In honor of the upcoming release of ‘The Green Lantern,’ Bluewater Productions is releasing a comic book titled ‘Fame: Ryan Reynolds’ to honor the life and career of the actor portraying the superhero. The 32-page comic book, which was written by Mark Poulton and illustrated by Dexter Weeks, follows Reynolds’ up-and-coming roles in Canada and his rise to fame in the U.S.

Fame: Ryan Reynolds, which is retailing for $3.99 at local comic book stores, larger book chain stores such as Barnes and Noble and online venues such as Amazon, chronicles the actor’s breakthrough role in 2002’s ‘National Lampoon’s Van Wilder.’ The comic book also shows how he became an A-lister and leading man in 2009’s ‘The Proposal.’

The independent production studio decided to feature Reynolds in its newest comic because he “has become a real hero to the fanboy community with his ability to tell a joke, get the girl, and battle supervillians on screen. Add to it, that he’s a genuine fan of comics is icing on the cake,” Poulton said.
