Chicago Bears Defensive Lineman Israel Idonije Has A New #Comic Book
Chicago Bears defensive end Israel Idonije knows something about heroics on the football field. Now he’s bringing that sense of heroism to his first comic project, titled The Protectors, and he’s bringing the acclaimed creative team of writer Ron Marz and artist Bart Sears with him.
A fan of comic books since childhood, Idonije began creating The Protectors at Bears training camp in 2007, and went on to create his own Athleta Comics publishing imprint to appeal to sports fans and comic book fans alike. Announced at the recent New York Comic Con, The Protectors comic will debut at Chicago’s C2E2 convention in April.
“This is a project of love and one of the most exciting things in which I’ve been involved,” Idonije said. “To hold the actual graphic novel in my hands has been my dream since 2007 when I literally sat down with the concept in my head and began writing it on my notepad.”
