Coming soon to a bookstore near you: Justin Bieber’s life story…
In October, Bluewater Productions will release FAME: Justine Bieber—a 32-page biographical comic of the sixteen year-old singer, who was “discovered” after utilizing technology and social networking as a means to find an audience for his music.
Radar Online is hosting an exclusive preview of the book, which can be seen here.
The book was written by Tara Broeckel Ooten and illustrated by Claudio Avella. In a press release, Broeckel Ooten was quoted as saying, “I’m reminded of the stories my mom tells about when she was young and Beatelmania invaded the United States. For me it was New Kids on the Block…Now today’s teens and tweens go wild for Justin, and rightly so. He is a talented young musician. He has such an enormous global fan base. That and his talent will probably give him some real staying power in the industry.”
Darren Davis, founder and president of Bluewater Productions, added, “With the FAME series, and our other biographical titles, we have succeeded in exposing comic books to readers who otherwise wouldn’t pick up, say, an issue of Spider-Man…I’m certain that our Justin Bieber comic will do the same; he certainly has a devoted group of fans whom I’m sure will be thrilled to see their favorite performer immortalized in comic form.”
Other celebrities who have been immortalized in Bluewater’s FAME series include Lady Gaga, and Robert Pattinson. This month’s new issues feature Kristen Stewart and Taylor Swift, while future installments will depict Taylor Lautner—are you sensing a Twilight theme here?—and David Beckham.
FAME: Justin Bieber is available for pre-order at comic book stores and online from Amazon.com.
What do you think, dear readers: Has Bieber lived long enough to justify the $3.99 price tag?
