FAME: JUSTIN BIEBER HITS SHELVES AT WAL-MART

FAME: Justin Bieber coming
to a Wal-Mart near you!

In an exclusive distribution deal with Wal-Mart, Bluewater Productions’ latest biography comic trade title, "Fame: Justin Bieber" has hit the shelves and is now available exclusively at the retail giant’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,”" 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.
