The 27-year-old singer made the big reveal of his release, 'Starboy' - the same name of his September 2016 single and November 2016 album - at New York's Comic-Con on Saturday (07.10.17).

He tweeted: "The Weeknd and Marvel presents : STARBOY... comic book coming soon. I'll be signing autographs in the Marvel Booth @ 2:30 #NYCC (sic)"

The star - whose real name is Abel Tesfaye - appeared to be delighted with the new release and he encouraged others to have huge ambition in life.

He tweeted: "always dream big (sic)"

Following the release of his 'Starboy' album, the star revealed plans to make a comic book character out of his alter-ego.

He said: "'Starboy' is the next chapter in this chronicle, this saga.

"I guess this is the fourth chapter. He's a character that we created. It's so funny, we want to create a comic out of him as well [...] He's a cool, dope character that makes appearances a lot on the album.

"He's definitely made his appearance in different records in the past as well. He's a more braggadocious character that we all have inside of us."

The first issue of the 'Starboy' comic is due to be released in 2018 and features The Weeknd's alter-ego on the front.

In August, the star admitted he loves being "mysterious" and is "not in a rush" to show who he really is.

He said: "I'm not in a rush to let people know everything about me. Mystery is always great. Luckily, the only thing the world demands of me is music. I don't have to give them anything else for the rest of my life."
