First look at The Weeknd's Starboy comic book

Canadian singer/songwriter The Weeknd finally unveiled a first look on his first comic book, The Weeknd Presents: Starboy. It is a unique collaboration between Marvel Comics and R&B star The Weeknd (Abel Tesfaye). The first issue of Starboy is out in June, but EW has an exclusive first look at the graphic novel.

Written by The Weeknd, his creative director, La Mar Taylor and Christos Gage with art from Eric Nguyen and Guru-eFX, the comic takes place in the fictional city of Alphatron where the antagonist Jack "The Chef" Smiley has spiked the crime in the city and "unified all criminal organizations with his ruthlessness and strategic genius." "The Chef" is a brutal character that not only murders his victims but cannibalizes their bodies.

Entertainment Weekly posted an exclusive preview of the issue on Wednesday (April 18). A variant cover for the first issue with a black background instead of red goes on sale Friday and includes an online version, according to a tweet from The Weeknd himself.

The first issue of Starboy hits stores on June 13, but a variant cover for the first issue (with a black background instead of red) goes on sale April 19. Check out the preview of the issue below.
