R&B singer Ne-Yo is teaming up with comic book mastermind Stan Lee to release an animated storybook to coincide with the release of his next album.

Ne-Yo has joined forces with the 87-year-old former Marvel president to work on a comic to accompany his fourth studio record, Libra Scale. He will appear in the strip as a man called Jerome who is given superpowers but is banned from falling in love.

The collaboration will also see the singer's first three singles from the album – "Beautiful Monster," "Champagne Life" and "One in a Million" – turned into animated videos to continue the comic book story.

Ne-Yo tell Britain's Daily Star, "I've been a fan (of Lee's) for years. I'm trying not to geek-out being with Stan. It's cool that I can take this comic element of myself and blend it into the R&B element. I got to draw characters myself."

Lee adds, "A really good rapper inspires people. Reading a good comic book does the same thing."

Libra Scale is due for release later this month.
