Capitalizing on Madness — Charlie Sheen Comes to Comics

It was only a matter of time before the comic book biz jumped on the fruitcake bandwagon and tried to wring some dollars out of our obsession with the new public face of madness and drug abuse.

That’s right, according to ICv2, Bluewater Comics is releasing “Infamous: Charlie Sheen”, a 32 page biography of the current public meltdown king.

The comic is written by Mark Shapiro and is drawn by Fred Grivaud, who both must have had a field day on this one.  According to Bluewater Comics’ President, Darren Davis, though, the comic is not going to be exploitive in any way, rather it will “have a strong message warning of the dangers of substance abuse and the seriousness of mental health issues.”

Sure it will.

You’ll have to wait until the summer to plunk $3.99 down on this beauty.  By then, Mr. Sheen shall have either faded back into his own stupour, written a best selling self-help book, joined Fox News, cleaned up to the point where nobody cares, or died. 

Anyway, with the attention-span of the American public, this one promises to be too little, too late.

And Mr. Sheen has pretty much been a cartoon character for most of his life.  Do we really need to see him in a comic book?
