Coming this month: a comic book version of Robert Pattinson

By Kim Palacios

Can’t get enough Robert Pattinson? Soon, you’ll be able to see a new side of him with the comic book feature about his life.

This morning, MTV posted pages from the upcoming narrative about the actor with an exclusive preview of the “Fame: Robert Pattinson” comic.

The MTV exclusive includes some notes about the upcoming title, which is set to release later this month. Clicking on the main picture will take you to an 8-page gallery of scans from the book, which guides you through a mix of full-page illustrations of Rob and narrative pages.

For those who like the idea of an illustrated Rob, but were disappointed by the lack of resemblance between Rob and the Twilight graphic novel depiction of Edward, this new comic does a bit better by drawing directly from popular photos of the star.

Yet, more interesting than the illustrations (which pay fair, but not spectacular, homage to the actor) are quotations from Rob himself, which reveal tidbits about his life and career. We hear about early roles, such as his cut scene with Reese Witherspoon in “Vanity Fair”, and his take on the flawed relationship between Dali and Garcia Lorca in “Little Ashes”.

He also talks about how he views filming the Twilight Series in the grander scheme of a lifelong acting career. Says Rob, “I’m sick of people saying ‘You can only make those Twilight films—you’re nothing more than a fleeting star.’ I refuse to accept that!”
