IDW Announces GLOW Vs. The Babyface Tie-In To Netflix Series

by James Ferguson

The Netflix Original comedy series, GLOW is getting a little bigger. We’ve already seen a comic from IDW Publishing. That will be joined by GLOW vs. The Babyface, a four-issue mini-series beginning in November from writers Aimee Garcia and AJ Mendez and artist Hannah Templer.

Writer Aimee Garcia says:

I’m a HUGE fan of GLOW. I grew up reading comics and never saw myself represented in them, so I’m excited to explore these trailblazing characters and create the change for the next generation. AJ and I are basically writing for our younger selves.

GLOW vs. The Babyface has the GLOW wrestlers preparing for a new foe…a news anchor. They learn the art of the promo in an effort to convince the media that GLOW isn’t a bad influence on children. They find a different kind of problem in the form of a runaway who’s been living under the ring. The preteen girl finds herself in the care of L.A.’s least qualified babysitters.

Writer AJ Mendez adds:

As huge fans of the Netflix series, Aimee and I are thrilled and honored to get our hands on the ladies of GLOW. Aimee’s experience in acting and my experience in pro-wrestling makes us a formidable tag team with a unique perspective to truly channel the voices of these hilarious heroines. Our mission as writing partners is to represent diverse, complex, and unbreakable female characters, which is why GLOW feels like the perfect fit.

GLOW vs. The Babyface #1 will feature a cover by Veronica Fish, another by Nicole Goux, and a retailer incentive cover by Catherine Nodet.

Editors Elizabeth Brei and Megan Brown say:

GLOW has been such an incredible treat to work on, and we’re thrilled to have two amazing, talented women in Aimee and AJ (both of whom we’re huge fans of!) join the family. With their incredibly funny and smart writing and Hannah coming back to continue wowing us with her hilarious cartooning, GLOW vs. The Babyface is going to be another great chapter in the GLOW storybook!

GLOW vs. The Babyface #1 is set for release in November 2019.
