Lil Nas X rose to prominence when his hit single ‘Old Town Road’ went viral on TikTok. Since then, he has been smashing records and breaking glass ceilings. He was included on the Forbes 30 under 30 list in 2020 and named one of the most influential people of 2021 by TIME Magazine.
TidalWave Comics’ publisher and chief Darren G. Davis shared that they “found a niche with our bio comics.” “Our success with this comic shows that there is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes or horror.”
He also added, “With our bio comics, we strive to bring these new readers evenhanded, well-researched looks at some of their favorite celebrities.”
Launched in 2010, FAME is an anthology that features iconic personalities and tells their life stories and career achievements through the years. The series FAME previously featured Lady Gaga, Madonna, Beyonce, David Bowie, and Tina Turner, among many celebrities who made a great impact on the world.
The comic book is written by Davis and illustrated by Victor Moura. Joe Phillips also illustrated both the digital comic book and in print cover.
FAME: Lil Nas X is now available on Amazon and can be downloaded on ComiXology, DriveThru, Comics, Google Play, Overdrive, DriveThru, Kindle, Biblioboard, Nook, Kobo, and other eBook outlets.
