Lady Gaga portrayed in a comic book
Hollywoodnews.com: A Lady Gaga comic book?
Well, sort of. And she won’t be beating up criminals around Gotham.
Bluewater Productions is releasing the first issue of its adult-demo comic “Fame” tomorrow.
The comic book follows the late Rolling Stone rock critic Lester Bangs, a character who was also depicted in Cameron Crowe’s “Almost Famous.” Though Bangs died at the age of 33 in 1982, the comic book shows him as a fanatic of Lady Gaga after he watches one of her videos on MTV. Bangs goes haywire and dreams about being in the “Paparazzi” video with her. He another panel, he dresses up in a wig for a rendition of “Polker Face,” according to the New York Times.
The Times wasn’t impressed with how little of Lady Gaga is in the issue, despite her being on the cover:
The strangest part of the comic is the scant biographical information about Lady Gaga. It consists of one mid-point page, set during her pre-celebrity days, and it comes out in a downpour: “I never liked school. Everyone thought I was a freak.” “The nuns didn’t like me.” “I didn’t want to play with the other kids. I was too busy imagining that I was Judy Garland.” “I used to roll my skirt up way too high. I liked being … naughty.”
