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, the latest celebrity to be part of its semi-regular line of Female Force comics.
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 Vancouver, Washington-based publisher. Previous subjects in the Female Force series have included Betty White, Michelle Obama, Barbara Walters, Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher.
