Hollywood titan Tyler Perry is taking on a brand-new medium as a comic book character.
Bluewater Productions is bringing Perry’s inspiring story to life as part of their popular FAME series.
“There are some celebrities we have done that are just media sensations, then you have someone like Tyler Perry who is a major inspiration to so many people. I have such respect for him and his story after working on this comic book,” said Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis.
Although the comic book is all about the Madea director, Perry is not directly involved in the project.
Bluewater Productions’ FAME series focuses on the real lives of celebrities in a comic-like setting, and in the past has included the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé.
