(Sub) "Female Force:
Cher" is the new biography comic book is due out in December 2011
and it shares how the woman born Cherilyn Sarkisian came to be known
by one name - Cher!
"We have been creating the biographies of the famous in a sequential
art form for almost two years and it was only a matter of time
before we got to this icon," said Darren G. Davis, publisher of
Bluewater Comics. "Her life has been marked failures and successes,
but she still stands boldly for herself and for her friends and we
had to tell her story."
"Female Force: Cher" turns back time and tells how this platinum
selling singer became an award winning actress and a performer for
Writer Marc Shapiro said Cher's life and career "reads like a comic
book." "The clothes, the times, the attitudes of the decades she's
lived through. The different styles of music she's been involved in.
So much of what Cher has experienced is so flamboyant, over the top
and just plain out there," said Shapiro. "She has been very much the
real life equivalent of a superhero, and writing about Cher, to a
large degree, has been just about letting my imagination go."
The 32-page comic features the art by Zach Bassett and the inks of
Warren Montgomery as well as a cover by provided by DC Comics Joe
Cher was so proud of her
son Chaz Bono on "Dancing with the Stars" that she broke into tears.
The "Burlesque" songstress was overwhelmed with emotion when
watching his performance from the audience seat during the October
10 episode of the dancing competition.
In an all-capital letter tweet, Cher wrote, "Omg! I was crying !
Wasnt expecting 2 b so nervous ! Broke my bracelet clapping ! I'm so
proud !! Chaz was great! Loved David Arquette 2nd." Earlier in the
day, she posted, "On way to DWTS ! I'm very TRIBAL ! Pauli will take
pic ! If it's good I'll send Wish chaz luck !!! I'm here !"
Cher's indeed seen standing up among the crowd cheering and
applauding Chaz. Another member of the family spotted coming to
support him was his stepmother Mary Bono. "It was great to have
everyone here. It pumped me up. I know my mom was really proud of me
and that was awesome. I'm glad that whatever we're doing is touching
people," he gushed.
However, Chaz kept his full focus on his performance once he was on
stage. "When we're dancing I try to just focus on [Lacey] and what
we're doing," he said. "It was a great night. Last week was a hard
week and everyone knew I was kind of feeling bad about it, so to
come back this week and have my whole family there it was amazing."
That Monday night, Chaz danced paso doble to the theme of "Rocky".
He received praises from judges Len Goodman and Bruno Toli. The
former said, "Like Rocky, you're 'getting stronger!' It wasn't
exactly a knockout performance, but it was your best to date," while
the latter added, "Chaz, in the true spirit of Rocky, no matter how
many knock you take, you keep coming back."
He extended his gratitude by posting a short message on Twitter, and
gave a shout-out to his dance partner Lacey Schwimmer. "Thanks to
everyone for the support. I had an awesome time dancing the Rocky
theme with @LaceySchwimmer and my whole family in the audience!" he
