Official Press Release

Gleeks are in for a treat this November when comics company Bluewater Productions releases the latest in its Fame series of biography comics, Fame: The Cast of Glee.

The 32-page comic book one shot takes a close look at the lives of the actors and creative talent that have made the FOX Broadcasting's series “Glee” such a runaway hit. “Glee” fans can learn about the paths that show mainstays Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer have taken on their way to fame.

The comic also highlights the career of “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy, and his steady rise to Hollywood phenomenon. The comic retails for $3.99. Fans can purchase it at comic book shops across the country and online at retailers such as Amazon.com.

Cameron Cooke and Patrick McCormack wrote the script for Fame: The Cast of Glee, while Ben Bradi handled the art duties. For Cooke, getting the chance to work on a comic about “Glee” was an opportunity too good to turn down.

“Working on Glee was a treat,” he said. “Being a fan of Ryan Murphy's previous work made it very easy to jump headfirst into Glee. It made it easy to see why people are so passionate about their love for this show. It's a phenomenon.”

Darren G. Davis, founder and president of Bluewater Productions, says that the “Glee” comic is just one more way to bring new fans to the world of sequential storytelling.

“Our Fame series has attracted an entirely new audience to the world of comics, whether they're fans of Lady Gaga or Twilight,” he said. “I expect that the same thing will happen with Fame: The Cast of Glee. I hope to see a lot of people who've never picked up comics before decide to pick up this book.”

Bluewater's Fame series ranks as a major success. It's celebrity comics devoted to Lady Gaga and Robert Pattinson both sold out their first printings. In the upcoming months the company will soon release comic autobiographies of Justin Bieber, Taylor Lautner and David Beckham.

Bluewater also publishes the Political Power and Female Force line of biography comics. The company's Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama comics also sold out their first runs.

Cooke expects the same success from Fame: The Cast of Glee. “Glee interests me for the same reasons comic books interest me,” Cooke said. “It gives a little bit of everything to everyone, and it seems to be made for the people who love it as much as it's made for the people who work on it. Being part of a collaborative effort to bring the story of the cast of Glee to comics has been an eye-opening experience that I'll never forget.”
