Howard Stern to get comic book treatment

Howard Stern is coming to a comic stand near you.

The radio shock jock will see his life story play out in the pages of a comic book from Bluewater Productions that will come out in April, the company said on Wednesday.

The comic book, which will retail for $3.99, will chronicle Stern's rise to fame, and the unique and no-holds barred style he brought to broadcasting, as well as his move to Sirius satellite radio in 2006.

The comic is titled "Orbit: Howard Stern," BluewaterProductions said. The company plans other biography comic sunder the "Orbit" title.

Stern, 57, describes himself as the "king of all media" for his work outside radio, which includes TV shows, books and appearing as himself in the 1997 movie "Private Parts."

Stern often swears on air and features strippers and other adult content on his show. He was repeatedly fined when on terrestrial radio.

Stern signed a new five-year contract in December with Sirius XM Radio.
