– Taylor Swift - comic book hero. Along with Super Man and Iron Man is Swift, who will have a comic book bio out this summer.
Her biography comic, "Fame: Taylor Swift," hits comic shops this July. The comic, by Bluewater Productions, will trace Swift's rise from young singer/songwriter to mega-selling recording artist.
CW Cooke and PR McCormack teamed up to write the Swift bio comic, while artist Erick Adrian Marquez handled the pencils. The comic features two covers, one by Marquez and a second by JuanMar Studios. This 32-page comic will retail for $3.99.
"Learning about Taylor's life from the beginning until now made her feel like more than just the next big thing, it made me see the pop icon as a human being," said Cooke.
Marquez said he was impressed while reading the script to Swift's comic at the dedication the young artist showed even as a child. "I really appreciate Swift's - and her parent's - drive from such a young age to be successful based on her creativity and talent," Marquez said.
This is the latest biography comic from Bluewater Productions. Though the independent comic company publishes comics in every genre - superhero, fantasy, adventure and young adult - it has received media attention for its biography comics, which have featured Oprah Winfrey, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Michelle Obama and Colin Powell. The company's Fame line will feature Lady GaGa, 50 Cent, Robert Pattinson and soccer star David Beckham.
"We've found a niche with our bio comics," said Darren G. Davis, president and founder of Bluewater Productions. "Our success with this comics shows that there is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes or horror. With our bio comics, we strive to bring these new readers evenhanded, well-researched looks at some of their favorite celebrities."
