June 25, 2009, the world was shocked by the loss of Michael Jackson, the King of Pop. Adored by millions since his debut as part of The Jackson 5 in 1968, Jackson wowed music lovers with iconic albums like Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad.
As controversial as he was talented, Michael Jackson was a polarizing figure for many, but most can agree that he was a phenomenal performer, with 13 Grammys, 13 number-one singles, and 750 million records sold in his lifetime.
Today, Bluewater Productions announced that they will publish a comic to memorialize Jackson’s life, called Tribute: Michael Jackson–King of Pop. Due out October 28, this comics biography will celebrate Michael Jackson’s life and accomplishments, and will feature a foreword and cover by Giuseppe Mazzola, a friend of the entertainer.
With two covers to choose from, including a photo cover, this comic is a special addition to Bluewater’s line of biographical comics, including Female Force and Political Power.
