WWE alumna AJ Lee and Lucifer co-star Aimee Garcia are teaming up for the latest GLOW story to hit the comic book page. THR reports that Lee (aka AJ Mendez) and Garcia will be writing a monthly comic book series based on the Netflix show, which will arrive this fall.

Hannah Templer is returning to provide art for the series, with Lee and Garcia writing a “GLOW vs. The Babyface” arc. It will feature the women of GLOW facing “a new unexpected nemesis – a news anchor who is determined to convince everyone that wrestling can and will corrupt the youth of America. While the women of GLOW struggle to convince everyone, and themselves, that they’re not a bad influence on kids, they become responsible for a run-away preteen that has been living under their wrestling ring.”

The series launches in November, with the first issue featuring covers from Catherine Nodet, Nicole Goux and Veronica Fish.

“As huge fans of the Netflix series, Aimee and I are thrilled and honored to get our hands on the ladies of GLOW,” Lee said in a statement. “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.”
