(Newser) – It's a bird, it's a plane, it's, oh dude, Marijuanaman. And none other than reggae star Ziggy Marley is bringing this superhero to life in comic book form. The world gets a peek at Comic-Con later this month, but the book won't be out until next year, on 4/20, of course. Marley's collaborating with a writer and artist on the series, in which Marijuanaman tries to save the earth's pot fields from an evil pharmaceutical company, reports Comics Alliance.
