This fall, former WWE Divas Champion, AJ Lee, will co-write a new GLOW comic book series with actress, Aimee Garcia.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, IDW Publishing will produce “GLOW vs. The Babyface” with returning artist, Hannah Templer. She worked on the initial series centered around the Netflix show, which hit the shelves earlier this year.
In the new four-part series, the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling will encounter a news anchor who is determined to convince the public that wrestling can and will corrupt the youth of America. While the women of GLOW struggle to convince everyone, and themselves, that they’re not a bad influence on kids, they become responsible for a run-away preteen that has been living under their wrestling ring.
AJ Lee is a noted comic book fan and the author of the NY Times Bestseller, Crazy Is My Superpower: How I Triumphed by Breaking Bones, Breaking Hearts, and Breaking the Rules.
When reached for a statement, Lee said, “As huge fans of the Netflix series, Aimee and I are thrilled and honored to get our hands on the ladies of GLOW. Aimee’s experience in acting and my experience in pro-wrestling makes us a formidable tag team with a unique perspective to truly channel the voices of these hilarious heroines. Our mission as writing partners is to represent diverse, complex, and unbreakable female characters, which is why GLOW feels like the perfect fit.”
The first issue of “GLOW vs. The Babyface” will be available in November. In the meantime, the third season of GLOW premiered this month on Netflix.
