This 40-page graphic novel will be chronicling this saga, “FAME: Big Time Rush: The Graphic Novel ” will explore all sides of this incredibly popular group, from their childhoods to the huge successes they are today.
“Nickelodeon has been a staple of television for so long that we forget how important it is to children as they grow up”, says writer CW Cooke. “”Big Time Rush” gives boys and girls teenage role models that they can look up to without their parents being scared for them.”
“Well, I have to say the book was great fun,” says artist Erick Orlando Baez, because I have always worked on the Italian-styled layouts, which is rather strict, consisting usually of six panels per page. Having all this freedom from Bluewater has been both exciting and somewhat scary. I hope I managed to do a good job. The subject, instead, was rather descriptive, and I’m used to that, so I think I got into it quickly enough.”
