Do a Powerbomb: Daniel Warren Johnson Makes a Wrestling Comic

Image Comics has worked itself into a shoot and will publish a new wrestling comic in June by superstar creator Daniel Warren Johnson. Do a Powerbomb is the title of this best of seven series described as "The Wrestler meets Dragonball Z." Here's the details from the press release:

Fan-favorite cartoonist Daniel Warren Johnson (Murder Falcon, Wonder Woman: Dead Earth) will bring readers an all-new, action-packed tale in the upcoming, Do a Powerbomb. This seven issue miniseries is set to launch this June from Image Comics.

Do a Powerbomb follows Lona Steelrose who wants to be a pro wrestler, but lives in the shadow of her mother's success before her. But everything changes when a wrestling-obsessed necromancer asks Lona to join the grandest—and the most dangerous—pro wrestling tournament of all time!

The most dangerous pro-wrestling tournament of all time? Is Ridge Holland wrestling in it? Do a Powerbomb #1 will feature a main cover by Johnson and a variant by James Harren.

Now cut his music! Daniel Warren Johnson wants to shoot on something…

Ever since I started writing and drawing comics, I've wanted to make stories that get me EXCITED. I mean, like, REALLY PUMPED UP. And it's no different here with Do a Powerbomb, where I've tried to channel my passion and love for pro-wrestling into a 2D space, to try and share it with my readers as best I can, and maybe get them excited about it too. And honestly, what's a better way to make something new than to combine two things I love so much? I hope you all join me on this ride. I'm so proud of it!

What a babyface! This book is definitely f***ing going over. Whatcha gonna do on June 15th when Do a Powerbomb #1 runs wild over you, brother?!

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
