He changed the face and tone of radio for a raw, edgier generation and then set his sites on TV, movies, books and satellite broadcasting. Howard Stern, the pioneering “shock jock” and self-proclaimed “King Of All Media” was selected as the first subject to be featured in Bluewater Productions’ latest biography comic title “Orbit.”
“Orbit: Howard Stern” lifts the veil on the man behind the microphone by examining his rise to fame, his assault on the status quo of broadcasting, his over-the-top, sometimes crude persona and his ground breaking move to satellite radio.
“He is the voice of a generation, the voice of dissent, the voice of the people. He says what we all want to say and does what we all want to do…and people love him for it,” said writer CW Cooke. “He’s been in the public eye for years, but he’s still an enigma.”
The inaugural issue of “Orbit,” penned by Cooke and illustrated by Kent Hurlburt. The suggested retail price (SRP) for the upcoming comic book is $3.99.
