Comic by MJ and G. Chopra will be released 2010

  • on: December 29, 2009, 07:31:39 AM
Just to refresh our memeories:

Does anybody think the comic-plot of "Fated" - written by MJ and Gotham Chopra - about the Pop Icon "Gabriel Star" (another arch angel, hehe...) could be somehow related to the hoax? Some similarities can`t be denied ...

A small hardcover is supposed to released in June 2010 by Randomhouse (Bertelsmann) and this was kind of pre-announced during the Frankfurt Book Fair last October ...

yeah, MJloveyou said that too :D She heard it of someone else that Michael made a comic about someone faking his death and jumped of a building or something :) Maybe it is that.
And Michael...L.O.V.E or something said also something about a comic right?

Here is the copied/pasted article (link above):

MICHAEL JACKSON-PENNED POSTHUMOUS COMIC BOOK/GRAPHIC NOVEL
Michael Jackson-Penned Posthumous Comic Book Drawing Fair Chatter
By Rachel Deahl -- Publishers Weekly, 10/14/2009 11:05:00 AM
While there was some question as to the foot traffic in the rights center during the first day of the 2009 Frankfurt Book Fair—one American noted the sparse number of occupied mailboxes as a sign that the fair is sluggish while another pointed to full tables as a sign it’s business as usual—a handful of titles were drawing buzz, and some high advances, after the close of day one.
One book generating lots of conversation is a graphic novel project by the King of Pop. Yes, you read that correctly. Apparently Michael Jackson was working on a comic book for years with friend (and son of Deepak) Gotham Chopra and now Random House’s Villard imprint is prepping to release the fruits of this seemingly unlikely collaboration. The book, Fated, is about a Jackson-esque pop icon named Gabriel Star whose fame has left him isolated and emotionally cut-off. After a suicidal swan dive from his hotel one night, Star survives only to see his celebrity grow and discover that he’s becoming, per the publisher, “something not quite human.” No word yet from Random House on foreign sales, but we hear the house is showing bits of the book to foreign houses. The title’s slated for a June 2010 hardcover U.S. release—the art’s black and white and the book is small format—and Mukesh Singh is illustrating.

Am I now stupid and it just means something like "working title"? Or does it mean what I think it might?
I'm German, so I don't know if this word is used for something like "work in progress"...  :oops:

And, this (2009-11-03) date format always confuses me:
is that November 3rd, or March 11th?

Slated for release June 2010.  Hmmm.  
I emailed Random House and asked if in fact this was true and if we can expect it in June of 2010.
I'll let everyone know if they respond.

Oh?  So much to keep track of.  Is this through his Twitter Account?  I have been trying to avoid Twitter...I'd be on my computer 24/7 with all the clues.

Yes, I thought he said it on his Twitter page.
