Murs is bringing the comics and hip hop together. “Yumiko: Curse of the Merch Girl” is his new project: a brand new album and 124-page graphic novel. “The album and novel unite to tell the story of Yumi Morales, a girl living the fabled tour life working the merchandise table for her boyfriend Dominick’s band Murder Acts. ” They’re putting it in your hands, asking for your help by pledging on their Kickstarter page. The graphic novel is illustrated by Jose Garcia, written by Josh Blaylock, and the 10-song album is produced entirely by DJ Foundation.
The only place you’ll be able to get this project is through the Kickstarter page… so if you want it, you gotta make a pledge. And if you are new to how Kickstarter works, check it out. Basically, for whatever amount you donate/pledge toward this project, you’ll receive awesome incentives. Things you can get include MP3 download of the album, PDF or the hardcover graphic novel, shout-outs on Twitter, download cards and prints (from Jim Mahfood & David Mack), signed copies of the project, exclusive t-shirt, a hoodie, Paid Dues VIP pass, invite to the Comic-Con party where they’re releasing the music video, and so on. You get these awesome things, and more, depending on the amount of money you give. Be sure to check it out! Help Merch Girl.
