The Weeknd unveiled the cover and several pages from his upcoming Marvel comic book, The Weeknd Presents: Starboy. The issue is set to arrive June 13th.

Based on the Weeknd’s 2016 album of the same name, Starboy tells the story of the titular hero facing off against the cannibal criminal mastermind, Jack “The Chef” Smiley, who’s been terrorizing the city of Alphatron. The excerpts from the comic feature Starboy brooding in a night club, meeting with a scientist in his lab and appearing at a press conference in front of the citizens of Alphatron.

The Weeknd co-wrote Starboy with La Mar Taylor and Christos Gage, while Eric Nguyen and Guru-eFX handled the art.
