The pop music star is the subject of a new one-shot comic book, reports Billboard. The comic is done by Bluewater Productions Inc.’s ongoing “Fame” series, which has profiled other celebrities including Lady Gaga, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, among others.
The Spears comic will focus on her rise to stardom, her documented private life and her efforts to be understood, said Patrick McCray, who wrote the issue.
“She is far more complicated than most people realize. No matter what preconceptions you have about her, there will always be more layers and surprises,” he said. “Beyond the performer, there is a real human being there, struggling for a real life, struggling to connect with her art, and struggling to be understood.”
“She was created in the Internet Age to be put on a pedestal, but no one can stand the glaring lights of celebrity that intensely,” Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis said. “The title seeks to find the person within.”
The 32-page issue, illustrated by Ricardo Jaime, comes out Wednesday in comic book stores and online retailers.
An interesting concept – as a super-fan, I’m really tempted to buy this. I don’t know how Britney feels about her personal life being, once again, under scrutiny, but if it’s done in a cool way I’m sure she won’t mind.
