The Weeknd and Marvel announced the release of Starboy comic after his November 2016 album.
The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, made a special appearance at Comic Con on Saturday (Oct. 7) to reveal the news and announce its release for 2018.
According to Pigeons & Planes report on Tesfaye’s interview with Zane Lowe last year, Tesfaye expressed his desire to create a comic out of his Starboy persona.
“He’s [Starboy] a character that we created. It’s so funny, we want to create a comic out of him, as well. ” Tesfaye said. “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 braggadocious character that we all have inside of us.”
