Ahead of his performance at New York Comic Con on Saturday, The Weeknd confirmed an upcoming collaboration with Marvel Comics.
The XO frontman previously hinted at the project in an interview with Zane Lowe in November, before teasing an announcement on his Twitter and Instagram accounts last week. Confirming the news, the Weekend wrote: “The Weeknd and Marvel presents: STARBOY… comic book coming soon.” In addition, he provided a look at the first magazine.
Judging by the cover above, we can look forward to the inaugural issue of Starboy arriving at some point early next year. It’s not the first time Marvel has dipped its toe into the hip-hop world, having reimagined classic album sleeves in 2015 and 2016.
Recently, The Weeknd presented his second collaboration with H&M.
