2009-07-14 - Ghostface Killah comicThe Wu’s Ghostface Killah is set to be immortalized in a comic book of his own, by him and featuring him.

The upcoming comic/graphic novel is titled Cell Block Z, featuring a boxer character named Cole Dennis who is framed for a crime he didn’t commit.

Here’s the summary, via the publisher: To his fans, Cole Dennis is a heavyweight contender with a devastating right hook. To a city being held hostage by chaos and terror, Dennis has a grit and charisma that make him the shining hope for justice—until he is arrested for a brutal murder. Framed for a crime he did not commit, he finds himself captive in a foreboding high-tech super prison whose masters secretly conspire with the government to turn inmates into tomorrow’s most terrifying bio-weapons — with Cole Dennis as the intended prize specimen. But Dennis is nobody’s lab rat. Reborn as a towering engine of destruction, Dennis will prepare for the fight of his life. He will rename himself Ghostface Killah and with his righteous rage stop these madmen.

The book is illustrated by Marvel’s Chris Walker and screenwriters Marlon Chapman and Shauna Garr helped the rapper pen the story.

Cell Block Z will hit bookstores on July 29, via Hachette Book Group.
