Ziggy Marley to Introduce Marijuanaman at Comic-Con

Yep. Marijuanaman. Reggae star Ziggy Marley, son of Bob Marley, is part of a joint effort with co-writer Joe Casey and artist Jim Mahfood to produce a pot-powered superhero coming to stores on – you guessed it – April 20 of 2011. What’s more, Ziggy’s coming to San Diego Comic-Con International for a special poster smoking signing.

Image’s smokin’ official synopsis chronicles the upcoming adventure:

Ziggy’s new superhero, Marijuanaman, is from a planet that is in desperate need of THC. Marijuanaman seeks to save Earth’s marijuana fields from destruction by the drug company PharmeXon, and thus saving his home planet from destruction.

To be blunt, Image’s hullabaloo over a certain other celebrity comic left a less-than stellar taste in my mouth at last year’s Comic-Con. I just wasn’t really high on how things turned out. Judging from the involvement of Casey and Mahfood, however, Marley’s “Marijuanaman,” seems like it could produce a much more potent (and enjoyable) reading experience.
