Watch your back, Ras Trent—there’s a new bong-toting white guy in town ready to save the world with irie vibes for all of Jah’s children in de hood. It’s MarijuanaMan
, the latest comic-book creation from . . . Ziggy Marley
? You read it right, folks: the son of the world’s most famous reggae musician has lent his official Marley-royalty imprimatur to a goateed spliff-smoking Caucasian superhero in green-and-yellow spandex who rescues the earth’s marijuana fields from the evil company PharmeXon. He’s serious! He’s going to ComicCon and everything! “I have been reading comics since I was a little boy in Jamaica,” he said, announcing that the first issue hits stands on the predictable date of April 20, 2011. In the meantime, Marley does this thing his family is famous for, and he’ll be singing “Tomorrow People,” “Love Is My Religion” and other hits on Friday, July 16, at Robert Mondavi Winery. 7801 St. Helena Hwy., Oakville. 5pm. $85–$215. 707.226.7372.
