<i>Shady Talez</i> comic coming from Marvel?

ScreenDaily.com is reporting that New Warriors writer Kevin Grevioux, who also wrote the Underworld movies, is teaming with writer-producer Dallas Jackson to write Shady Talez, a four-issue comic book series due out in 2010 under the Marvel Icons imprint.

According to ScreenDaily.com, the comic is based on a movie of the same name that will star rapper Eminem. He's also co-producing it, along with Jackson, Grevioux and I, Robot producer John Davis. The 3D film is said to be in the vein of The Twilight Zone and Creepshow.

It seems odd that Marvel would use its Icon imprint for something like this, since it seems to be reserved for creator-owned comics by their biggest creators, but I guess it's not out of the realm of possibilities. I checked with Marvel, and they had no comment.
