fameprincecoverBluewater Productions will be releasing a new comic book about the life of the music icon Prince.

"Fame Prince" comic book was released last week and is available in print and digital.

Prince Rogers Nelson, started a musical revolution with the hits "1999," "Little Red Corvette," "When Doves Cry," "Purple Rain," "Kiss," and more, challenging even the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson, for chart supremacy during the 1980s. The book chronicles his meteoric rise to dominance in the pop/funk music scene.

Michael L. Frizell wrote the 32-page comic book with art by Ernesto Lovera. The comic book features two collectible covers by artist Iordan Terziiski and Ernesto Lovera.

"Writing "Fame: Prince" was like reliving my teenage years. For me, the music scene wasn't defined by Michael Jackson – despite his success with "Thriller," said Frizell. "The (19)80s, and music in general for me, were defined by Prince. He takes chances in his music, doesn't sell out as an artist in order to make money and still ends up on top. To this day, his music speaks to me. I hope I was able to bring some of his power to the comic page through my script."

Bluewater has focused other musicians in the past such as Madonna, Michael Jackson, Drake, 50 Cent, Beyoncé, Adele, Cher and more.
Upcoming biography comic book subjects include Sharon Osbourne and Johnny Depp.
