Ziggy Marley Developing Marijuanaman Comic

February 4, 2011 (6:38 am) GMT
His comic's main character would be 'a noble extraterrestrial champion, who has arrived on Earth to deliver an important message.'

New dad is set to become the latest celebrity comic book author after landing a release date for his Marijuanaman series. The Grammy Award-winning reggae star, who became a dad again last month, has teamed with Image Comics to turn his graphic novel idea into reality.

The project chronicles the tale of "a noble extraterrestrial champion, who has arrived on Earth to deliver an important message and at the same time save his own planet". Marley says, "Marijuanaman represents the hope of the future... the hope that we will utilise all of the power that the universe has given us to save our planet."

The book will be in comic stores in April.
