Ghostface Pens Comic Book

Following in Wu-Tang brethren Method Man’s footsteps, Ghostface Killah has written a comic book set for release from the Hachete Book Group later this month.

According to the book company’s website, Cell Block Z, tells the story of a one-time boxing contender who gets wrongfully arrested for murder. Once locked up, the man who shares a blatantly similar name to Ghost, Cole Dennis, finds out about an evil plan to turn inmates into bioweapons.

Ghost got a helping hand from L.A.-based screenwriters Marlon Chapman and Shaunna Garr as well as Chris Walker (Marvel, Bad Boy, Adidas), who handled the book’s illustrations.

Cell Block Z is set to hit stands on July 29.

Ghost is not the only Wu-Tang MC to get his own comic book. Last year partner-in-rhyme Method Man dropped his own graphic novel on Hachete and Sky Farm Studios is currently working on a new book titled Attack of the Brooklyn Super Ninjas, starring The Rza.

In related news the Shaolin rap staple is currently working on his new R&B flavored album, The Wizard of Poetry. The disc will feature a long list of hip-hop crooners including John Legend, Musiq Soulchild, Lloyd, Estelle and Raheem DeVaughn and is set to come out some time this fall. –Elan Mancini

    A graphic novel is a little different than a comic book. Comic books are associated with Superheroes, while graphic novels focus is on the story’s characters and atmosphere. the panel illustrations are secondary. For example Incognegro by Mat Wilson is about a lixed reporter from the North who can pass as white and gets exclusive reports about race crimes in the Jim Crow south for a big Newspaper under the alias ‘Ingognegro’ lol Shit like that is what graphic novels be like son.

    If you dont know too much about Graphic Novels, I suggest 300 though its short,and various Sin City novellas by Frank Miller also Grant Morisson’s The Invisibles, 100 Bullets is some gangsta type shit and so on and so fourth. Ghostface is a superb story teller, I cant wait for this shit! Im buyin.
