Ovie Mughelli To Make Comics
Ovie Mughelli knows how to keep busy during the NFL Players Strike.
The Pro Bowl fullback for the Atlanta Falcons, will be announcing his own comics property in the coming weeks. The project is being developed in conjunction with writer Clifford Meth (Snaked from IDW) and artist Michael Netzer (Batman, Superboy, Web of Spider-Man). Mughelli, who had a breakout 2010 Pro Bowl season, signed a six-year, $18 million contract with a $5 million signing bonus in 2007 with the Falcons, the largest contract given to a fullback in NFL history at the time.
I suspect a lot of comics stores will be carrying his book– after all, do you want to tell this guy no?
