FAME: JUSTIN BIEBER HITS SHELVES AT WAL-MART
In an exclusive distribution deal with Wal-Mart, Bluewater Productionsâ€™ latest biography comic trade title, "Fame: Justin Bieber" has hit the shelves and is now available exclusively at the retail giantâ€™s North American locations.
The expanded trade offering differs from the similarly titled comic book version released late last year. This 40-page edition presents additional narrative as well as never seen bonus artwork. This issue, complete with exclusive cover art, can only be purchased through Wal-Mart.
"Fame: Justin Bieber," written by Tara Broeckel Ooten and penciled by Claudio Avella traces the meteoric rise of the teen superstar from obscurity to a pop culture staple with legion of fans screaming his name.
"His story is a timeless one: just like the story of the struggling actress discovered at the counter of the Hollywood soda fountain, Bieber has risen to incredible heights after being 'discovered' from a YouTube video posting. It's a new myth for the generation who never knew the world before the Internet," said Bluewater president Darren Davis.
Although the title is exclusively available in Wal-Mart stores now, "Fame: Justin Bieber,â€ť" the graphic novel, will be released nationally through a variety of retail outlets, online venues and comic book shops in late March. The book retails for $7.99.
Upcoming graphic novels through Bluewater's FAME line in the next few months are Taylor Swift, The Cast of "Glee" & Lady Gaga.
