50 Cent Turning Self-Help Book "The 50th Law" Into 'SmartComic' Book
Rapper 50 Cent's best-selling book “The 50th Law” with author Robert Greene is being turned into a comic book.
The Long Island Press reports that 50 and Robert Greene have struck a deal with SmartComics, a company that summarizes a variety of books into comic book format.
SmartComics has already released a number of popular self-help books in the comic book format, including books like “How to Master The Art of Selling” by Tom Hopkins, “The Art of War” by Sun Tzu, “Think & Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill and others.
“This powerful book is both entertaining and educational, a perfect fit the growing young adult book market, graphic novels in general and last but not least eBook reading,” Franco Arda, CEO of SmarterComics told The Long Island Press.
SmarterComics, which is based in Palo Alto, California, is a relatively new company and concept.
Arda launched the company in April of 2011, as a solution "for people who are on the go who want to get smarter and have fun in the process.”
The original book “the 50th Law” was written in conjunction with Robert Green, who also authored the best—selling book “the 48 laws of power.”
"The 50th Law," which was released in September of 2009, is a manual for success in life, based on 50's business wisdom, along with historical examples and comparisons.
The SmartComic version of "The 50th Law" is due in stores in 2012.
