Written by Tini Howard and illustrated by Hyeonjin Kim, the four-issue story arc will highlight Asuka’s entire WWE career thus far, from her rise through NXT (including her 510 day NXT Women’s Championship reign) through her main roster debut on the RAW brand.
“My story follows Asuka from her debut in NXT to RAW where she is today,” says writer Tini Howard. “I can’t help but love Asuka—she’s a larger-than-life character that has captivated the WWE Universe around the world.”
“Nobody is ready for Asuka—in the ring, no one can match the powerful ‘Empress of Tomorrow,’” artist Hyeonjin Kim says. “It’s a thrilling experience to be able to draw her sheer force on paper. I hope the readers can feel the action.”
BOOM! Studios Associate Editor Chris Rosa says, “It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a Superstar start their career with an undefeated streak that spanned over one hundred matches. Once Asuka’s debut on the Monday Night RAW roster was announced for TLC, it was clear the time was now to tell her story, and Tini and Hyeonjin are the perfect team to do it.”
