Tyrese Gibson, the Multi-Platinum selling R&B singer and mega-star behind Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Death Race and 2 Fast 2 Furious, comes full force to comics with ANGEL artist Tone Rodriguez and co-writers Mike Le & William Wilson in August’s three-issue action packed thriller, MAYHEM!
“I am extremely excited to be working with Image Comics on the launching my debut comic book MAYHEM,” Gibson said.Â “Image has a long and rich history of great titles and I am honored to be apart of that history.Â Robert Kirkman’s and Eric Stepheson’s input throughout this creative process has been invaluable and I know we’ve produced a special comic book for all fans to enjoy.”
Tyrese Gibson’s MAYHEM begins on the streets of Los Angeles, wherein a brutal crime wave led by the mysterious Big X has the entire city in a state of perpetual fear. With even the police force unable to stop him, MAYHEM, a faceless vigilante with only his partner Malice and an unrelenting vengeance to back him up, strikes back against theÂ criminal hordes. Within three issues of non-stop action, they will take on Big X to dismantle his organization and restore peace to the City of Angels.
Image Comics Chief Operating Officer and WALKING DEAD writer Robert Kirkman added, “With the entertainment world at large currently bowing at the feet of comics and its ideas, it’s incredibly exciting to have a media mastermind like Tyrese Gibson turning his attention our way. MAYHEM is a unique, engaging comic-book experience that could only come from the mind of someone who’s risen to the top of so many different fields–anxious to take another by storm. Ready or not, Tyrese Gibson is in the house–and it’s going to be MAYHEM!”
MAYHEM #1, a thirty-two page full color comic book for $2.99, will be in stores August 5th.
