A release date has not been confirmed (rumored for December 7th), but it is available for pre-order at Amazon!
Back in February, we told you about that “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson would receive his own comic book biography, following on the heels of such notable pop-culture celebrities as Lady GaGa, “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling, Michael Jackson, and even his “Twilight” co-star, Kristen Stewart.
Hitting shelves at the end of May, “Fame: Robert Pattinson” is the latest in Bluewater Productions’ popular line of bio-comics. The 32-page comic promises to “trace Pattinson’s career from his first performance in Tess of the D’Urbervilles at London’s Barnes Theatre to his star turn in the Twilight movies,” and features a script by Kim Sherman and interior art by Nathaniel Ooten.
Bluewater has provided Splash Page readers with an exclusive, six-page preview of the “Fame: Robert Pattinson” comic, as well as your first look at a brand new cover for the issue.
I’ll have to get my hands on one of these . I love the new cover , something was just a bit “off” with the previous one ( above ).

LADY GAGA is to kick off a new comic book series focusing on the lives of pop culture icons.
American publisher Bluewater Productions announced the launch of the new series, to be called Fame.
The first issue, featuring the life story of the US singer, will be out in time for Free Comic Book Day on May 5.
Recently, pop culture artist Brian Einersen announced an entirely separate comic called Lady Saga, inspired by the pop diva and featuring fictional adventures in the world of fashion.
Future issues of Bluewater’s Fame series will focus on such stars as Robert Pattinson, 50 Cent, David Beckham and Taylor Swift.
Bluewater president Darren G. Davis said: “Over the past year we saw an opportunity to broaden the scope of who reads comics.
“There were many who had never picked up a graphic novel or comic book but buy our biography titles like Female Force and Political Power. Fame is the natural extension of that trend.”
Davis, formerly a marketing executive for E! Entertainment Television and Lionsgate, said the multiple printings of his tribute comic Michael Jackson: King of Pop, which Ireported previously, convinced him to expand into the new series.
“Fame gives us the ability to tell more interesting stories about a wider variety of notable personalities. Conversely, it allows us to focus the scope of our other biography titles to more socially and political important figures.” Davis added.
Biography comics have already been published on such icons and celebrities as Harry Potter author JK Rowling, Twilight writer Stephenie Meyer and Princess Diana.
Bluewater has also announced its biography title release schedule for the first half of 2010.
Upcoming issues of the Female Force series include Nancy Pelosi, Michelle Obama: Year One and Ellen DeGeneres. Other biographies filling out the first half of the year’s schedule include Supreme Court justice Sonia Sotomayor, news anchor Meredith Vieira, and novelist Anne Rice.
The Political Power series will feature Al Gore, Nelson Mandela and Bill Clinton followed by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Al Franken, and Rush Limbaugh.
“People seem to enjoy debating whether this person or that are worthy of our biographies. Whereas some subjects have more influence on our social, cultural or political landscape than others, the bottom line is we try to choose subjects that have compelling or important stories to tell,” Davis said.
