Titan Publishing has secured a new partnership with World Wrestling Entertainment which will see it launching a new collection of WWE comics.

Over the course of the agreement, 20 issues will be produced and distributed to comic retailers and specialty stores in the US and Canada.

Flagship title will be WWE Heroes featuring WWE Superstars and Divas, with the first issue debuting on March 23rd 2010.

The comic series will take the characters - including Undertaker, Batista, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk and Kelly Kelly - out of the ring and into a new fictional universe.

"Each week more than 1.6 million teens watch WWE programming on television in the US," said Ned Hartley, editor of WWE Heroes. "This is an important demographic for the comic book industry and vital for a successful launch in the industry.

"We've got some truly amazing stories to tell - our first issue is going to blow you away. The 'in your face, no holds barred' attitude of the WWE works so well as a comic, we just can't wait for people to see the great surprises that we've got in store."
