Tony Schiavone is doing a graphic novel based on his life, and it’s already reached its funding goal on Kickstarter. The AEW announcer is co-writing Butts in Seats: The Tony Schiavone Story, a graphic novel which documents his career in wrestling. The book is co-written with Dirk Manning and launched this morning at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET. As of this writing, the book has already reached its $20,000 goal and is currently up to $31,040.

The project, which you can contribute to here is described as follows:

“BUTTS IN SEATS: THE TONY SCHIAVONE STORY is a ten chapter graphic novel retrospective of Tony’s whole life and career written by Dirk Manning with Tony Schiavone, with each chapter illustrated by a different artist handpicked to best portray that stage of Tony’s life and career — both inside and outside professional wrestling! “
