Have no fear; Marijuanaman is here!

Grammy Award-winning musician Ziggy Marley, son of reggae legend Bob, is entering the world of comic book super heroes. Marijuanaman, the character conceived of by Marley (and I can probably guess what he was doing at the time), will be written by comic veteran Joe Casey and illustrated by Jim Mahfood.

According to the book's publisher, Image Comics, this "promises to shatter all expectations -- this is not the comic you think it is! The oversized deluxe hardcover graphic novel tells the tale of a noble extraterrestrial champion, who has arrived on Earth to deliver an important message and at the same time save his own planet."

As Marley explains, "Marijuanaman represents the hope of the future...the hope that we will utilize all of the power that the universe has given us to save our planet." I'm not really sure what any of that means, but I guess we can find out when the 48-page hardcover book hits the shelves on April 20.

Oh, and Ziggy, if you're reading this, I have the perfect name for a sidekick: Munchy.
