50 Cent Comic Book Coming
"Fame: 50 Cent" follows the unknown Curtis James Jackson III as he crafted a hip hop persona and began his climb up the music charts with monster rap hits like "In Da Club" and "How We Do."
The issue also addresses his drug-dealing and violent past, his well-documented public feuds with other rap culture figures as well as his lesser known years as a young up and coming boxer, his current title of entrepreneur and the one identity that changed his life-that of doting father.
"50 Cent, no doubt, has enjoyed a colorful, extraordinary and sometimes sordid life." said writer Dan Rafter. "Despite a broken home life and early run-ins with the law he found his niche. You don't sell 11 million records if you don't have some talent and market savvy; he's got plenty of both."
"Fame: 50 Cent," will also feature cover art by famed DC comic book artist Joe Phillips. The interior art was illustrated by J. Bruce Bogle. The issue will retail for $3.99 and be available through most online venues like Amazon.com as well as local comic book stores.

The comic allows Bluewater to delve into the celebrity culture and understand how a person rises to fame, deals with the new-found celebrity and continue to produce in the public eye. That includes actors, sports figures, recording artists and royals.
