WWE The New Day: Power of Positivity is a two-issue limited series launching in July featuring Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods.

The series is written by Evan Narcisse and Austin Walker and illustrated by artist Daniel Bayliss.

The fan-favorite trio has held 11 tag team championships in WWE, including the longest reign ever - 483 days.

According to Boom!, the series will allow fans to discover "the origins and struggles of the three WWE Superstars before that fateful day when they realized they were together than apart."

WWE The New Day: Power of Positivity #1 features main cover art by Bayliss and variant cover art by Rahzzah and Ernanda Souza.

"Collaborating with my colleague Austin Walker so we could tap into the personalities of the New Day to tell the origin story of this history-making trio has been an incredibly enriching experience," says Narcisse in the announcement.

"We tried to write a love letter to an unseen side of WWE history, and I'm so excited that WWE fans everywhere will finally be able to read how Kofi, Xavier, and Big E came together to form sports entertainment's most electrifying tag team."

Walker says when he and Narcisse started planning the series, they realized right away that it was a "perfect fit."

"Kofi, Big E, and Xavier are as extraordinary as the very best comic book heroes, and their journey from up-and-coming underdogs to de facto superstars is one of struggle, identity, and perseverance," adds Walker. "All of that, plus bright and vivid art from Daniel Bayliss? That's a dream match if ever there was one."

The New Day are kind of superheroes but they don’t really have superpowers. Newsarama looks at the best powerless superheroes of all time.

I'm not just the Newsarama founder and editor-in-chief, I'm also a reader. And that reference is just a little bit older than the beginning of my Newsarama journey. I founded what would become the comic book news site in 1996, and except for a brief sojourn at Marvel Comics as its marketing and communications manager in 2003, I've been writing about new comic book titles, creative changes, and occasionally offering my perspective on important industry events and developments for the 25 years since. Despite many changes to Newsarama, my passion for the medium of comic books and the characters makes the last quarter-century (it's crazy to see that in writing) time spent doing what I love most.
