Singer set to become hero of 32-page graphic novel
Madonna is set to become a comic book hero later this year, when a graphic novel detailing her life story is released in August.
The singer’s career will be documented in a 32-page comic book produced by publishers Bluewater Productions Inc. as part of their ‘Female Force’ series.
Other figures to have been previously featured in the series include Michelle Obama, Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Palin and Barbara Walters.
Bluewater’s executive vice-president Jason Schultz said: “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.
“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 comic book was written by CW Cooke and drawn by Michael Johnson. Cooke added: “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.”
Earlier this month (June 15), Madonna‘s manager Guy Oseary revealed that she would start work on her new album later this year. He told fans on Twitter: “She has a good idea which producers she will be working with.”
Her last LP – 2008’s ‘Hard Candy’ – was her final studio album under her contract with Warners. She has since signed a new deal to release records in partnership with concert promoters Live Nation.
