New Preview of Robert Pattinson Comic-Bio
Usually they make movies out of comic book heroes. Now they make comic books out of movie actors.
Bluewater Comics’ latest edition in its FAME line is the biography of Robert Pattinson, best known for his portrayal of the vegetarian, mind-reading vampire, Edward Cullen (cue the screaming), in the ‘Twilight’ film saga.
Pattinson joins other famous names on the comic book shelves, from The Beatles to Michael Jackson — even Stephenie Meyer herself.
Readers will see comic book RPattz from his childhood in London, to his early movie roles in forgotten films, to his jump to fame with a role in ‘Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire’ right up through his more current work in ‘Remember Me.’
The book is filled with Pattinson’s own words, such as, “It’s one of my favorite books and one of my favorite scripts as well. It’s going to be a really, really good movie,” referring to his most recently wrapped film, ‘Bel Ami.’
The comic bio, written by Kimberly Sherman and illustrated by Nathaniel Ooten, hits the shelves at the end of May — a strategic release date since the highly-anticipated ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ opens on Jun. 30.
Kristen Stewart will have her own comic-bio on the shelves in June. In the meantime, bad news for Team Jacob: No word yet on a Taylor Lautner edition.
