Stan Lee to Collaborate with Japanese Rock Star Yoshiki

11 10 2010

So Stan Lee and Japanese rock star Yoshiki Hayashi (of ‘X Japan’) are set to collaborate on a motion comic together. This story would seem far-fetched if it wasn’t for Stan Lee’s involvement with glam U.S. rockers ‘Kiss’ in the late seventies. Blood from each band member was extracted and poured into the vats of red ink used to print the first ‘Kiss’ comic (Marvel, 1977). We can also look to the recent success of manga-inspired ‘Scott Pilgrim’ as a possible catalyst for this new venture.

Website ‘JRock Revolution‘ states:

“Combining the talents of these two great artists, Stan Lee’s gothic-styled music Super Hero will be based on Yoshiki and his passion for music and his fascination with dragons. The music Super Hero will be a vigilante. Yoshiki’s music will be inspired by Lee’s story and will play an important role in the comic series. The Super Hero’s powers are triggered when certain musical notes are played on drumsticks by Yoshiki’s character. Additionally, Yoshiki will create music that will be heard in the motion comic”
