Boom! Studios announces partnership with WWE to launch WWE comics

Boom! Studios in partnership with WWE announced the launch of the two-issue limited series WWE The New Day: Power of Positivity. The series will feature former WWE superstars Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, and Big E.

The new WWE comics are written by Evan Narcisse (Rise of the Black Panther) and Austin Walker (Friends at the Table), and artist Daniel Bayliss (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers).

Kingston, Woods, and Big E have collectively won 11 Tag Team Championships in WWE, including the longest reign in WWE history.

According to Boom!, the new series will allow fans to discover the origins and struggles of the three WWE Superstars before that fateful day when they realized they were together rather than apart.

WWE The New Day: Power Of Positivity #1 features main cover art by series artist Bayliss and variant cover art by acclaimed illustrators Rahzzah (Wolverine) and Ernanda Souza (King in Black: Captain America).

In a statement, Narcisse said, “Collaborating with my colleague Austin Walker so we could tap into the personalities of The New Day to tell the origin story of this history-making trio has been an incredibly enriching experience, We tried to write a love letter to an unseen side of WWE history, and I’m so excited that WWE fans everywhere will finally be able to read how Kofi, Xavier, and Big E came together to form sports entertainment’s most electrifying tag team.”

Walker said, “When Evan Narcisse and I started planning WWE The New Day: The Power of Positivity, we realized right away that it was a perfect fit. Kofi, Big E, and Xavier are as extraordinary as the very best comic book heroes, and their journey from up-and-coming underdogs to de facto superstars is one of struggle, identity, and perseverance. All of that, plus bright and vivid art from Daniel Bayliss, that’s a dream match if ever there was one.”

Print copies of WWE The New Day: Power Of Positivity #1 will be available for sale in July 2021 exclusively at local comic book shops. Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including ComiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and Madefire.
