As if retired professional wrestler CM Punk's first job wasn't the coolest thing to every kid in America, his new one just might be.

Now that CM Punk has retired from WWE, he will be penning comic books for Marvel, starting with a storyline for Thor. He talked with Ryan Penagos of Marvel.com about how things have gone so far:

I think it helps that I picked [an] artist who I was already friends with, and can speak freely to. I think he’ll get it, you know what I mean? I think the e-mails that we’ve sent back and forth now regarding the story, you could probably print. I just think they’re entertaining. “Hey, what if we do this?” and it turns into the next big e-mail chain. It’s hilarious.

The Thor Annual is scheduled to be released in February.
