EXCLUSIVE: ‘Black Eyed Peas’ Comic Book To Hit Shelves In February

Earlier this week, we gave you an early peek at the “Glee” comic book that just hit shelves from Bluewater Comics, and now we have an exclusive look at the next title in their popular line of “Fame” biography comics.

“Fame: The Black Eyed Peas” will follow in the footsteps of Bluewater’s previous unauthorized biographies of Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, and other pop icons, and promises to “trace the history of one of the country’s most popular bands from its humble roots all the way to its Grammy winning successes.”

Written by M. Zachary Sherman with art from Kristopher Smith, the 32-page comic arrives on shelves in February 2011.

Bluewater brings the Black Eyed Peas to the comic pages

The Black Eyed Peas made history in 2009 when its singles I Gotta Feeling and Boom Boom Pow held the top two spots in the Billboard Hot 100. Only 11 artists, including the Peas, have managed this feat in the Hot 100’s history.

The Black Eyed Peas will make history of a different sort this February. That’s when Bluewater Productions will ship its latest comic, Fame: The Black Eyed Peas to comic shops and online retailers across the country.

The Peas will become the latest artists to hit the pages of a Bluewater-produced comic. The company’s Fame series, which profiles the biggest of celebrities and artists, has already featured biographies of Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, David Beckham and Taylor Swift.

The Black Eyed Peas comic will trace the history of one of the country’s most popular bands from its humble roots all the way to its Grammy winning successes. Along the way, readers will discover a variety of previously unknown facts about the talented musicians that make up the Peas.

“It was impossible to get away from the Black Eyed Peas in the last two years,” said Darren Davis, publisher and founder of Bluewater Productions. “This group is exactly the kind of band we want to showcase in our Fame series, one that has captured the attention of the country. This comic does a tremendous job of showcasing the band’s rise, and should provide plenty of new information for even the most devoted of its fans.”

M. Zachary Sherman wrote the script for Fame: The Black Eyed Peas, while Kristopher Smith handled the pencils. Smith also contributed one of the books’ two covers.

The 32-page comic will retail for $3.99.

Bluewater Productions, one of the country’s leading independent comics publishers, has gained its own brand of fame for its series of biography comics, Fame, Female Force and Political Power. The company, though, also produces a line of fiction comics, including such critically acclaimed series as Insane Jane, Nanny & Hank and Styx & Stone.
