DF: You had your own comic published recently. What was it like doing Christopher Daniels and Kazarian Wrestling Aw Yeah Comics! which featured you and your tag team partner, Frankie Kazarian?
Christopher Daniels: It was a real blast, and no matter what happens in my career from this day forth, I’ll always be able to say that I’m a published comic book writer. I was so excited during the process of getting it published, and the day I first held an actual copy in my hand was a feeling I’ll never forget.
DF: What was the process like?
Christopher Daniels: Well, in 2011, at the San Diego Comic-Con, I had the opportunity to meet with Art Baltazar and Franco, who at that point were already award winning artists and creators of Tiny Titans and Superman Family Adventures for DC Comics. They told me that they were wrestling fans and enjoyed my work with TNA and IMPACT Wrestling. We kept in touch the next few years, and soon after, they did a Kickstarter campaign to fund their own publishing company, which ended up becoming Aw Yeah Comics. At another convention, they gave Frankie and me some copies of their first few issues, and that was where I was introduced to their characters of Action Cat, Adventure Bug and Awesome Bear.
Soon after that, I had an idea to write a story where Frankie and I interacted with these Aw Yeah characters, and I sat down and wrote the story out pretty quickly. I sent the script over to Chris Smits, one of the gentlemen responsible for getting the Aw Yeah Kickstarter going, and asked if they’d be interested in producing this comic book. To my sheer delight, Art and Franco were excited to do it, and it was soon after that that they sat right down and made it happen!
DF: What is on the wrestling horizon for the King of the Indies?
Christopher Daniels: Well, I’ve just recently announced my return to Ring of Honor, one of my favorite promotions to work for. I’ve also lined up a few international dates coming up in England, Scotland, Canada and perhaps even Japan.
