Millions know English actor Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, the vampire with a conscience in the films Twilight and The Twilight Saga: New Moon, the fantasy/romance movies based on Stephenie Meyer’s famous book series.
But there’s more to Pattinson than fake fangs, faraway looks and tousled hair. Pattinson is an accomplished musician, a former model and an actor who’s played both a wizard at Harry Potter’s Hogwarts School and the artist Salvador Dali.
Bluewater Productions in May will ship FAME: Robert Pattinson to comic book shops and retailers across the country. This 32-page comic will trace Pattinson’s career from his first performance in Tess of the D’Urbervilles at London’s Barnes Theatre to his star turn in the Twilight movies.
Writer Kim Sherman said that she is eager to introduce fans to the many sides of Pattinson.
“I love having the ability to introduce high-profile people to readers through an unexpected medium that is both written and visual,” Sherman said. “These biography comics are designed to illustrate interesting tidbits to fans about their favorite figureheads, and inspire them to learn more. I chose to conceptualize A-lister Robert Pattinson from a unique perspective, immersing the reader into the life of the talented actor beyond his most famous role.”
Count interior artist Nathaniel Ooten as one reader who’s gained a new appreciation for Pattinson’s career since reading Sherman’s script.
“Working on this book has opened an entirely new level of Rob Pattinson for me,” Ooten said. “Before starting, I was only aware of the ‘teenage vampire’ Pattinson. After reading the script, studying the subject and listening to his music, I not only became very interested in Pattinson’s future work, but also discovered a new appreciation for this ‘teenage vampire.’”
Bluewater president Darren G. Davis said that he expects Pattinson’s biography to be as popular among Twilight fans as was the comic biography of writer Meyer, which Bluewater published in November of 2009. That particular biography has sold out of several printings.
“Twilight fans want to know everything about the talented people who have brought them the story of Edward and Bella,” Davis said. “I’m pleased to be able to bring them Robert Pattinson’s story. It’s our hope that even the most devoted fans will discover a fact or two that takes them completely by surprise.”
FAME: Robert Pattinson is part of Bluewater’s much-publicized, and popular, line of biographical comics. The FAME series will also include comic biographies of Lady GaGa, 50 Cent, Tiger Woods and David Beckham. Bluewater Productions also publishes biographies of influential political figures such as Al Gore, Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama. Many of these comics, too, have sold out several printings.
VP Records has a new release that we feel will change the face of Reggae Music. Our Artist Romain Virgo will be releasing his introduction EP in March and debut album in May. In 2007 singer Romain Virgo, then just 17 years old, made history as the youngest person to win Digicel Rising Stars, this TV talent competition is the equivalent to the U.S. American Idol. Romain clinched the contest with his rollicking interpretation of Stevie Wonder’s “Sir Duke”, which earned rave reviews from the judges and a standing ovation from the studio audience. Romain also won the hearts of the TV viewers with his good-natured humility and robust vocals, which evoke the essence of revered soul stars Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye. He is currently enrolled at Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts in Kingston while he pursues his music dream. Surrounded by poverty and violence Romain pushes forward for a better future, a better Jamaica and a better world. Romain represents a positive side of Reggae. A genre that has been plagued by various negative images and themes; Romain writes his own songs and wants his music to make a difference worldwide. He recognizes the power that music has over people and wants to use his power to evoke good.

New Album In Stores March 9th, 2010
Kidz In The Hall have matured in their music to discover who they truly are as artists. Having the opportunity to reflect on their body of work and analyze both their strengths and weaknesses has enabled the group to redefine both their goals, aspirations and at the same time expose what the music industry can do to those closely involved with it.
Kidz In The Hall are embarking on their next journey into the LAND OF MAKE BELIEVE. For Naledge, MC of Kidz In The Hall, he sees the project as “the moment we have worked for has come to a crossroad. We strive for success in this music industry, but we have never taken time to look ourselves in the mirror and analyze what this industry has made us. As a lyricist, I used this album to serve as a soundtrack to my aspirations and to my downfalls, but also as a chance to evaluate who I am as a man compared to whom I envisioned myself to be.”
Examining the current climate of our world today, LAND OF MAKE BELIEVE, is a timely reminder for us all to take a step back and analyze how we can strive to be better and achieve more. Double-O highlights this further by saying that “The Land of Make Believe is different things for different people. For us it is the space between where we are now as artists and where we feel we should be. It’s the idea that until you actually get to your destination or goal you have to act like you are already there.”
The first single from the album, “FLICKIN”, currently available at iTunes worldwide, is a prime example of dichotomy of imagination and reality. The title is a colloquial Chicago term. Naledge explains “Flickin’” is the idea that at any point in time something is photo-ready or picturesque. When I was younger it was used to describe a person’s car, shoes, haircut, or outfit. Any material possession with physical beauty.” “Confidence is key” Double-0 adds, “The song should make you feel good when you look in the mirror regardless of what you have on.”
Kidz In The Hall have recently unveiled the second single, “JUKEBOX” featuring MC Lyte. The video, directed by BB GUN, will be impacting National Video Networks in early February. The group had the opportunity to perform the track and other key songs in front of MTV’s entire staff.
Just last year Kidz In The Hall released their critically acclaimed album, The In Crowd, (May 2008) which propelled them into the limelight with key tracks like “DRIVING DOWN THE BLOCK,” and “LOVE HANGOVER” featuring Estelle. With tremendous support from national video networks the videos for these songs were placed in heavy rotation and even highlighted on shows such as MTV’s TRL and BET’s 106 & Park.
Kidz In The Hall went on to land exciting licensing deals with their music featured in EA Sports Madden 09, Rockstar Game’s Midnight Club LA, Activision’s Pimp My Ride 2 and EA Sports upcoming game NBA LIVE 2010.
The group remained active touring both North America and Europe, performing with the likes of Method Man & Redman, Gym Class Heroes, Atmosphere, The Clipse, MURS, and as a part of Rock The Bells and Paid Dues Tours.
It was this heavy activity that caught the attention of REEBOK, who enlisted Kidz In The Hall to be the first group representing their GLOBAL REEBOK CLASSICS CAMPAIGN. Kidz In The Hall remixed Special Ed’s “I GOT IT MADE,” filmed a video for the track, and were featured in over 500 Foot Locker Locations.
Kidz In The Hall are excited for the world to hear their next project. Double-O proclaims, “Since we were backpackers on the first album and Hipsters on the second…I am interested to see what they’ll call us on this album…how about just Dope artists!”
