Taylor Lautner is getting the comic book treatment: The bulked-up 18-year-old hunk joins his Twilight co-stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson as the latest celeb having his life story reincarnated on the pages of a graphic novel from Bluewater Productions’ Fame Comics series.
Due in stores this August, Fame: Taylor Lautner is a 32-page comic that details Taylor’s rise from child stardom in the comedy Sharkboy & Lavagirl to status as an official teen heartthrob after he packed on the pounds to play Jacob Black in the The Twilight Saga. He studied martial arts and packed on 30 pounds of muscle for his role as the lovelorn werewolf.
“The Twilight series has become a pop culture phenomenon,” Darren Davis, president and founder of Bluewater Productions, said Monday. “It’s transformed previously unknown actors into superstars. It seems that the same thing is happening with Taylor Lautner. We at Bluewater are happy to bring Taylor’s story to his fans, and hope that his comic helps introduce these readers to the joys of graphic storytelling.”
Kimberly Sherman — who penned the biography comics for Pattinson and Stewart — also wrote the new Lautner comic. Warren Martineck, an artist for DC Comics’ WildStorm studio, provided the interior art, while JuanMar Studios drew the cover.
