Comics fan Eminem -- whose new album, 'Relapse,' drops in two weeks -- isn't just the cover boy of the new XXL magazine on stands today, he's also the co-star of a Punisher comic book included in the mag, appropriately called 'Punisher/Eminem: Kill You.'

Created by writer Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies 3) and artist Salvador Larocca (invincible Iron Man), the comic kicks off with Eminem getting caught in the crossfire between a Punisher and Barracuda battle, and then leaping into the fray himself. Turns out things are more complicated than they seem, and you'll never guess who's behind the contract on Eminem's life...

The first part of the comic is available only in the magazine, but the full book is online now at Marvel Digital Comics.
