Letterman has inherited the mantel of late night royalty from Johnny Carson, he has redefined late night for everyone else that has come after him This week he will be the subject of a new comic book about his life “FAME: David Letterman.
David Letterman is the true king of late night comedy. Right behind Johnny Carson, one man has been consistently funny, charming, and downright easy on the eyes since the dawn of his days. David Letterman might have a weird knack for comedy, but his story is something to behold. Come take a look at the man behind “Stupid Human Tricks”, “Top Ten Lists”, and “Will It Float?”
“Letterman’s story is a pretty amazing one and yes we do address the late night wars in this comic book, I think they were an important part of television history,” said publisher Darren G. Davis.
Released on March 13, “FAME: David Letterman” is written by CW Cooke and art by Noumier Tawilah.
“I had quite a lot of fun working on the David Letterman book. As part of that, I watched a lot of shows and went through tons of screen captures to catch the essentials of Dave and his guest’s expressions. During the coloring of the book, I came up with a color palette inspired by the original colors of the show, thus giving readers the show’s feel and breath while reading the comic,” said artist Noumier Tawilah
