You read that right. The House of Ideas is teaming with the band behind My Humps, The Black Eyed Peas for an original graphic novel, titled Masters of the Sun -- The Zombie ChroniclesWill.i.am is writing the book, with Benjamin Jackendoff and Damion Scott on art. The book "begins with the city of Los Angeles under attack by aliens, while humans are morphing into zombies," nailing every single trope available. 

"Few artists have done more to embed hip-hop in popular culture than will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas. So we are thrilled to present this deeply personal story that speaks directly to hip-hop aficionados, comic book fans and the intersection of those communities," Marvel editor Axel Alonso tells Billboard.

The book is street dated for July.
