The Comic World has come down with a case of Bieber Fever.
Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber joins newsmakers such as Taylor Swift, David Beckham, and Lady Gaga as the latest celeb to have his lifestory immortalized on the pages of a popular line of biographical comic books.
The 16-year-old “Baby” crooner is getting animated for Fame: Justin Bieber, which chronicles his childhood in Canada and his rise to fame after he was discovered on YouTube.com.
The heartthrob’s inspired comic will also feature frames inspired by Justin’s first headlining tour.
“I’m reminded of the stories my mom tells about when she was young and Beatlemania invaded the United States. For me it was New Kids On The Block,” says Tara Broeckel Ooten, who penned Bieber’s Fame.
“Now today’s teens and tweens go wild for Justin, and rightly so. He is a talented young musician. He has such an enormous global fan base,” Ooten added. “That and his talent will probably give him some real staying power in the industry. I listened to Bieber’s music for the first time while working on this project, and I have to admit, it can really stick with you.”
The 32-page comic is expected to retail for $3.99 when it arrives on store shelves and online retailers in October. Fame: Justin Bieber is currently available for preorder at comic book stores, as well as on Amazon.com.
