The Weeknd continues to enjoy the overwhelming success of his latest album Starboy and now teams up with Marvel to create his own comic book.
The STARYBOY comic is inspired by Abel’s alter ago, and although details are scarce at this time, he did reveal the artwork for the first issue via social media earlier today.
The Weeknd touched on his collaboration with Marvel during an interview with Zane Lowe last year stating:
“Starboy is the next chapter in this chronicle, this saga. 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. He’s a cool, dope character that makes appearances a lot on the album. He’s definitely made his appearance in different records in the past as well.”
See The Weeknd’s announcement below and expect the first issue of STARBOY to arrive soon. The album is available on Apple Music now.
