We brok31MnFwOoSHLe the story back in 2013, that Ales Kot was working on a new graphic novella about an Islamic transgender pop star, called Anti-Star.

We later learned that it would be with Christian Ward.

Well, it's just hit Amazon. Dropping the hyphen, from Image Comics and scheduled for January. Available for order here in the US and here in the UK.

And here's the solicit text…

And if you manage to get inside the most prestigious pop music reality show of the future and win the main prize? The prize is near-eternal fame.
