Ice-T Launches Graphic Novel with Z2 Comics & Associated Animated Series


A murderer’s row of rap talent including Ice-T and NWA’s Arabian Prince is behind a new animated series that features an original score from Dr Dre.


Deadline reports that Death For Hire: The Origin of Tehk City is a project that includes both a graphic novel and animated series.


The project will launch as a graphic novel from Z2 Comics, created by Ice-T, founding NWA member Arabian Prince, and artist Tommy The Animator before the IP is rolled out as an animated series, music, toys and NFTs.


The graphic novel introduces a brutal ensemble of pushers and murderers in a world where the line between anti-hero and arch-villain blurs quickly.


The animated series, which is in production with conversations with streamers and networks, will feature the voice talent of the likes of Ice-T, his wife Coco, Snoop Dogg, Tracy Morgan, Busta Rhymes, Mike Epps, Treach, Arabian Prince, Peter Scanavino, Roxanne Shanté, Ben Baller, Styles P, Tone Trump, Emilio Rivera, Tommy The Animator and Shannon Eric Denton.
