Justin Bieber is the latest artist to become immortalized in comic book form as part of Bluewater Productions' Fame series. The 32-page issue, which hits comic book stores and online retailers in October for $3.99, will chronicle the teen idol's meteoric rise. The singer joins such earlier Fame subjects as May cover muse Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift, whose issue goes on sale in late July.
Bluewater Productions founder/president Darren Davis says Bieber was chosen because "he has a cool story, having started off on YouTube. For being so young, he's really a trailblazer."
The cover of the Bieber comic book shows the artist standing on the moon. The story that unfolds inside include scenes from his career. For example, writer Tara Broeckel Ooten and illustrator Claudio Avella depict how manager Scooter Braun discovered Bieber, the singer's appearances on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," as well as Bieber coiffing his signature hairstyle, hanging out with mentor Usher and sitting in class.
