They quote Agnez Mo as saying "I've always enjoyed storytelling, whether through my songs when I write them or through my music videos when I direct. But now, I'm extremely excited to jump into this new realm of graphic novels. It's been incredibly fun to formulate this fantasy tale that I initially created for my song 'Long As I Get Paid,' which has since come to life as a real comic character. I'm really looking forward to sharing this with my fans as I'm super proud of this first issue and have loved working with this team to help me carry out my vision."

Here's the song in question, with 29 million views.

Inspired by singer Agnez Mo's hit music video "Long As I Get Paid," comes an atypical avenging angel. Walking between the dreamscape and reality, existing outside the forces of good and evil, she follows her own moral code. And her methods of delivering justice aren't swift, which is not good news for John, an unsuspecting artifacts dealer with a nasty pastime and a willful insistence on his own virtue. Don't Wake Up is Catwoman meets The Sandman, where creator Agnez Mo and writer Karla Pacheco will transport you into the dreamscape, seduce you into the heist of a lifetime, and pull you into a battle of gods for the ages.
