Media Release — Bluewater is pleased to announce a special comic book project featuring one of the most accomplished and well-known funnymen in American today, the one and only Conan O’Brien, quite possibly the most famous redhead alive. “FAME: Conan O’Brien” will be released in August 2011 and have a cover price of $3.99. The bio on the comedy star’s life will be written by CW Cooke and Patrick McCormack and drawn by Erick Adrian Marquez.
Conan O’Brien is without a doubt one of the most influential and funniest comedians of our. This comic will focus on the highlights of his remarkable life, from childhood dreams to writing for “The Simpsons” to replacing a legend and eventually becoming one to his battle with Jay Leno to keep “The Tonight Show”. Though he has not always tasted success or victory, he has remained his own man. His talent and ability to make people laugh has brought him fame, but it is the reservoir of goodwill he has built up by being a genuinely nice guy to close friends and fans alike that has enabled him to emerge, even from his setbacks, a brighter star than ever. All these years later, he has retained the distinct way of making people laugh. There are many comedians and talk show hosts in America but there is only one Conan O’Brien. This book shows not only the influences on his comedy but the events in his life that helped mold him into a one-of-a-kind national treasure.
Publisher Darren G. Davis said, “Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in Conan O’Brien becoming the superstar he is today, almost two decades after bursting on the national 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.”
“Working on Conan O’Brien was a dream come true,” says writer CW Cooke. “My co-writer Patrick McCormack and I dug deep to learn everything we could about this red-haired jokester that I’ve been a fan of for as long as I can remember.”
“Conan O’Brien is America’s Sweetheart. He won our hearts by being gracious and open after public turmoil fell on him. But he didn’t let it get him down. He kept telling jokes, kept being funny, and kept being who he always was: someone who made us laugh.”
Other titles from the Orbit line of comic book biographies are Stephen King, Howard Stern & Keith Richards.
