Bluewater Productions’ newest release in its Female Force comic book series is “Cher.”
The 32-page comic will be in bookstores and on Amazon on Feb. 15.
New York Times’ best-selling author Marc Shapiro wrote the bio-comic, which features art by Zach Basset with a cover by DC Comics artist Joe Phillips.
“We have been creating the biographies of the famous in a sequential art form for almost two years, and it was only a matter of time before we got to this icon,” said Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis.
Shapiro said Cher’s life reads like a comic book: “The clothes, the times, the attitudes of the decades she’s lived through. The different styles of music she’s been involved in. So much of what Cher has experienced is so flamboyant, over the top and just plain out there. She has been very much the real life equivalent of a superhero, and writing about Cher, to a large degree, has been just about letting my imagination go.”
Others profiled in the Female Force series include Madonna, Britney Spears, JK Rowling, Ellen DeGeneres, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Sarah Palin and Selena Gomez.
Bluewater publishes comic books and graphic novels, including “10th Muse,” “The Legend of Isis” ” “TekWar Chronicles,” “Wrath of the Titans,” “Sinbad: Rogue of Mars,” “Jason and the Argonauts” and “Vincent Price Presents.”
