CM Punk Joins Marvel Comics

Marvel have unveiled CM Punk as their newest writer.

The former WWE champion – who walked out of the company in January – will write Thor Annual #1 along with artist Rob Guillory.

Marvel’s website have published an interview with Punk, who was asked if being in the wrestling business affected how he would approach his new creative venture;

“You know, I think I’m more suited for it just because I’ve been reading comic books my entire life. Wearing tights in front of thousands of people and kind of, almost play-acting, I think down the road, it might give me some sort of insight depending on what kind of characters I’m writing and what the story is, but I’m not really sure it prepared me so much for being able to script a comic book.”

The full interview is available at Thor Annual #1 will be available in February 2015.
