Thu, 07 May 2009 11:00:02
The full-court-press push behind Eminem's upcoming Relapse album (due out May 19) has expanded to the unlikely realm of comic books. Written by Fred Van Lente and drawn by Salvador Larroca, Eminem/Punisher: Kill You is split into two parts. The first is in the June issue of XXL, and the second is available for free on Marvel's official website here. A portion of the plot, according to rollingstone.com: "After a concert, Eminem's posse is gunned down by the Punisher. Slim Shady manages to escape with his old convict friend Barracuda and take refuge in a safe house. The Punisher finds them, but Eminem guns down the Punisher first." Enter many twists and turns, and a bit of the ultra-violence.
In other Relapse news, yet another new song ("Old Time's Sake") just dropped on iTunes.
