Bluewater is pleased to announce a special comic book project featuring one of the most accomplished and well-known pop stars in America today, the one and only Selena Gomez, quite possibly the hottest young singer alive.

Selena Gomez: Young At Heart will be released in September 2011 and come in two versions. The regular comic format will be offered for $3.99 and feature a cover by Adam Ellis, while a 40 page graphic novel sure to please hard core fans will be offered for $7.99 with a cover by famed comic book artist Joe Phillips.The bio on Gomez’s life will be written by Marc Shapiro and drawn by Alex Lopez.

Selena Gomez is without a doubt one of the most popular young musicians on the scene today.. This comic will focus on the highlights of her remarkable life, from childhood dreams to being the girl-next-door to her rise to the pinnacle of pop music. The story starts from her birth to becoming the gal-pal of Justin Bieber.

Publisher Darren G. Davis said, ³Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in Selena Gomez becoming the superstar she is today. A visual medium provides perspective that is not only accessible but more relatable to the average person without losing any of the information involved.

The comic and graphic novel versions will both be chronicling this saga, Selena Gomez: Young At Heart will explore all sides of this inimitable talent and give us insight into how she got to be the superstar household name she is today.

“Writing about Selena Gomez was a revelation. She has a legitimate drive and commitment to make it to the top,² says writer Marc Shapiro. Yes she’s cut from the same mold as Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus but I was able to see, in researching her story, that she has real grit and smarts and it shows in the choices she’s made to this point. Selena is not just another cookie cutter teen star who will fade out in a few years. She definitely has a future.”
