OK be still my comic book loving hip-hop heart. Ghostface is doing it again this cat has linked with Rza and blackmask studios to create a comicbook to further illustrate the story being spoken about on his upcoming concept album”Twelve reasons to die”. This my friends is how you release a concept album in the days of digital downloads. I haven’t been this excited about an album since the 90’s folks and you should be too given the artist track record and the Rza’s attention to detail. Peep the new single and some art panels from the book above and below. I also included a brief synopsis from black mask studios web page. Enjoy!
Synopsis: This horror-crime hybrid is the latest comic book from the legendary Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA and Ghostface Killah.
A brutal tale of gangsters, betrayal, and one vengeful soul hunting the 12 most powerful crimelords in the world.
It is illustrated by a rotating team of artists starting with Riley Rossmo (Bedlam), Tim Seeley (Hack/Slash), Joe Infurnari (Mush!), Kyle Strahm (Haunt), Gus Storms & Breno Tamura (Pigs), and more to be announced; written by Matthew Rosenberg & Patrick Kindlon (MENU).
Covers by Paolo Rivera (Daredevil), Ramon Perez (Tale of Sand, Wolverine & The X-Men), Ronald Wimberly (Prince of Cats), Garry Brown (The Massive), and Christopher Mitten (30 Days of Night).
*12 Reasons To Die is a multi-platform, transmedia concept project with a storyline that spans from the comic book to the new Ghostface Killah album released simultaneously by RZA’s Soul Temple Records.*
