When the news broke out that his starry character would be turned into a superhero comic, he was more than excited.

"Marvel is the pinnacle of success in their field and I’ve been a lifelong fan of their work. To be able to partner with them is a dream come true."

In reference to the plot of the comic, Marvel provided some background info

"The city of Alphatron is in the grip of a crime wave, as the terrifying Jack 'The Chef' Smiley has unified all criminal organizations with his ruthlessness and strategic genius. Not content with brutally murdering his victims, Smiley also feasts upon their flesh. The citizens live in fear and the police have been directly targeted," explains the comic book junkie. "The city is in dire need of a hero. It will not get one, but it will get what it deserves: Starboy!"

Hope your ready to enter a world created by The Weeknd in THE WEEKND PRESENTS: STARBOY – Vol. I – Issue #1, by Abel “The Weeknd” Tesfaye, La Mar Taylor, Christos Gage, Eric Nguyen, and Guru-eFX, on June 13!
