BOOM! Studios, in partnership with WWE surprised fans today with a video from WWE Superstars The New Day announcing writers Evan Narcisse and Austin Walker and artist Daniel Bayliss as the creative team for new graphic novel, WWE: THE NEW DAY, starring WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and WWE Superstars Big E and Xavier Woods of The New Day, releasing in 2020.
The New Day debuted as a tag team in 2014 and have gone on to become six-time Tag Team Champions, including the longest reigning champions in WWE history. Kingston also made headlines this past April after his historic win against Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35 in front of a sold-out crowd of 82,265 fans at MetLife Stadium.
Evan Narcisse is a journalist and critic who writes about video games, comic books, movies and TV. He is a senior staff writer at io9, having previously written for The Atlantic, Time Magazine, and Kotaku. He’s taught a course on video game journalism at New York University and appeared as an expert guest on CNN and NPR. Narcisse is also the author of the Rise of the Black Panther graphic novel for Marvel Comics. A native New Yorker, he now lives in Austin, Texas.
“I grew up loving and watching the Superstars of yesteryear but it wasn’t until I first saw The New Day that I felt like I finally got the sports entertainment that I’d been waiting for my whole life. The wit, charisma, and energy that Kofi, Xavier, and Big E show in the ring is incredibly infectious and I can’t wait to translate all that to the medium of comics.” said Evan Narcisse.
