PORTLAND, Ore. 03/15/2022 — 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!
"Ever since I started writing and drawing comics, I've wanted to make stories that get me EXCITED. I mean, like, REALLY PUMPED UP," said Johnson in an exclusive on the series announcement at IGN. "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!"
The competitors get more than they ever bargained for in this story best described as The Wrestler meets Dragonball Z!
