Miley Cyrus gets comic book treatment from Bluewater Productions
From Disney darling to shock pop princess, Miley Cyrus has enjoyed a bombastic career that crosses genres. A musician, singer, writer, and actress, Cyrus has become an icon to tweens searching for their identity and to teens who have grown up with their idol, the effervescent Hannah Montana.
Fame: Miley Cyrus will be released this week and will be available in both print and digital formats. The book, written by Michael L. Frizell and drawn by Juan Luis Rincón, will feature two covers: an alternate Patrick Nagel inspired cover by Nelson Hernandez and the regular edition by famed comic book artist Joey Mason.
“I wanted to do something different with this story. Miley is tabloid fodder, but why? Many childhood stars have remade themselves. Sadly, many female artists tend to go the ‘sex kitten’ route to prove they’re adults and worthy of a legit career. All musicians need to remake themselves to stay relevant. Christina Aguilera managed the transition successfully, but I think many people were expecting Miley to go the way of Brittney Spears and totally melt down in public. Thus, I thought it would be interesting to have the adult Miley confront her childhood and perhaps coax us to understand the reasoning behind her artistic choices. It remains to be seen whether she’ll be seen as more than a child star, despite her successful tours and album sales,” says writer, Michael L. Frizell.
“I liked the script by Michael L. Frizell very much. It’s very smart to make a kind version of A Christmas Carol with Miley Cyrus where the ghost of the past comes to visit her. It was amazing draw this boo,” said artist Juan Luis Rincón
The book will also be released day and date in France. For the first time Bluewater is teaming up with the publisher Wetta. The book will be available in print at vipcomics.fr
“Bluewater has created a genre of its own with Fame that is cleverly targeting a different audience than the usual comic books readers, breakin’ away from the “geektatorate” canons to bring a concept much closer to what comic books should be for the public: fun, careless and entertaining,” said Wetta Publisher.

The Fame series was launched earlier in 2010 as a companion piece to the successful Female Force and Political Power biography titles. The comic allows Bluewater to delve into the celebrity culture and understand how a person rises to fame, deals with the newfound celebrity status and continue to produce in the public eye. That includes actors, sports figures, recording artists and royals.
Fame has been embraced by the media and featured on several television news outlets including The Today Show, The View, E! News, The Tonight Show and on CNN. The series has also been featured in many publications such as Vanity Fair, MTV, Time Magazine, and Rolling Stone.
