Here's an exclusive look at the first issue of Ghostface Killah's comic Twelve Reasons To Die

In April, Ghostface Killah partnered with composer Adrian Younge on Twelve Reasons To Die, an album-length narrative that showcased Ghostface's love of gritty B-movies and revenge fantasies, and now Black Mask Studios is offering up a companion piece to the album in the form of the Twelve Reasons To Die comic series.

Writers Patrick Kindlon and Matthew Rosenberg constructed a six-issue arc that sees a veritable who's-who of illustrators contributing art, with Breno Tamura (Pigs) and Gus Storms (Space Creep) kicking off the first issue. Twelve Reasons To Die doesn't rehash the album's success. Instead, it offers up a compelling look at the work of Ghostface and Younge in an ongoing form. 

The first Twelve Reasons To Die book comes out Wednesday, May 8, but we've got an exclusive look at the first 11 pages. Check 'em out.
