Highlight Story

Michael Jackson has died, but his fans will feel the King of Pop’s presence in his music, videos and his comic books.

In October, Michael Jackson will be memorialised in comic book form in Tribute: Michael Jackson, King of Pop, a biography comic from Bluewater Productions, the same publisher responsible for the Female Force comics and forthcoming Political Power books (as well as the Bo Obama comic focusing on the US President’s puppy).

The special issue will feature a wraparound cover and forward by Giuseppe Mazzola, a member of The Official Michael Jackson Fan Club and a personal friend of the musician. Wey-Yuih Loh (Political Power: Colin Powell) and Giovanni Timpano (Vincent Price Presents) will write and illustrate the book, respectively.

Of course, this isn’t the first time that Jackson will cross paths with the paneled page. The pop sensation was a well-known comic book lover with a wide collection of comics memorabilia.

In fact, Jackson was once even close to purchasing Marvel Comics during the 1990s, and had a great affinity for the much beloved Stan Lee.
