Last month we got our first look at a new comic book devoted to the life of Britney Spears titled Fame: Britney Spears. Today we get to check out a few preview pages of the book which is due for release in March.
From Mousekateer to pop princess to tabloid fodder to redemption, the peaks and valleys of the life of Britney Spears are examined in Bluewater Productions’ latest biography comic book release, “Fame: Britney Spears.” Scheduled for a March 2011 release, the 32-page bio title covers most of the public spectacle a casual reader might expect. Her meteoric rise to superstardom and her harrowing difficulties stemming from her private life. However, the book looks to delve beyond the salacious headlines. “She is far more complicated than most people realize. No matter what preconceptions you have about her, there will always be more layers and surprises,” said issue author Patrick McCray. “Beyond the performer, there is a real human being there, struggling for a real life, struggling to connect with her art, and struggling to be understood.” According to publisher Darren G. Davis, Spears’ life reflects the core of what the “Fame” line of biography titles tries to achieve. “She was created in the Internet Age to be put on a pedestal, but no one can stand the glaring lights of celebrity that intensely. The title seeks to find the person within.” The title, written by McCray, was penciled by Ricardo Jaime who also provided the cover art. The issue will retail for $3.99 and be available through most online venues like Amazon.com as well as local comic book stores. “The only downside about writing the book was having to stop. This could have easily been a twelve-issue series and never gotten dull,” McCray added.
OMG, I love this so much. While I must agree with the publisher that the life of a LIVING LEGEND cannot be relegated to a single-issue comic book, I applaud Bluewater Productions for trying.
