Tyrese Gibson, actor, singer/songwriter/rapper/ex-model seems to be entering the comic book world with a gusto rarely seen amongst movie/music celebs who are happy to put their name to a project, do a panel at San Diego, mention it once on Letterman, sign a few copies then sit back and wait till the royalty/movie option rolls in.
Tyrese seems a little more… intense about his Image comic, Mayhem. On Twitter he announced yesterday;
COMIC BOOK BREAKING NEWS!! JIM LEE is confirmed to do a FULL WRAP AROUND GRAPHIC NOVEL COVER for MAYHEM! The Cover Unveiled at Comi-Con!
He is as well. Jim Lee wrote;
Working with @Tyrese4ReaL on a wraparound cover for Mayhem! Gonna pull out all the stops on this baby!!! Stay tuned! Layout this weekend!
Then Tyrese followed this with;
OHHHH SSHIIIIITTTTT MAYHEM made it to CNN!!!! WooooooW!! http://bit.ly/jP0YI
Got a dinner with Grant Morrison coming this week..!! Comic book legend! Research is everything people!! I wanna know all about this world!
Oh for a webcam on that table. The big question is… what will Tyrese Gibson’s Sailor Moon cosplay costume look like? I mean, surely that’s the next step?
