EXCLUSIVE: First Look Inside The Beyonce Comic Book!

Beyonce comic bookNow that Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift and just about every other chart-topper of the last few decades have found their way into Bluewater Comics' line of unauthorized biography comics, it was only a matter of time before they turned their attention to Sasha Fierce herself, Beyonce Knowles.

Hitting shelves in January 2011, "Fame: Beyonce" promises to "trace Beyonce's rise through the music business, from her early days with Destiny's Child to her booming solo career." The 32-page comic will be written by CW Cooke with art by Alex Lopez.

Bluewater has provided Splash Page readers with the first, exclusive look inside the comic via a seven-page preview.

Official solicit text:

SHE'S ALREADY A STAR, NOW BEYONCE'S A COMIC-BOOK HERO

She¹s already a chart-topper. She¹s married to rap royalty. She¹s an

actress. Now Beyonce will add one more feat to her already impressive

resume: She¹s set to become a comic-book hero.

Bluewater Comics this January will send its latest biography comic, Fame:

Beyonce, to comic-book shops across the country. Readers will also be able

to order the comic directly from online retailers such as Amazon.com and

Barnes and Noble.com.

The comic, written by CW Cooke and featuring pencils by Alex Lopez, will

trace Beyonce¹s rise through the music business, from her early days with

Destiny¹s Child to her booming solo career.

The 32-page comic will retail for $3.99. To make sure you get your copy,

store near you go to www.comicshoplocator.com. The comic will also be on

According to writer CW Cooke, for a person seemingly always in the public

eye, Beyonce has led a relatively private life. Even the most avid Beyonce

fan, then, will learn something new when reading Fame: Beyonce, Cooke said.

³Working on Beyonce was quite an experience,² Cooke said. ³Everybody knows

who she is. And yet, there are so many little things and tidbits of

knowledge that seem to be passed up when people talk about her in the media.

³Getting to dive into her story and piece together her life was exciting,²

Cooke added. ³She¹s accomplished so much in so little time. She¹s had so

many ups and so few downs. Telling her story wasn¹t so much of a roller

coaster, but more of an exciting elevator ride.²

Darren Davis, publisher and founder of Bluewater Productions, said that he

hopes the Beyonce comic will again draw new readers to the world of comics

storytelling.

³Beyonce is such an amazingly charismatic presence,² Davis said. ³She has so

many fans. Hopefully many of them will pick up this comic, enjoy what they

see and go on to become regular comics readers. The comics industry needs

new readers. I hope that Bluewater¹s biography comics can bring them in.²
