Well, new details for the comic book, titled The Weeknd Presents: Starboy – Vol. I – Issue 1, have been revealed.  

According to the comics website NewsaramaStarboy will center around a fictional city called Alphatron, which is in the grip of a crime wave led by a villainous cannibal named Jack “The Chef” Smiley. 

Can Starboy save the day?   

Well, as the blurb notes, “The city is in dire need of a hero. It will not get one……but it will get what it deserves.”

The Weeknd is listed as a co-writer of Starboy, which is based on the singer’s hit single of the same name.

As previously reported, the “Earned It” entertainer announced the comic on Twitter before his appearance at New York Comic Con last year.  

Starboy is set to drop in June.
