Bluewater Publishing "Charlie Sheen: Infamous"

Actor Charlie Sheen will now be the subject of a Bluewater Productions comic book titled "Infamous: Charlie Sheen."

The 32-page book will provide a framework for Sheen's recent 'media-captured outbursts' and also show the path of how the actor reached this point in his career.

"Doing a book about Charlie Sheen is different from most 'bio-comics' in that the news is literally happening as we speak," said "Infamous" writer Mark Shapiro. "As I am writing this I am constantly aware of what could change at the last possible minute. This is when comic-book writing is more like journalism."

According to Bluewater, the title is "an unorthodox take on an unorthodox career."

"We're not looking to exacerbate what could be a sad situation," said Bluewater president Darren Davis. "I want to make sure that part of the focus of this issue deals fairly with mental health and substance abuse issues."

"There are those who are going to complain that we are exploiting Sheen. If Sheen contacted us right now and wanted us to donate some of the potential profits to a charity of his choosing, we would happily do so."

The book will be drawn by Fred Grivaud and will feature cover art by Joe Phillips.
