Ozzy Osbourne is getting the comic book treatment with this week’s release of “The Metal Madman”, a new biography by Bluewater Productions.
Written by Michael L. Frizell and Jayfri Hashim with art by Hashim and a cover by famed horror artist Stefano Cardoselli, the bio – available in both print and digital editions – traces Ozzy’s history from Black Sabbath to solo superstardom.
“Ozzy’s legacy is well-known,” said 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.
“Writing about real people is often difficult, and when it’s someone like Ozzy who’s made himself tough to define and is a mainstay in the tabloids, we are challenged to find new ways to tell that well-known story.”
“Ozzy Osbourne: The Metal Madman” is due this week. The print version of the book is available only at Comic Flea Market at www.comicfleamarket.com, while the digital version can be download to your e-reader from wherever eBooks are sold.
Ozzy will headline the Monsters tour with Judas Priest and Motorhead starting in April before hosting OzzFiesta, a 5-day event set for Mexico in May.
This fall, the rocker will perform a month-long residency in Las Vegas with a new show called Hell Gate.
Ozzy’s wife and manager Sharon describes it as “a Halloween experience. It's a very state of the art, interactive show that Ozzy will put on with everything that goes with Halloween."
