WWE Diva & “National Lampoon’s Strip Poker” Costar to Make Comic Book Debut

Leilene – Who Wowed Audiences as WWE Diva Alexis – Set to Star in New Silent Devil Comic

Date: 8/09/05

(LOS ANGELES, CA) – As a “National Lampoon’s Strip Poker” costar, Leilene battled supermodels, bad beats, and the advances of National Lampoon poker commentator Kato Kaelin. As a WWE Diva Search contestant, Leilene – going by the alias Alexis – rubbed shoulders with man-mountain Batista and competed in Sergeant Slaughter’s Bikini Boot Camp. And now, as a Silent Devil comic book character, Leilene is set to wage war against the most diabolical of foes: Mr. Nova – a misogynistic, hard-drinking, interplanetary playboy – in an upcoming graphic novel!

“In 2005, I was a poker-playing badass with National Lampoon and a cocky, sexy diva in the WWE – but really, being transformed into a comic book warrior by the amazing artists at Silent Devil is just the icing on the cake of an amazing year for me,” boasted Leilene. “Silent Devil showcases some of the most outrageous storylines and compelling artwork in the entire graphic novel industry, and as an independent brand, they’re willing to take risks that others wouldn’t even dare to contemplate. Well, that sort of philosophy suits my personality perfectly!”

Silent Devil cofounder and Editor-in-Chief Christian Beranek was delighted to adapt Leilene into his comic books. “We take great pride in pushing the envelope, taking risks, and offering our readers stories and characters they simply can’t find anywhere else,” said Beranek. “Leilene is our kind of girl – beautiful and sexy, but also capable of annihilating evildoers from across the galaxy. She’s a welcome addition to the Silent Devil family of unorthodox characters, and audiences are going to absolutely flip when they see renowned artist Jeff Bracey’s adaptation of her!”

Other Silent Devil characters include Mäk – a vampire alcoholic dog, and Caucasian Brown – a former pimp turned private investigator. Beranek refused to detail the plot or storyline in Leilene’s comic book debut, only promising that National Lampoon and WWE fans “won’t be disappointed.”
