Earlier this year, will.i.am and the Black Eyed Peas shook up the comics world with the announcement of Masters of the Sun: The Zombie Chronicles. Today, we’re excited to share that this hip hop-infused sci-fi vision of Los Angeles is coming to Gear VR in 2018!
Blending animation and the aesthetics of our favorite splash pages, Masters of the Sun explores the harsh reality of daily life in America’s urban enclaves. Aliens attack, releasing a curse that turns drug dealers and gangbangers into zombies. Armed with a deep love of hip-hop culture, Zulu-X must work together with his crew to unlock the mysteries of an ancient order and save their city.
With a story by will.i.am and a star-studded vocal cast including Queen Latifah, Jamie Foxx, Rakim, Ice T, and more, Masters of the Sun combines themes as diverse as Egyptology and gang culture with social critique to impressive effect. We can’t wait to share the final experience in January.
If you aren’t woke yet, you will be.
