Charlie Sheen to get comic book treatment

Calling himself a Vatican assassin warlock with tiger blood and Adonis DNA, Charlie Sheen sounds like something of a superhero — or a villain, depending on whom you ask. So it's not surprising that the actor's life is being turned into a comic book.

"Infamous: Charlie Sheen," from Bluewater Productions, will track the actor's career path all the way up to his current public outbursts, and will also depict his battle with drugs and alcohol.

"Doing a book about Charlie Sheen is different from most bio comics in that the news is literally happening as we speak," says Mark Shapiro, who is writing the 32-page comic book. "Who knows what he's going to say or do next and how will that fit into the context of telling his story. 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."

Adds Bluewater Productions president Darren Davis, "We're not looking to exacerbate what could be a sad situation; a public person self-destructing on camera. We can all laugh [at] how outrageous Sheen is behaving, all waiting for the next 'Duh, winning,' moment, but I want to make sure that part of the focus of this issue deals fairly with mental health and substance abuse issues… 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."

"Infamous: Charlie Sheen," which sells for $3.99, will be released this summer and can currently be pre-ordered on Amazon.com and at comic book shops.

    I agree with all the psychiatrists...Charlie Sheen is Bipolar and this is his manic phase. It is sad to see how many lives he is ruining and affecting with his behavior. I find it appalling that a comic book company would publish and give creedance to such behavior.

    It was not proffesional of Dr. Dru to diagnose Charlie sheen without seeing him or doing bloodwork, etc. Charlie Sheen is exhibiting the same behaviors that you see in people with serious drug/alcohol problems. The man needs rehab, then he could be a real WINNER, get his career back and be a role model for others facing the same drug and alchohol addictions.

    I wish Charlie Sheen would just fade away!!! I am so sick of seeing his face and hearing of what new thing he has said or done!
    Surley there is someone more worthy to be in the news than this idiot that has lost his way and has no intention of sorting his life out.

      This is unkind of you to say those ngative words against Charlie. He is embattled and being driven out of work and you dont even pity this wronged guy? Perhaps, he is the center of all kinds of news becuz he is an ICON and beiing a Charlie Sheen is Phenomenal, So popular and WINNING. I drink his Tigerblood and it is awesome.

    I'd like to be a fly on the wall when he sobers up and sees what a looneytoon he has been these past few weeks.. I think "winning" will become "embarrassed".

    Well it is about time this hero of the masses with torpedos of truth gets some kind of publication to highlight his awsomeness. Who needs Jesus, the Sheen machine is the true messiah. He doesn't cure others he cures himself.
