Artists Qué and Meaghan Harvey started a webcomic series in September titled Chosen One: Activis Status which features Future as a samurai on a quest to “take back his clan’s legacy.” Assisted by his partner in crime, DJ Esco, the two fight off a bunch of iconic rappers such as KRS-One, Busta Rhymes, Chuck D, 50 Cent and more.
