by Brendan M. Allen

It’s been a minute since we’ve had any new WWE comics content. Dennis Hopeless and Serg Acuna wrapped up the last WWE monthly all the way back in 2019. While it isn’t an ongoing, or a promise for one coming, it’s nice to see BOOM! Studios putting out a fresh WWE story this coming July, featuring everyone’s favorite gospel singers turned pancake flingers, The New Day.

BOOM! Studios has announced WWE The New Day: Power of Positivity, featuring WWE Superstars Kofi Kingston, Big E and Xavier Woods. Writers Evan Narcisse and Austin Walker team up with artist Daniel Bayliss on the brand new two-issue limited series.

‘Kingston, Woods and Big E have collectively won 11 Tag Team Championships in WWE, including the longest reign in WWE history! This 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 than apart.’

“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,” said Narcisse. “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.”

“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,” Walker adds. “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.”

WWE The New Day: Power of Positivity #1 features main cover art by series artist Bayliss and variant cover art by Rahzzah and Ernanda Souza and hits the spinner racks this July 2021.
