Celebs Taylor Lautner, Britney Spears, Selens Gomez, MIchael Jackson & Black Eyes Peas get graphic, novel-style!
Bluewater Productions unveiled its schedule for the release of special edition graphic novels from its popular “Fame” biography comic book series that will be primarily distributed to bookstores.
Starting in August, graphic novels featuring Michael Jackson, Selena Gomez, Black Eyed Peas and Taylor Lautner will be repackaged with additional artwork, story content and new covers to expand each edition to nearly 40-pages.
“Each of these titles sold out during their initial release, but now we are nearly doubling the size of the book and giving fans and collectors more of what they want,” said publisher Darren G. Davis.
Detailed description of upcoming title:
FAME: TAYLOR LAUTNER Special Edition
Release Date: November 2011
Writer: Kimberly Sherman
Pencils: Warren Martineck
Just in time for “Twilight” Breaking Dawn.” From a background in extreme martial arts to packing on 30 pounds of muscle for his portrayal as a “shape-shifter,” Taylor Lautner is as close to a super hero as any human can become.
This fresh, lighthearted biography features artwork by Warren Martineck, down
to Lautner’s dazzling smile and chiseled features. This special graphic novel edition has a bunch of extras.
The “Fame” series, which launched earlier this year as an offshoot to Bluewater’s successful “Female Force” and “Political Power” biography comics continues to grow in popularity with each successive issue, and there is
often a flurry of excitement as the next featured subject is announced. Most of the single issues have sold out in days after its release. Today Bluewater’s distributors has just sold out of biographies on Tiger Woods, Martha
Stewart & Stephen King. You should still be able to find these in stores and a 2nd print is in the works.
According to Davis the “Fame” title allows Bluewater to delve into the celebrity culture and understand how a person rises to fame and deals with the new-found celebrity and continue to produce in the public eye. That includes actors, sports figures, recording artists and royals; notable personalities that would be precluded from Bluewater’s other politically oriented biography titles.
Each issue retails for $7.99. Although primarily distributed through traditional retail outlets, like Barnes & Nobles and Books-A-Million, these special editions will also be available through several online venues including
Previous titles that are available now are Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift & Lady Gaga. Retail giant Walmart has already committed to sell the Bieber title in stores. The series has been covered by People Magazine, Time Magazine, Vanity Fair as well as CNN, The View and Entertainment Tonight.
High-resolution images and interview opportunities are available upon request. Please feel to reprint the images in your publications.
