Beloved WWE Hall of Famer “Rowdy” Roddy Piper will yet again be the feature of a comic book, following his death back in July 2015. This time around, Mess Bucket Comics has announced they’ll be working on the book.
In a confirmation tweet, the comic book publisher announced that Dominic Riggio will be writing the comic, while Erik Hodson (aka Dreaded Dinosaur) will be illustrating the comic.

This was quoted in a tweet by Piper’s official Twitter account, where his wife Kitty confirmed that the project is legitimate. She is looking forward to the creation of the comic book. Judging by the use of language, she could be hinting at the comic being titled “Ever Forward” or “Forever Rowdy.”

In the last few years since his death, a graphical novel was published titled Roddy Piper Monster Hunter, which saw Piper travel the world to hunt and destroy monsters. A book was also published, titled Rowdy: The Roddy Piper Story.
