He’s rocked the world as a solo artist and as the frontman of Black Sabbath, he’s starred in a popular reality show with his family, and he’s been the subject of documentaries. Now Ozzy Osbourne is featured in his own comic book. Ozzy Osbourne: The Metal Madman tells the famed heavy-metal singer’s outrageous life story in graphic novel form.
The comic is being released this week in print and digitally. The physical version is available exclusively at ComicFleaMarket.com, while the digital version is available at numerous online ebook sellers.
Ozzy Osbourne: The Metal Madman was co-written by Michael L. Frizell and Jayfri Hashim, the latter of whom is also responsible for the artwork. The comic also features a cover by respected horror artist Stefano Cardoselli.
“Ozzy’s legacy is well-known,” says Frizell. “A lot of research went into creating the script. One misstep, and the fans will know! Jayfri and I wanted to respect that legend — and the fans — by giving them something both familiar and unexpected.”
Ozzy Osbourne: The Metal Madman is part of Bluewater Productions’ popular Orbit series. The company also has issued biographical comics about such other music stars as Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Keith Richards, Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, Jerry Garcia, Kurt Cobain and others.
