PREVIEW: 'Michael Jackson, King Of Pop' Comic Book

Back in June, we told you about Bluewater Productions' plans to publish the comic book biography "Tribute: Michael Jackson, King Of Pop." Now, we have your first look at the comic, which will chronicle the entertainer's life and many contributions to music and pop culture.

Click on the image below for a five-page preview of "Tribute: Michael Jackson, King Of Pop," which hits shelves in October and features a wraparound cover and forward by Giuseppe Mazzola, a member of "The Official Michael Jackson Fan Club" and a personal friend of the musician. Wey-Yuih Loh ("Political Power: Colin Powell") and Giovanni Timpano ("Vincent Price Presents") will write and illustrate the book, respectively.

According to Bluewater president Darren G. Davis, "Tribute" will be a 24-page comic that will also include a "special section we are working on with Golden Apple Comics, the store Michael Jackson shopped at for the last 20 years."

As frequent readers know, Jackson was no stranger to the world of comics. Along with a collection of comics and comic book movie memorabilia that would have even the most jaded fan drooling, Jackson almost became the owner of Marvel Comics back in the '90s in a partnership with Stan Lee.

Lee explained how their relationship began and how close they actually came to buying Marvel Comics in a video interview with Splash Page last month.
