"FAME: BEYONCE" THE COMIC BOOK IN STORES THIS WEEK

In stores this week!

"Fame: Beyonce" the comic book will be in stores this Wednesday, March 2, 2011. Beyonce will add one more feat to her already impressive resume. She's set to become a comic-book hero.

The comic, written by CW Cooke and featuring pencils by Alex Lopez, will trace Beyonce's rise through the music business, from her early days with Destiny's Child to her booming solo career.

According to writer CW Cooke, for a person seemingly always in the public eye, Beyonce has led a relatively private life. Even the most avid Beyonce fan, then, will learn something new when reading Fame: Beyonce, Cooke said.

"We've found a niche with our bio comics," said publisher Darren G. Davis. "Our success with this comic shows that there is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes or horror. With our bio comics, we strive to bring these new readers evenhanded, well-researched looks at some of their favorite celebrities."

The last eight FAME comic book biographies have sold out. "Fame: Beyonce" will hit comic bookshops and online retailers like. The suggested retail price (SRP) for the upcoming comic book is $3.99. To find a comic book store near you go to www.comicshoplocator.com.
