The Black Eyed Peas had a new graphic novel out from Marvel Comics this summer, written by will.i.am and drawn by Damion Scott. Masters of the Sun – The Zombie Chronicles is a futuristic project that blends science-fiction with hip-hop to appeal to fans of both genres. It mixes L.A. Gang culture, B-Boy-ism and Egyptology to tell the tale of a hip-hop group from East L.A. who must battle an ancient, alien God that turns drug dealers and gangsters into zombies.
But it also comes with an Augmented Reality aspect, which brings in video, animation, and music from the Black Eyed Peas and their friends — from Queen Latifah to Snoop Dogg to Stan Lee. And they are keen to show it all off in this video, courtesy of the boys and girls at Vulture:

Masters Of The Sun mixes L.A. Gang culture, B-Boy-ism and Egyptology to tell the heroic tale of a Hip-Hop group from East L.A. who must battle an ancient, alien God sent to earth to continue a Black Curse which turns drug dealers and gangsters into zombies. With a deep love of the Hip-Hop culture, Zulu-X and his crew go head-to-head with a nefarious ancient order that has infiltrated the inner cities to settle an ancient score. What happens next can only be described as the perfect blend of action, ancient wisdom and street-smarts all rolled into one epic adventure. Boasting one of the most eclectic ensemble cast of characters, Masters of The Sun delivers a powerful social allegory in the form of a new movement… #stayWOKE!!!
