The speculation regarding the nature of the upcoming collaboration between Marvel Comics and The Weeknd turned out to be largely accurate, as we are getting a Starboy comic featuring the adventures of the character first seen in The Weeknd‘s album of the same name last year as well as the attendant music videos and short films.
What will the Starboy comic be like? Only The Weeknd and whoever’s working on the comic book know for sure, but it’s scheduled to be released in some capacity or another sometime next year, according to that joint Marvel x The Weeknd event at New York Comic-Con over the weekend. Speaking of that event, The Weeknd also tweeted a photo of (who else?) himself there, and you can really get a sense of the changes that take place when one gets transformed into a comic book character:
