Charlie Sheen Gets a Comic Book

There’s not much left to laugh at when it comes to Charlie Sheen. Per tonight’s latest “Sheen’s Korner” Internet broadcast, the actor is still – albeit in a more scripted, Teleprompter form – desperately trying to channel the spirit of Hunter S. Thompson.

In lieu of accompanying illustrations from gonzo artist Ralph Steadman, Sheen fans can instead look forward to an upcoming graphic novel from Bluewater Productions. Other media stars given this treatment by the Vancouver, WA company include the much saner quartet of Oprah, Ellen DeGeneres, Barbara Walters, and Meredith Vieira, for the title Female Force: Women in Media.

Bluewater has been actively working the biographical, graphic novel beat. Last week for example, it released Fame: Beyonce, while other recent titles focused on Justin Bieber and Betty White have quickly sold out their runs.

The only Sheen detail Bluewater might want to tweak after tonight’s disturbing UStream monologue is the title. Rather than Infamous, a better fit might be Fear and Loathing on the Sitcom Trail.
