The Weeknd appeared at New York Comic-Con on Saturday (October 7) for the unveiling of Starboy, his comic book collaboration with Marvel.
The R&B/Pop singer gave fans a sneak peek at the cover art and judging by the looks of it, it is going to be fire!
In a 2016 interview, The Weeknd told Zane Lowe of Beats 1 Radio it was part of his plans to further explore the Starboy character.
“Starboy is the next chapter in this chronicle, this saga,” the Canadian singer said. “I guess this is the fourth chapter. He’s a character that we created. It’s so funny, we want to create a comic out of him as well.”
The comic book title obviously comes from The Weeknd song and album of the same name, but The Weeknd explained to Lowe that Starboy is more than just an abstract concept. “He’s a cool, dope character that makes appearances a lot on the album,” he said. “He’s definitely made his appearance in different records in the past as well. He’s a more braggadocious character that we all have inside of us.”
The comic book is set to debut in 2018.
