Chris Jericho is set to launch a graphic novel based on his alter-ego, The Painmaker, at Emerald City Comics. Jericho is an actor, former WWE and AEW Champion, musician, best-selling author, podcaster, game show host, and television personality. The graphic novel launches on March 18 with a special event at Emerald Comics in Tampa. The event will begin at 11:00 a.m. and fans who purchase a comic package will also receive a signed poster.

Chris Jericho and Semkhor are collaborating to reimagine the graphic novel as an interactive world and story that extends into the Cryptoverse. Join the Painmaker as he makes his way through a techno-occult landscape seeking power and redemption; A serial killer caught in a cosmic battle and set against an array of obstacles and adversaries. The first story arc focuses on the Painmaker origins. How he gained his powers and the tests he must face as he seeks to become a hero and overcome an ancient evil and his own nature. 

Owners of the comic will also have access to the online blockchain-based version where they can gain access to games, animations, and community. For those who like the collectibility of NFTS, the Painmaker Graphic Novel offers unique limited mints that provide expanded access to the Painmaker Universe. Additional information can be found at
