FAME: JUSTIN BIEBER THE COMIC BOOK IN STORES THIS WEEK
Like The Beatles, Justin Bieber started life in simple public housing, and also like The Beatles, he is forced to balance fame with his humble beginnings as he comes of age with the whole world screaming his name. Fame: Justin Bieber traces the career of this YouTube sensation from his musical childhood in Ontario to the stage of his first headlining tour.
Bieber becomes a comic book hero when Bluewater Productions taps his life story for its popular Fame series of biographical comics. Fame: Justin Bieber comic book and will hit comic book shops and online retailers on Wednesday. This 32-page issue will retail for $3.99.
Writer Tara Broeckel Ooten said that while researching the comic she became convinced that Bieber has what it takes to craft a long musical career. The comic book was drawn by Claudio Avella.
Bieber is far from the first celebrity to appear in Bluewater's Fame series. Later this month he is joined by Twilight star Taylor Lautner & soccer star David Beckham.
Darren G. Davis, president of Bluewater Productions, says that the biographical comics continually bring new readers to sequential storytelling. "This is a great medium for kids as well as adults. I had a hard time reading as a kid and comic books really improved my reading skills. One of the goals is trying to get kids away from the video games and reading more."
Davis says, "Fame: Justin Bieber is tracking to sell out fast, even with an aggressive overprint our distributor is having a hard time keeping up with orders."
