Comic Con 2013: Rampage Jackson: 'Street Soldier' comic book launches in San Diego

Noel Vasquez

San Diego Comic Con just got 100 percent tougher.

MMA fans who also can't get enough comic books just hit the jackpot.

That's because Quinton Jackson, the former undisputed Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion, will be hitting up San Diego Comic Con this week to promote his new comic book "Street Soldier."

A press release issued earlier today has the details:

Rampage Jackson: Street Soldier follows the adventures of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson as he gains powers from a meteorite and decides to use them for good. When good people end up in bad situations, Rampage has no problem getting ugly to set things right!

Playing an anti-hero wouldn't be too much of a stretch as the Memphis native has had his share of run-ins and misunderstandings throughout his lengthy career.

Jackson parted ways with UFC earlier this year and signed a massive deal with Bellator MMA, TNA and Viacom. Some of the perks include more freedom, which has allowed Jackson to make his debut in professional wrestling and perhaps led to this upcoming comic book series.

According to the release, production company Lion Forge will print a stand-alone issue of Rampage Jackson: Street Soldier in August. The series will officially launch in October.
