Mick Foley, or “Mankind” as some of you may remember him, has signed a deal with Papercutz Publishing for two original comic book series featuring a roster of WWE Superstars. Foley will be writing an action based series set to debut just in time for the holidays, and will be following it up with a children’s series in the new year.
Official Press Release:
Papercutz, the industry’s leading children’s graphic novel publisher, has inked a licensing deal with WWE for two original ongoing comic series featuring the entertainment company’s powerful roster of WWE Superstars. A mainline action/adventure series written by New York Times best-selling author and three-time WWE Champion Mick Foley debuts in December, followed by a separate children’s series in June 2014.
“WWE’s Superstars are truly larger-than-life, with the kind of personality and raw power that makes a comics page crackle with excitement,” said Papercutz Editor-In-Chief Jim Salicrup. “It’s the kind of action and drama that’s just perfect for comics, and Mick Foley is just the WWE Legend we need to make it happen.”
Foley’s series will be set in the real world of WWE’s most electrifying events like Monday Night Raw® and Friday Night Smackdown® and will feature a growing cast of today’s most popular WWE Superstars along with legends from the company’s storied history. The monthly title will launch in December in comic book stores and newsstands nationwide under a new Papercutz imprint for teens and up. Graphic novel collections of the series will launch next May.
”I am very excited about this new partnership and comic book series,” said Mick Foley. “Writing is a great outlet for me, and sharing stories of WWE Superstars, both past and present, make it possible to introduce a whole new generation to WWE.”
