In an EXXXCLUSIVE reveal at ComicBook.com (putting those Arune Singh connections to good use already), BOOM! Studios has announced a special 40 page one-shot WWE comic: Wrestlemania 2017 Special #1. The creative team is as bloated as the latter day NWO, and will soon need to be split off into Creative Team Wolfpac, with writers Dennis Hopeless, Andy Belanger, Box Brown, Stevie Ray, Aubrey Sitterson, and Ross Thibodeaux, artists Andy Belanger, and Rob Guillory, and cover artists Rob Schamberger, Adam X Vass, Jim Rugg, and Horace Hogan. The comic will cost a whopping $7.99, showing Arune Singh is bringing some other, more terrible ideas to BOOM! from his time at Marvel as well.
The comic will look back at past Wrestlemania moments in history, as long as none of them involve Hulk Hogan, Chris Benoit, Jimmy Snuka, or any other past superstars that put the company in potentially embarrassing spotlight, because that wouldn’t be best for business.
Despite their newfound partnership with BOOM!, ComicBook.com didn’t have any covers from the actual comic, instead showing art from other WWE comics. Luckily, Bleeding Cool has EXXXCLUSIVELY obtained the 1:1000 variant cover, which we proudly reveal below:
Here’s the solicit description:
