More black-nerd news: Common recently announced that he will create an original multimedia comic series called Caster.

The series will be available exclusively on Line Webtoon’s site and app.

Common will be creating an original score and song for the series and lending his likeness to the main character of Caster, a ‚Äúman of exotic taste‚ÄĚ addicted to risk. He‚Äôs a world-traveling, rare-antiques dealer who gets caught up in a world of international espionage.

According to a press release:

‚ÄėCaster‚Äô is an original concept created by the team at Noble Transmission, with story by Austin Harrison (Wild Blue Yonder), Zach Howard (Wild Blue Yonder, TMNT, The Cape), and Mike Raicht (Wild Blue Yonder, The Stuff of Legend,). Comic book artist Jason Masters, whose recent credits include Dynamite‚Äôs critically acclaimed James Bond with writer Warren Ellis and Marvel‚Äôs Guardians of the Galaxy, is developing art for the series with scripts by Mike Raicht.

‚ÄúThe moment I learned about Caster, I knew the story was something special. The main character resonated with me instantly, and I jumped at the chance to bring the comic to life in a more complex way through music,‚ÄĚ Common says.


Caster will debut on Line Webtoon in early 2018.
