes with large personalities engaging in flashy battles with their foes, comics are a perfect arena for these stories featuring fan-favorite superstars. And fans are a big part of the WWE universe.
