Entertainment Weekly just revealed an exclusive first look at The Weeknd’s graphic novel Starboy, a unique collaboration between Marvel Comics and the R&B star (real name: Abel Tesfaye). The first issue of Starboy is out in June.
First announced at New York Comic Con last October, Starboy is a translation of The Weeknd’s “Starboy” musical persona into a superhero comic (it shares a title with the artist’s 2016 album). Written by Tesfaye himself alongside La Mar Taylor and Christos Gate (with art by Eric Nguyen and Guru-eFX), Starboy features the titular character battling a cannibalistic criminal mastermind known as Jack “The Chef” Smiley in order to save Alphatron.
