The comic, titled "Fame: Britney Spears," chronicles the popstar's rise to fame and the difficulties in her personal life. It was written by Paul McCray and illustrated by Ricardo Jaime.

"She is far more complicated than most people realize. No matter what preconceptions you have about her, there will always be more layers and surprises," McCray said in a statement. "Beyond the performer, there is a real human being there, struggling for a real life, struggling to connect with her art, and struggling to be understood."

Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis noted that the Spears' complex life reflects what the core of the "Fame" series tries to achieve.

"She was created in the Internet Age to be put on a pedestal, but no one can stand the glaring lights of celebrity that intensely," he said. "The title seeks to find the person within."

A sneak peek at the 32-page issue can be found on MTV's website, and you can buy it for $3.99 at online venues like Amazon.com or in comic book stores.
