He’s a genius, the voice of a generation, a connoisseur of fishsticks, a motherlovin’ lyrical wordsmith!
And now, Destiny herself has opened her doors to Kanye — and by that, I mean he is getting his own graphic novel. Via Midtown Comics, under the Independent section of their Graphic Novels:
THROUGH THE WIRE is a graphic memoir that illustrates the lyrics of twelve Kanye West songs to tell his story, from his decision to drop out of college to pursue his dreams in music, through his days spent folding chinos at the Gap while struggling at night to make a name as a producer, through the pivotal car accident that eventually set him on the course to stardom and the epiphany of realizing exactly who he had become.
The graphic novel, published by Simon and Schuster and drawn by Bill Plympton (yeah, I don’t know how he got involved with this, either), will be out later this week. It can’t be much more awkward than the ending of this. Or possibly this.
