Beyonce is Back! Hitting shelves in January 2011, “Fame: Beyonce” promises to “trace Beyonce’s rise through the music business, from her early days with Destiny’s Child to her booming solo career.” The 32-page comic will be written by CW Cooke with art by Alex Lopez. Back in September Lady Gaga and Bieber demanded a Cease and Desist to Bluewater.

According to writer CW Cooke, for a person seemingly always in the public
eye, Beyonce has led a relatively private life. Even the most avid Beyonce
fan, then, will learn something new when reading Fame: Beyonce, Cooke said.
³Working on Beyonce was quite an experience,² Cooke said. ³Everybody knows
who she is. And yet, there are so many little things and tidbits of
knowledge that seem to be passed up when people talk about her in the media.
³Getting to dive into her story and piece together her life was exciting,²
Cooke added. ³She¹s accomplished so much in so little time. She¹s had so
many ups and so few downs. Telling her story wasn¹t so much of a roller
coaster, but more of an exciting elevator ride.²
Darren Davis, publisher and founder of Bluewater Productions, said that he
hopes the Beyonce comic will again draw new readers to the world of comics
³Beyonce is such an amazingly charismatic presence,² Davis said. ³She has so
many fans. Hopefully many of them will pick up this comic, enjoy what they
see and go on to become regular comics readers. The comics industry needs
new readers. I hope that Bluewater¹s biography comics can bring them in.²
