Comic book to tell Madonna story
Published 23/06/2011 | 20:49
Madonna will soon find herself in a whole new material world: the pages of a comic book.
The star is to have her life story told in 32 pages by Bluewater Productions, becoming the latest celebrity to be part of its line of Female Force comics.
"Most pop stars owe everything to this woman. It's amazing all of the things that she's done in her lifetime, and I have a feeling that this is still only the beginning," said writer C.W Cooke.
"Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in Madonna becoming the phenomenon she remains to this day, more than a quarter-century after she burst upon the scene," said Jason Schultz, Bluewater's executive vice president. "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 one-shot issue, due out in August for 3.99 US dollars (£2.50), will look at her life as she was transformed from a little-known singer into a multimillion-record-selling entertainer and trendsetter.
The issue joins a growing collection of similar titles from the publisher. Previous subjects in the Female Force series have included Betty White, Michelle Obama, Barbara Walters, Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher.
