Oh No: Justin Bieber Comic Book Hits Stores Today

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 8:56 AM


You read that right, folks: The Biebster is now a comic book hero. A 32-page illustrated screed glamorizing his ridiculously short life is available for the price of a fancy taco starting today.

All expectations are that it will sell out.

So is this a sign of the apocalypse, or just another notch on the bedpost of mindfuck reality? 

We consider our options after the jump.

"Fame: Justin Bieber" traces the hair-flip-king's life from his minor beginnings in public housing, to his days as a YouTube sensation, to his current status as playboy-rapper-in-training. (Or maybe he's not in training?)

It's all part of the "Fame" series of comic books -- the same folks we can blame for recent biographical comics on such real-life superheroes as David Beckham and Taylor Lautner. 

Bieber's, we're guessing, might be a bit more popular. Should you want to find a copy near you (we won't tell anyone), you may search for one here.

As for the apocalypse vs. hum-drum take on this, we're voting for apocalypse. Any kid who can launch himself to megastardom via the Internet, prove a capable rapper, and get a comic book made about him at age 16 is most likely an alien spy plotting our destruction. Or the next Jesus. 

Either way, the end is nigh.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
