J.K. Rowling to be the subject of a comic book
MTV is reporting today that Bluewater Productions, the company behind the Barack Obama, Stephenie Meyer, Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jackson comic books, will be releasing a comic book based on the life of J.K. Rowling.
The comic, written by Adam Gragg examines Rowling’s middle class upbringing, her time in Portugal teaching English, her meteoric rise with seven immensely successful books adapted into several high-grossing Hollywood blockbusters, and her post-Potter endeavors.
“She is a remarkable and multi-dimensional woman,’” Gragg noted, “Learning about who she is and how she struggled to become a success was a truly enlightening experience. Twelve publishers turned her down. If it weren’t for the daughter of a British publisher who liked Rowling’s first chapter of ‘Philosopher’s Stone’, we might never have met Harry Potter.”
