Bluewater Productions has expanded its series of biography comic book titles to include a new range that will focus on celebrities and pop culture icons.
The new range will be called Fame and will feature personalities such as Robert Pattinson, 50 Cent, David Beckham and Taylor Swift. The first title, available in time for Free Comic Book Day May 5, will feature Lady GaGa.
The idea was spawned by the success of Bluewater’s tribute book, Michael Jackson: King of Pop.
"Over the past year we saw an opportunity to broaden the scope of who reads comics," says Darren G. Davis, president, Bluewater. "There were many who had never picked up a graphic novel or comic book buy our biography titles. Fame gives us the ability to tell more interesting stories about a wider variety of notable personalities. Conversely, it allows us to focus the scope of our other biography titles to more socially and political important figures."
