Howard Stern gets a comic book

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,” Bluewater Productions said. The company plans other biography comics under the “Orbit” title.

Piers Morgan Ratings

Piers Morgan’s new CNN talk show lost a significant chunk of viewers his second night on the air, but the Brit beat Fox News in the network’s key demographic.

With Howard Stern as his guest, Piers Morgan Tonight delivered 1.3 million viewers Tuesday night — down 38 percent from his Monday premiere, which featured Oprah Winfrey.

Among adults 25-54, however, Morgan climbed 6 percent to 551,000 viewers and was able to edge out Fox News’ Hannity (2.2 million viewers, 506,000 in the demo) in the hour.
