If you’re like me at all, then you are obsessed with the Netflix series, GLOW. The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are kicking ass on the small screen and now they’ll be doing the same at a comic shop near you, thanks to IDW!


IDW Publishing enters the world of hairspray and headlocks with the announcement of a four-issue comic book miniseries based on GLOW, the acclaimed Netflix Original comedy series.

Debuting in March, the GLOW comic is written by Tini Howard (Euthanauts, WWE, Rick & Morty) and drawn by Hannah Templer (Jem and the Holograms: Dimensions). Liz Flahiveand Carly Mensch, the co-creators of the show, will officially serve as executive producers of the original comics, overseeing their creative development.

“We’re thrilled to work with IDW to bring new stories to life on the page and in the ring. Can we smoosh 14 women into a little frame? Only time will tell… but we couldn’t be more excited!” say Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch.

Starring Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, and Marc Maron, GLOW shines the spotlight on a crew of misfits in mid-1980s Los Angeles who reinvent themselves as the Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling. IDW’s GLOW miniseries provides a glimpse into the action between-the-scenes, as the less-than-prepared ladies are conned into a fundraising match… against real lady wrestlers!

“I’m more than just a GLOW fan, I’m a wrestling fan, too. I’ve written wrestling comics before, and I adore it,” says Tini Howard. “Wrestling and comic books are a natural fit for more than just tights and fights. Each of the gorgeous ladies has either developed her own character or adapted to one thrust upon her, and making that identity her own is not dissimilar to, say, putting on a bat costume.”

Hannah Templer says, “I’m absolutely thrilled about the visual opportunities a GLOW comic offers – there is a wealth of inspiration to be drawn from ’80s animation, fashion, and even wrestling magazines. I also think GLOW, which takes real-world conflicts and settles them within the fantasy of the wrestling ring, provides a really fun arena for expressiveness and visual play!”

For information on how to secure copies of the GLOW miniseries, please contact your local comic shop or visit www.comicshoplocator.com to find a store near you.
