Published Jul 10, 2009Easily and best known for his part in NYC hip-hop crew the Wu-Tang Clan, Ghostface Killah has decided to emerge from the gravel pit to co-write a graphic novel entitled Cell Block Z. Killah teamed up with authors Marion Chapman and Shauna Garr, as well as illustrator Chris Walker to create comic, which tells the tale of a boxer with his back against the wall. However, we won't know which wall until it's released on July 29.
A description was given by the Hachette Book Group:
To his fans, Cole Dennis is a heavyweight contender with a devastating right hook. To a city being held hostage to 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 superprison whose masters secretly conspire to turn inmates into tomorrow's most terrifying bioweapons - 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 his cry of righeous rage will echo beyond the cold steel walls of Cell Block Z.
Clearly this graphic novel is based on a true story, or some subconscious thought.
