After previously teasing the comic in a series of Instagram and Twitter posts earlier in the week, The Weeknd and Marvel Comics finally released their official plans to create the Starboy comic book series.
To tease the new partnership, The Weeknd blacked out his Instagram account with the red hue found on his cover.
The singer made an appearance at New York Comic-Con for the big reveal of the new comic book. While at the Manhattan event, the singer signed autographs and posed for pictures.
In an interview with Zane Lowe, the Canada native said, “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. He’s a more braggadocios character that we all have inside of us.”
We don’t know much else about the comic but based on the cover, issue 1 of the new comic arrives next year.
