Book Description

22 Jun 2010 Fame
Though his star meter skyrocketed with the global sensation, Twilight, Robert Pattinson's ability and dedication to acting has him poised for lasting success beyond the series of vampire flicks. Unlike a simple chronological biography, this Fame book uses an ambrosial, sensory approach to decontruct each of Robert Pattinson's roles.

1.0 out of 5 stars Whose face is that? 23 Jun 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
It's pretty much a given that if you're not Amish or in a coma, you've probably heard of Robert Pattinson by now.

It's also a given that anything related to the "Twilight" series or its stars is going to sell insanely well, even if it's a piece of garbage. And unfortunately, "Fame: Robert Pattinson" IS a piece of garbage -- a clumsy, surreal and slow graphic novel with some wretched illustrations (why can't his face look the same from one panel to the next?!).

As you'd expect, it cobbles together a brief biography of Pattinson's life thus far -- his childhood, his family, and his career prior to being cast in the "Twilight" movies. Unsurprisingly it focuses mostly on those movies and the fame resulting from them, and on "introducing fans to the many sides of Pattinson."

Since this is Bluewater Press -- who brought us that nightmarish Stephenie Meyer comic, as well as comics about the fascinating lives of Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama -- you pretty much know what this comic book is. It's a blatant cash-in, with "quality" ranking somewhere around fifth place.

Most of this comic book is a mass of pasted-together quotations from various interviews, which are threaded on a slow-moving, clunky narrative that doesn't have enough space to really be called a biography. The actual facts are pretty generic, but tarted up with really bad prose ("... his stunning, marblesque features and an ability to sparkle" -- marblesque?).

The worst part is the artwork. Seriously, this got PUBLISHED? The art is ghastly and amateurish at best, and nightmarish at worst -- even when the artist blatantly copies movie stills, the results are disastrous (Pattinson and Daniel Radcliffe are almost pushed out of the "Harry Potter" illustration).

And said artist doesn't appear able to draw Pattinson unless he's tracing photographs. His appearance changes drastically, constantly and randomly -- at various times he looks like a blonde Neanderthal, Donald Trump, George W. Bush, Kurt Cobain, Frankenstein's monster, Tom Waits, the Old Man of the Mountain and that creepy homeless dude who talks to air molecules.

"Fame: Robert Pattinson" is a perfect example of how NOT to write and illustrate a successful comic book. But I'll admit: it is fun to play "whose face is that?" with the ghastly illustrations.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love Robert Pattinson, not so much this Comic! 26 July 2010
By Barbara - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The cover I recieved was different then the one shown, which was beautiful. Other than that the art in the comic sucked. I loved the facts inside, some which I didn't know. My Recommendation, look inside and decide for yourself if you want to give this author $4.00 of your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars positive book for the Twilight fans! 4 May 2012
By Grayson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is a great biography book! I learned a lot that I did not know, and it was fun to read. Who would of ever thought that a comic book can be in a biography format. I think these are great collectibles as well as a fun read. I really enjoyed the artwork as well - very classic and cool!
