The day has come!! Comic book fans and XO fans can now buy the a special edition of the The Weeknd Presents: Starboy exclusively though his website here. Entertainment Weekly posted an exclusive preview of the issue on Wednesday (April 18), a couple of months before. A variant cover for the first issue with a black background instead of red goes on sale today and includes an online version, according to a tweet/a from The Weeknd himself. The original version goes on sale June 13 and will also be in stores.
The comic book is only $5.99 + shipping and each customer can only purchase up to five. (So dont go over-bored right now.) lol Starboy features The Weeknd as the titular character, an on-page adaptation of his famed persona — and was written by the rapper too, under his real name Abel Tesfaye, with La Mar Taylor and Christos Gate. Tesfaye previously named a song and album after Starboy, of course. The comic promises to follow Starboy as he battles a “cannibalistic criminal mastermind” known as Jack “The Chef” Smiley to save the city of Alphatron.
