Madonna: the comic book

MADONNA'S life story is to be documented in a comic book.

The highs and lows of the 52-year-old singer's phenomenal career - which has spanned almost 30 years - will be encapsulated in a 32-page graphic novel produced by publishers Bluewater Productions Inc. as part of their 'Female Force' series, which has previously featured the likes of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Sarah Palin and Barbara Walters.

Jason Schultz, executive vice president of Bluewater, said: "Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in Madonna becoming the phenomenon she remains to this day, more than a quarter-century after she burst upon the scene.

"A visual medium provides perspective that is not only accessible but more relatable to the average person without losing any of the information involved."

Penned by C.W. Cooke and drawn by Michael Johnson, the comic book is due for release in August.

Cooke added: "Most pop stars owe everything to this woman. It's amazing all of the things that she's done in her lifetime, and I have a feeling that this is still only the beginning."
