Two from the Wu discover transmedia in this comic/album/other stuff hybrid from Black Mask Studios.
’Face and the RZA created this supernatural crime/action/giallo about a vengeful spirit out to take down a dozen of the biggest bosses in the world, with Ghostface set to “star” in the comic and the RZA producing. “Trip City Menu” writers Matthew Rosenberg and Patrick Kindlon are on the script with pretty much a murderer’s row of art talent on board including Nate Powell, Tyler Crook, Ron Wimberly, and Ben Templesmith (I’ve included the full list of rotating interior and cover artists below):
Tim Seeley (Revival, Hack/Slash)
Paolo Rivera (Daredevil)
Francesco Francavilla (Black Beetle, Detective Comics)
Ramon Perez (Tale of Sand)
Ben Templesmith (30 Days Of Night)
Riley Rossmo (Bedlam)
Garry Brown (The Massive)
Jim Mahfood (Tank Girl)
Kyle Strahm (Haunt)
Toby Cypress (Blue Estate)
Tyler Crook (B.P.R.D.)
Joe Infurnari (Mush!)
Breno Tamura (Pigs)
Nate Powell (Swallow Me Whole)
Gus Storms (Space Creep)
Chris Mitten (30 Days of Night)
Ron Wimberly (Prince of Cats).
This is the latest non-musical project for RZA following his filmmaking debut last year with the martial arts flick “The Man With the Iron Fists.” Like that film, “12 Ways to Die” seems to be a mix of all of the one-time Bobby Digital’s influences including crime films and Italian slashers from the 60s and 70s.
The first issue of “12 Reasons to Die” will be on shelves May 29.
