Rae Sremmurd is venturing into the comic book world thanks to Valiant Entertainment. The rap duo has teamed with the publisher to create their first comic book project, SHADOWMAN/RAE SREMMURD #1.

According to a press release, Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee will partner with Valiant’s supernatural superhero to embark on a new adventure of fame, fortune and magic.

“Comic books are a form of entertainment. I get to make all the sounds and effects in my head. It’s just like you use your imagination – you go through the pictures and the pictures are always awesome. It’s like an escape from reality,” said Jxmmi. “Shadowman is crazy. It has a lot of twists and turns. It keeps me involved and interested. I can’t even take my eyes off of Shadowman when I read it. I have to finish the book.”

“Rae Sremmurd are huge comic books fans, and everyone here at Valiant is a huge fan of their music," said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. "The combination of their talents, along with those of Eliot Rahal and Renato Guedes (designers of the comic book series), feels like a project that will take fans and readers by surprise. And we owe a huge thanks to Vinny Kumar and Empire for helping put this together.”

The SHADOWMAN/RAE SREMMURD #1 comic book will arrive in stores this October.
