Ne-Yo album to be accompanied by Stan Lee comic

Ne-Yo’s new album, ‘Libra Scale’, is to be accompanied by a comic book created with legendary comic writer Stan Lee. Which is pretty cool. The videos for the album’s three singles – ‘Beautiful Monster’, ‘Champagne Life’ and ‘One In A Million’ – plus two other album tracks are being turned into a continuous animated story. 

Speaking at The New York Comic Con last Saturday, Lee said: “Basically a really good rapper or really good music is super because people love it – and it inspires a man, it makes him feel great. Reading a really good comic book with super characters does the same thing. And I promised Ne-Yo that I’m gonna make him feel at home and make sure that he feels comfortable with what we’re doing, because he’s a very shy guy! But, seriously, nothing appeals to young people or even older people as much as a good story and good music, so we’re gonna put them both together”.

Speaking the The Daily Star this week, Ne-Yo added: “I’ve been a fan [of Lee’s] for years. I’m trying not to geek-out being with Stan. It’s cool that I can take this comic element of myself and blend it into the R&B element. I got to draw characters myself”.
