UPDATE: Marvel have released McGuinness cover for Drax #1.
It could reveal story details or it could just be a really awesome drawing of Drax. Writer CM Punk does like to layer his experiences in his work so the story could be about fighting. If you look at the image you’ll see various easter eggs like his old wrestling catch phrase “Best in the World”, UFC, and an appearance by friend and current independent wrestler Colt Cabana.
Announced at C2E2, former wrestler turned UFC fighter turned author, CM Punk will write a new Drax the Destroyer ongoing comic for Marvel. The series will launch in Winter 2015. No co-writer or series artist was named, but the cover for the first issue will be drawn by Ed McGuinness.
Punk recently did a short story for Thor Annual alongside Chew artist Rob Guillory. His next story that will see print is part of DC/Vertigo’s Strange Sports Stories. This also marks Drax’s first solo ongoing comic joining the fellow Guardian ranks of Rocket Raccoon and Legendary Star-Lord.
As the book is still aways away, more details are to be revealed soon. Teasing the book was a good move on both parties parts. Punk being a Chicago native, a big announcement about his future in comics during one of the biggest shows made all the sense in the world.
