"FAME: LADY GAGA" BIO COMIC BOOK SELLS OUT IN ONE DAY, 3rd PRINTING AS WELL AS A SEQUEL IN THE WORKS
Bluewater Productions' biography comic book on pop diva Lady Gaga has sold out one day after its release. A third printing, with a new cover is already in production.
"A lot of our biography comic books have sold out, despite many shops still under-ordering. Readers have contacted us still trying to find our books," said BWP Managing Editor Darren G. Davis. "It just goes to show that you don't have to be mainstream to reach the market. Readers just want great stories with great art, and if you can deliver that to them, they'll come back for more every month."
Davis also said, "Not only has the Lady Gaga issue sold out, but "Fame: Taylor Swift" & "Fame: Kristen Stewart" is selling briskly too. This is even after overprinting the book."
The issue written by Dan Rafter and penciled by Kristoffer Smith, has received attention through its unique approach to the top-selling artist's biography.
"Lady Gaga is a different sort of celebrity. So when writing a biography of her, I didn't want to resort to putting out a straight celebrity biography," said writer Dan Rafter. "Instead, I wanted to take a look at how Lady Gaga's fame could impact even the most unlikeliest of individuals. So just as she tries to be different, I too had to try something a little different with Gaga."
To those fans desiring a more traditional telling of Lady Gaga¹s biography, a sequel of sorts is scheduled for November. Fame offers a broad examination of strong influential personalities who have an impact on culture. In a review of the Gaga comic, the New York Times commented. "If you¹re going to start a line of biographical comic books devoted to "culturally relevant celebrities and pop-culture icons," Lady Gaga is probably a good choice to inaugurate the series."
The third printing of Fame: Lady Gaga will be available in about three weeks. The FAME upcoming issues include Taylor Lautner and David Beckham.
"FAME: KRISTEN STEWART" BIOGRAPHY COMIC BOOK ALSO SELLS OUT IN ONE DAY
After yesterday's announcement of Bluewater Productions' biography comic book on pop diva Lady Gaga has selling out one day after its release, Fame: Kristen Stewart does the same even with an aggressive overprinting of the title.
As for a new printing, next month comes a giant sized flipbook with FAME: Kristen Stewart and FAME: Robert Pattinson. Both books will be printed in a 48-page comic book and have new material not seen before. The book can be ordered at comic book stores and Amazon by using the ISBN code 978-1-4507-0884-5.
Writer Kim Sherman, who has also penned Bluewaters' Robert Pattinson entry in the series, said that Stewart's versatility and talent might surprise readers who only know her as Bella.
"For Twilight fans, Kristen Stewart is a woman whom fans long to be and love to hate," Sherman said. "But Kristen has been in the public eye for years, and her career as a serious actor spans dozens of films over a 10-year period of time. My goal with this biography was to show readers the depth residing in this young woman and the roles she's beautifully tackled through a series of spot shots, pinups and word art."
Sherman added that the art on this book, provided by renowned DC/Wildstorm artist Warren Martineck, perfectly brings Stewart's story to life.
According to the distributor the Fame: Taylor Swift should be sold out by the end of the week.
Also next months are comic book biographies of Taylor Lautner, Justin Bieber and David Beckham. All of them are available for pre-order.
