Deltron 3030 Comic Book (CMJ, January 2001)

Back in January 2001, CMJ New Music Monthly released this fresh comic short in support of Deltron 3030's debut self-titled album. If you don't know, Deltron 3030 consists of Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala. I'd consider the album to be a cult-classic, which also sees featured work from Prince Paul, Mr. Lif, Peanut Butter Wolf, MC Paul Barman, and more. There's a large portion of hip-hop heads who were also heavily into comics - for example: Pete Rock, DJ Eclipse, Method Man and numerous others. Wu-Tang was featured on the cover of this CMJ issue in support of The W, and there was also a nice feature with Mr. Lif you can read HERE. Check out "three hip-hop heads traveling through a post-apocalyptic, post-World War IV universe" when you hit play on the album. The comic also features Ice-T, Kool Keith and more; check it out above and the album review is below, which considers the album 'half-baked.' You agree or disagree?
