A collaborative effort between illustrator Jose Garcia, writer Josh Blaylock from Devil’s Due Entertainment, and hip-hop artist Murs, Yumiko: Curse of the Merch Girl is a combo comic book and hip-hop soundtrack album. The comic follows a girl named Yumiko “Yumi” Morales, who works the merch booth for her boyfriend’s band and is inevitably swept up into a whirlwind adventure.

The project, funded entirely by fans in a Kickstarter campaign, is set to drop July 16th – but you can preview the first chapter and the accompanying song before then.

Listen to the aforementioned tune, titled “Love” by Murs, below:
