Hollywood superstar Jennifer Lawrence has now been immortalized in comic book form! Bluewater Productions is releasing the latest addition to their “Fame” series, “Fame: Jennifer Lawrence.” The 32-page comic book will be available in print as well as digitally and, for the first time ever in Bluewater’s history, as an animated interactive comic book. Thanks to a partnership with Authorly, the book has been turned into an app that allows readers to engage with the book through “audio hotspots” that play sound effects and video clips. Narration, word-by-word highlighted text, basic animation, background music and much more are included in this interactive version.
The comic book biography was written by Michael Troy and illustrated by Ben Eargle and explores the life of Lawrence and her career, including films that have garnered her praise, such as “X-Men: First Class,” “The Hunger Games” and her lauded role in “Silver Linings Playbook” and her current Oscar nomination for “American Hustle.”
The comic book features three collectible covers each exclusively through Nook, Kindle or iTunes. Each cover is illustrated by a different artist; Iordan Terziiski for the Nook cover, the Kindle cover by Jaume Font and iTunes cover by Eargle.
“Jennifer Lawrence is a true inspiration as a talented actress and a down to earth young woman with amazing wit. I was happy to tell her tale.” said Troy in a statement.
“It was a lot of fun working on the book just because Jennifer is such an interesting person,” added Eargle. “All the different actors and actresses that she has worked with provided a lot of interesting material. She’s a very animated person, which works with my style!”
Chris Whitman, CEO of Authorly, also discussed working on the book. “We’ve loved getting the chance to bring Bluewater’s exciting stories to life with Authorly. Working on titles such as Katy Perry, One Direction, Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Child, and Dorian Gray has been fun and we can’t wait for readers to enjoy these stories as interactive apps!” he said in a statement. “It’s been a real win-win situation…we’ve helped Bluewater create some really fun, engaging apps, Bluewater has helped us gain exposure, and the readers and fans will get great content that they can now enjoy on their smartphones and tablets!”
Print copies of “Fame: Jennifer Lawrence” can be ordered for $3:99 at Comic Flea Market. The app is available on iTunes, Google Play, and the Amazon Appstore for $2.99.
