Artists at Bluewater Productions have turned the Black Sabbath leader's life story into a picture book, titled Orbit: Ozzy Osbourne: The Metal Madman.

Writer Michael L. Frizell says, "Ozzy's legacy is well known. A lot of research went into creating the script. One misstep, and the fans will know!"

Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis adds, "There are some celebrities we have done that are just media sensations, then you have someone like Ozzy who defines media sensation. I have respect for him and his story after working on this comic book. We have done one with his wife Sharon Osbourne."

Prince, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and Keith Richards have been among the comic book subjects for Bluewater and the writers and artists are currently working on comics featuring George Harrison and the cast of Doctor Who.
