It's also a given that anything related to the "Twilight" series or its stars is going to sell insanely well, even if it's a piece of garbage. And unfortunately, "Fame: Robert Pattinson" IS a piece of garbage -- a clumsy, surreal and slow graphic novel with some wretched illustrations (why can't his face look the same from one panel to the next?!).
As you'd expect, it cobbles together a brief biography of Pattinson's life thus far -- his childhood, his family, and his career prior to being cast in the "Twilight" movies. Unsurprisingly it focuses mostly on those movies and the fame resulting from them, and on "introducing fans to the many sides of Pattinson."
Since this is Bluewater Press -- who brought us that nightmarish Stephenie Meyer comic, as well as comics about the fascinating lives of Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama -- you pretty much know what this comic book is. It's a blatant cash-in, with "quality" ranking somewhere around fifth place.
Most of this comic book is a mass of pasted-together quotations from various interviews, which are threaded on a slow-moving, clunky narrative that doesn't have enough space to really be called a biography. The actual facts are pretty generic, but tarted up with really bad prose ("... his stunning, marblesque features and an ability to sparkle" -- marblesque?).
The worst part is the artwork. Seriously, this got PUBLISHED? The art is ghastly and amateurish at best, and nightmarish at worst -- even when the artist blatantly copies movie stills, the results are disastrous (Pattinson and Daniel Radcliffe are almost pushed out of the "Harry Potter" illustration).Read more ›

This was an interesting graphic novel type comic book. However this is for teenagers and should not have the True Blood adds or any other adult theme adds in it.Published on October 14, 2010 by Chloe
