Boom! Studios and WWE Entertainment have announced the upcoming release of WWE: Undertaker, an all-new original graphic novel exploring the career of The Phenom.
Novelist, journalist, and combat sports expert Chad Dundas (Champion of the World) and artist Rodrigo Lorenzo (WWE) will chronicle the unrivaled career of Undertaker, with new revelations and surprises about some of the most pivotal moments in his more than twenty-five year history in sports entertainment.
“I was 12 years old in 1990 when Undertaker debuted in WWE, and from the moment I saw him, he was my guy,” said writer Chad Dundas. “I responded immediately, not only to his obvious physical attributes, but the character development and storytelling that made him such a unique figure in the WWE landscape,”
“I’m so happy that I was chosen to draw this story for so many reasons,” said Rodrigo Lorenzo. “Since I was a kid, Undertaker has been my favorite WWE Superstar and it’s flattering that BOOM! Studios and WWE chose me to bring the legend of the Undertaker to life in their first original graphic novel.”
“There’s only one ‘Phenom’ in the history of WWE, so when we were considering whose story to tell in the first WWE original graphic novel, there was only one answer: Undertaker,” said Eric Harburn, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Working closely with our partners at WWE has allowed us to go deeper into the history of Undertaker than you’ve ever gone before, with revelations that span his decades-long career.”
WWE: Undertaker is set to go on sale in October 2018.
