Do you go gaga for 'Gaga'? If so, then you may want to pick up the upcoming Lady Gaga comic book published by Bluewater Productions. According to a report over at MTV, Bluewater Productions will be releasing a new line of comics entitled 'FAME,' and that the first feature will appropriately be focusing on the successes of Lady Gaga, who's last album was ironically titled 'Fame Monster.' The comic will be structured in a similar format to Bluewater's ' Female Force' books and will be released this coming May for free comic book day. Hopefully the release of this book will get people who do not normally read comics to hit their local store. This is not the first time that Gaga will be stepping into the realm of comic books.  In fact, this past fall we got a look at her very own comic 'Lady Saga' which was exclusively available at Marc Jacobs retailers. The 'FAME' series will feature other pop-culture icons such as Robert Pattinson, 50 Cent, David Beckham and Taylor Swift. Bluewater president Darren G. Davis indicated that the purpose of the comic is to introduce comic books to audiences that normally would not read them.

“Over the past year we saw an opportunity to broaden the scope of who reads comics,” said Bluewater president Darren G. Davis, “There were many who had never picked up a graphic novel or comic book buy our biography titles like Female Force and Political Power. Fame is the natural extension of that trend.”

What do you guys think? Do you think you will be picking up the 'FAME' series, or do you think that this is just a gimmick? What do you think of the cover?
