Tim Duncan can add "comic book cameo" to his already long list of accomplishments. The legendary Spurs forward will appear in comic form in a upcoming special release of Marvels Punisher, according to a Facebook post from Blackjack Speed Shop, Duncan's auto customization garage. (He has a lot of hobbies. Good for him.) A replica of the car featured in the issue will be auctioned off for charity:
Ok Tim Duncan and Punisher Fans; this is what you have all been waiting for! Thank You to our Friends at Heroes and Fantasies, Marvel Comics and Gunn Automotive group. We are proud to announce a very special release of The Punisher featuring TD!!! Tim and BlackJack will also be building a replica of the car featured in the comic! Want to win this Car???

According to Heroes and Fantasies, the comic featuring the Spurs star was drawn by San Antonio-native Mike Choi. The comic book shop hopes to bring him to town for a signing when the special issue is released in October.
