Today, BTS is widely regarded as the most popular K-pop group in the world. The collective of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V and Jungkook formed in 2010 and has been topping charts and touring globally since.

The astronomic rise of BTS will be charted in a new manga series from Tidalwave Productions entitled FAME.

Written by Eric M. Esquivel and illustrated by Lucy Fidelis Arts, FAME will be 22 pages in length and is slated for release on January 10. It’ll be available as a soft copy, hard copy and in a digital format. For the hard copies of FAME, Paulo Teles Yonami designed the cover art with colors by Alexandre Starling.

BTS is currently on hiatus while serving in the South Korean military as part of the country’s mandated service.

“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to entertain ‘The BTS Army’ while the boys are putting their ‘Bulletproof Boy Scouts’ claim to the test in the actual South Korean military!,” Esquivel said in a statement.

“Exploring the comics universe with the BTS was a delightful journey, where every stroke, word, and scene became strokes of joy,” Fidelis said. “We crafted a captivating narrative that reflects the brilliance and magic of BTS’s extraordinary journey.”

BTS’ FAME manga is available for pre-order on Amazon.
