Becky Lynch is one of, if not the, most popular WWE Superstar right now so it’s no surprise that she’s the star of WWE SmackDown Live #1, an upcoming special from Boom! Studios written by Kevin Panetta and illustrated by Kendall Goode. It follows “The Man” as she prepares for the Friday night premiere of SmackDown Live.
We’ll follow her journey as she arrives at the arena and all the other Superstars she encounters along the way including The Brothers of Destruction (Undertaker and Kane), the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions The Iiconics (Peyton Royce and Billie Kay), WWE Chamption Kofi Kingston, the Big Dog himself, Roman Reigns, and many more. Superstars break into a free-for-all behind the scenes as unexpected alliances are formed, lifelong enemies are made, and chaos ensues all centered around Lynch.
Chris Rosa, Editor, Boom! Studios says:
The Man is one of the most electrifying Superstars to hit the ropes, and what better way to begin a new era of SmackDown Live than with Becky Lynch in the lead? Current WWE Superstars collide with WWE Legends, who are all here for one of the biggest and most unpredictable nights that they’ll ever face in the ring.
WWE SmackDown Live #1 will feature a main cover by Xermánico. It’s set for release on October 2nd, 2019.
