Productions has already completed comic book biographies of Twilight actors Robert Pattinson and
Kristen Stewart and of the author who first brought Twilight to life, Stephenie Meyer. In
August, the comics company will add actor Taylor Lautner to the mix.
Lautner, who plays shape shifter Jacob Black in the Twilight films, will get his own comic from
Bluewater this August. The 32-page Fame: Taylor Lautner will retail at comic shops,
Amazon.com and other online sites for $3.99.
Lautner was a relatively unknown actor until he made his debut in the
popular vampire-romance movies. Those days are over. Today, Lautner is
as much a household name as are Stewart and Pattinson.
Lautner is also a committed actor. He studied martial arts and packed on
30 pounds of muscle for his role in the Twilight movies.
Of course, Lautner's smile and chiseled features haven't hurt his
popularity, either, at least not among the movies' largely female
Kimberly Sherman, who's penned the biography comics of both Pattinson
and Stewart, also wrote the new Lautner comic. Warren Martineck, an
artist for DC Comics' WildStorm studio, provided the interior art, while
JuanMar Studios produced the comic's cover.
“The Twilight series has become a pop culture
phenomenon,” said Darren Davis, president and founder of Bluewater
Productions. “It's transformed previously unknown actors into
superstars. It seems that the same thing is happening with Taylor
Lautner. We at Bluewater are happy to bring Taylor's story to his fans,
and hope that his comic helps introduce these readers to the joys of
Bluewater Productions has carved out a niche for itself with its
top-selling line of biography comics. The company's Fame line of biographies, which

then at comic book stores on May26th as well as Amazon in which the
comics have ranked up to #300 on the site.
