Justin Bieber — Comic Book Hero

posted by Nell Minow

Internet sensation. Recording superstar. Twitter’s top trending topic. Hair icon. Teen idol. And now, Justin Bieber becomes a comic book hero. Bluewater Productions has put Bieber’s life story from public housing to superstardom in the latest from its popular Fame series of biographical comics. FAME: Justin Bieber. BEIBER.jpg
Writer Tara Broeckel Ooten said that while researching the comic she became convinced that Bieber has what it takes to craft a long musical career. The comic book was drawn by Claudio Avella.
Coming issues will feature “Twilight” star Taylor Lautner & soccer star David Beckham.
Darren G. Davis, president of Bluewater Productions, says that the biographical comics continually bring new readers to sequential storytelling. “This is a great medium for kids as well as adults. I had a hard time reading as a kid and comic books really improved my reading skills. One of the goals is trying to get kids away from the video games and reading more”

    I also had a hard time reading as a kid and comic books really improved my reading skills as well. What did you read?

      Thanks, Ric! My favorites were Superman and Fantastic Four.
