In the latest episode from their vlogging channel, Lana and Rusev revealed that they will be co-writing their first comic book together. The comic book will be called Dark Country. Keeping the project under wraps, they declined to divulge anymore information apart from the title.
The WWE couple will be working on it with Jason Starr. Starr is perhaps best known for his work with both DC Comics and Marvel on works such as Wolverine Max and Punisher Max. Starr has also produced novels based on Marvel’s Ant Man character and DC/FOX show, Gotham.
Furthermore, the real life couple announced that they are holding a contest for aspiring comic book artist. In search of designers and artists to illustrate their story, Lana and Rusev suggest curious viewers to submit their portfolio to [email protected] Winners for the paid opportunity will be chosen on May 15.
Considering the couple’s recent vocal frustrations with the company, it’s interesting to see them invest in non-WWE opportunities such as this. Perhaps it’s an attempt to add to their stock in case they do decide to walk away from WWE.
Stay tuned with Diva Dirt for future updates regarding winners for the contest and more details on the couple’s comic.
