IDW Publishing has announced that it is expanding its GLOW comic book series by pairing actress Aimee Garcia (Lucifer, Dexter) and AJ Mendez, a.k.a. former WWE superstar AJ Lee, iwht artist Hannah Templer (Cosmoknights) for the new limited series GLOW vs. The Babyface.
“I’m a HUGE fan of GLOW. I grew up reading comics and never saw myself represented in them, so I’m excited to explore these trailblazing characters and create the change for the next generation. AJ and I are basically writing for our younger selves,” says Aimee Garcia.
“As huge fans of the Netflix series, Aimee and I are thrilled and honored to get our hands on the ladies of GLOW,” adds AJ Mendez. “Aimee’s experience in acting and my experience in pro-wrestling makes us a formidable tag team with a unique perspective to truly channel the voices of these hilarious heroines. Our mission as writing partners is to represent diverse, complex, and unbreakable female characters, which is why GLOW feels like the perfect fit.”
“GLOW has been such an incredible treat to work on, and we’re thrilled to have two amazing, talented women in Aimee and AJ (both of whom we’re huge fans of!) join the family,” states editors Elizabeth Brei and Megan Brown. “With their incredibly funny and smart writing and Hannah coming back to continue wowing us with her hilarious cartooning, GLOW vs. The Babyface is going to be another great chapter in the GLOW storybook!”
In GLOW vs. The Babyface, the women of GLOW are preparing for an all-new sort of a foe… a news anchor! As they learn the art of the promo to convince the media that GLOW isn’t a bad influence on children, they discover a much bigger problem — a runaway who’s been living under the ring. Madness and mayhem ensue as the preteen girl finds herself in the hands of L.A.’s least qualified babysitters!
