Bluewater Productions has announced the release of a brand new comic book biography on the life of a rock icon as part of their popular Orbit series. "Ozzy Osbourne: The Metal Madman" will be released this week and will be available in both print and digital.
Jump on board the crazy train and read about the artist who occupies a special place in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. As the godfather of heavy metal, Ozzy Osbourne pioneered his dark sound as the front man for BLACK SABBATH. As a solo artist, he has forged a legacy, influencing modern rock, reality television, and more. "Orbit: Ozzy Osbourne: The Metal Madman" was written by Michael L. Frizell and Jayfri Hashim with art by Hashim, and features a cover by famed horror artist Stefano Cardoselli.
"Ozzy's legacy is well known," said Frizell. "A lot of research went into creating the script. One misstep, and the fans will know! Jayfri and I wanted to respect that legend — and the fans — by giving them something both familiar and unexpected. Writing about real people is often difficult, and when it's someone like Ozzy who's made himself tough to define and is a mainstay in the tabloids, we are challenged to find new ways to tell that well-known story."
"There are some celebrities we have done that are just media sensations, then you have someone like Ozzy who defines media sensation," said Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis. "I have respect for him and his story after working on this comic book. We have done one with his wife Sharon Osbourne that did well. The Osbournes are fascinating people."
The Orbit comic line joins Bluewater's biographical lines Fame, Female Force and Tribute, all of which have been embraced by the media, telling the life stories of Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Prince, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Keith Richards and more. Coming soon are comic books featuring George Harrison and the cast of "Doctor Who".
