Road to San Diego Announcement #1
BOOM! Studios first announcement in their 2016 Road to San Diego campaign was recently released, as it unveiled a partnership with WWE to publish new comics. The series will launch at Comic-Con International with a set of six blind-bagged one page comics. The comics will be on sale the BOOM! Studios booth #2229 for $5 each. Titled WWE: Then. Now. Forever. Each comic will feature a pin-up image on one side of a different wrestler and a one-page info-comic on the other side that explores that wrestler’s background and history in the ring. Three of these comics will focus on current wrestlers (Now), two on retired favorites (Then), and one on a legendary WWE talent (Forever). A seventh one-page comic will be given out FREE to all attendees of our panel on the WWE comics (see below). Each info-comic is illustrated by Russ Manning Award nominee Daniel Bayliss (Kennel Block Blues, Translucid), colored by Doug Garbark, and lettered by Jim Campbell.
