The Black Eyed Peas singer Will.I.Am's comic book, Masters of the Sun: The Zombie Chronicles, will immerse its readers with an additional augmented reality component, that enhances the experience through one's smartphone screen.

While this is not the first piece of literature to use AR, this comic book does take the experience one step further by incorporating a score composed by Hans Zimmer, narration by Stan Lee and a collection of celebrity cast members, including Jamie Foxx, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Rosario Dawson and Snoop Dog.

The app adds the additional content to Will.I.Am's comic book, which was published in August 2017. According to the singer, the AR component was meant to enhance the experience of reading a book, not replace it.
