Drake Comic Coming

The new "Fame: Drake" comic is set to be released in January 2012 and will feature the art of Mike Johnson and the cover by Joe Phillips.

He made a name for himself as the wheelchair bound Jimmy Brooks on "Degrassi: the Next Generation" but when Aubrey Graham went by his middle name, Drake, he rocketed to stardom. Now Bluewater Comics shares the story of how Drake went from Canadian teen-melodrama to the hip hop star that worked with Lil Wayne's stable of musicians with the comic "Fame: Drake."

"The New York Times" best selling writer Marc Shapiro, who is no stranger to the bio-comic, is giving his take on what makes Drake Drake. "What makes Drake such a distinctive creative personality is that he's not just one thing. His music encompasses hip-hop, rap, old style rhythm and blues, soul and pop. And he's somebody whose music is commercial enough that you can actually hear his music on the radio if you search long enough," said Shapiro, who also authored "Fame: Selena Gomez" and "Infamous: Lindsay Lohan."

Shapiro said that while researching Drake's life he found him to be "refreshingly real and down to earth."

"When was the last time you heard of a celebrity blowing off a lucrative tour to be at his mother's side during her stay in the hospital? Drake did just that. You could die of old age waiting to find somebody who has as much soul, creatively and as a human being, as Drake," said Shapiro.

The "Fame" line has been Bluewater Comics' signature series that features artists and entertainers that have caught the attention of pop culture.
Darren G. Davis, president of Bluewater Comics, said the purpose of the "Fame" series strives to both catch the attention of fans of entertainment and make reading exciting for younger fans.
"I have said countless times that growing up reading had been difficult for me, but thanks to comic books, I was able to learn. Now we can also show younger fans the fun they can have by reading," said Davis. "It makes sense for us to choose a subject matter like Drake that would entice younger readers to read."
