While you wait to hear about when the next season of Netflix’s Emmy-winning GLOW is coming — easily the best prestige television series about a wrestling promotion from the 80s whose inspiration might’ve been its complete tonal opposite — we’re excited to help you bridge the gap with an exclusive first-look at the first five pages of IDW Publishing’s GLOW comic book. You really haven’t lived until you’ve seen anime Marc Maron.
And how cute is comic book Britney Young?
The comic series about the television show about pro wrestling that’s also sometimes a wrestling show, written by Tini Howard and drawn by Hannah Templer with so much wonderful source material, presents the ensemble cast in cartoon form as they try to figure out what they’re going to do on a weekend off. Like a lot of wrestling fans in southern California, they end up headed to Reseda.
Check out our sneak peek below:
Howard has a solid pro wres comic pedigree having written for Boom’s WWE Comics, and Templer’s work on Jem and the Holograms makes her an authority on the look and vibe of the time. Plus, the series is overseen by show creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, so it’d be hard to find a more authentic Glow without putting Godiva and Zelda the Brain in charge.
You can pick up the series starting in March, which we absolutely recommend, if only to maximize your life’s Liberty Belle content.
