Hip-hop supergroup Czarface has always drawn heavy inspiration from superhero comics, so it’s only fitting that their music becomes the inspiration for an original graphic novel dubbed Czarface: A Czar Is Born.

With the graphic novel hitting stores on November 2, IGN can exclusively debut a new preview of the comic. Check it out in the slideshow gallery below:

Czarface: A Czar Is Born is published by Z2 Comics, co-written by band member Seamus “Esoteric” Ryan and Chris Robinson (Limbo Beach) and drawn by Ariel Olivetti (Punisher: War Journal). The book aims to provide an origin story for the Czarface character. Here’s the official description:

Hero to some, villain to others, Czarface’s true origins have remained a mystery…UNTIL NOW! Who are the Zarta Ku? And why has their desperate mission brought them to Planet Earth? Meanwhile, Zach and his dog were just a washed up wrestling tag team making ends meet on the comicon circuit when they crossed paths with a woman who will change both their lives forever. Written by Czarface’s own Esoteric (Merry X-Men Holiday Special) with art by veteran illustrator Ariel Olivetti (Cable; Punisher War Journal), this landmark original graphic novel is a must-have for Wednesday warriors, wrestling marks, and hip-hop heads–or fans of all three combined!

“We started to build a discography around raw hip-hop, influenced by Silver Age era comics and all things pop culture, and created the character Czarface as a visual representation to symbolize it,” Ryan tells IGN. “So many people responded positively to the character, and the somewhat extracurricular parts, such as the collectible Czarface action figures, that I wanted to give this version of him the origin story he deserves in an OGN!”

Czarface: A Czar Is Born will be released on Tuesday, November 2. You can preorder the book through Amazon and various other retailers.
