Christopher Daniels gives an update on a potential AEW comic book.
Speaking with Wrestling Inc, Daniels spoke on the possibility of an AEW comic book being worked on and if such a thing would ever come to fruition. Daniels said there hasn't been much movement on it given that AEW's TV product takes precedence.
Last year, AEW collaborated with DC Comics for new art pieces featuring Chris Jericho, Awesome Kong and Jon Moxley. DC Comics is owned by Warner Media, which also owns TNT, the home of AEW Dynamite. The pieces were drawn by Justice League and Flash artist Howard Porter.
"Yeah, because TNT has ties with Warner Bros. who also has ties with DC Comics. We did a little bit of a thing especially because we did our Revolution PPV earlier this year. It was a part of C2E2, which is the big comic book convention in Chicago. It was great. We had some DC artists, Ramon Villalobos and Howard Porter, did some great cover art of some AEW stars. There was some great shots of Cody, and Chris Jericho, and Nyla Rose and they did an SCU piece that I really dug. It was very cool. Because we've got that tie, we're looking into doing an AEW comic book I'm sure. I don't think there's been any movement on that just because of the stuff that we're doing with the television show right now that takes precedence, but we're always in the market to sort of find new ways to get new fans to get their eyes on the AEW product," Daniels said.
Wrestling is no stranger to comics/manga. WWE has had comic book tie-ins in the past and NJPW recently unveiled a manga centered on Tetsuya Naito.
