Harry Styles is all set to transform from a pop star to pop art in the brand-new comic book, ‘Fame: Harry Styles’. TidalWave Comics have chronicled all his achievements and the story of how he rose to fame in this comic book. It is written by Darren G. Davis, and is illustrated by Ramon Salas. The book is a 22-page comic in digital and print format, in both hard and soft cover. ‘Fame’ explores his childhood, his breakthrough with Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne as One Direction on ‘X Factor’ and his life as a solo artist through brightly coloured, superhero-style artwork and snappy captions.
“Harry Styles is arguably the most beloved male pop star in the world right now,” the description for the project read. “No matter what medium he’s occupying, his FAME continues to grow. For the first time, you can now read about his life story in comic book form.”
The illustrations of Styles feature him wearing some of his most iconic outfits from the plaid skirt in ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ music video to the ball gown and blazer from ‘Vogue’ cover. A panel also features the Pleasing founder’s avatar, drawn with a chiselled jaw and bright green eyes which look exactly like Styles’. It includes Styles’ red jumpsuit from ‘As It Was’ music video and him in a costume as his Marvel character, Eros.
Many artists including Lady Gaga, Lil Nas X, Beyoncé, Drake, Selena Gomez, Dolly Parton, Stevie Nicks and Dave Grohl have also served as comic book muses in the past.
“We’ve found a niche with our bio comics,” said TidalWave publisher Darren G. Davis. “Our success with this comic shows that there is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes or horror. With our bio comics, we strive to bring these new readers evenhanded, well-researched looks at some of their favourite celebrities.”
