'Hunger Games' Author Suzanne Collins Is Focus Of New Biographical Comic Book

What a day for "Hunger Games" news! First came the announcement that the debut teaser for our most hotly anticipated flick of 2012 will premiere at this Sunday's VMAs, and now we can happily report that author Suzanne Collins is the latest bold-faced name to get the Bluewater Comics treatment.

Fan favorite authors Stephenie Meyer and J.K. Rowling have received similar honors, but what makes Suzanne's comic book bio special to Hollywood Crush is that it was written by our good friend Sara Gundell over at The Hunger Games Examiner.

"It's fascinating to see how Collins' own life helped influence and shape the books that would one day make her famous the world over," Sara said in a press release. "With 'The Hunger Games' movie coming out in 2012, her following is only going to grow."

"Fame: Suzanne Collins" tells Suzanne's story from when she broke out as a writer on the Emmy-nominated show "Clarissa Explains It All" through when she debuted "The Hunger Games" in 2008. Her dystopian trilogy is now complete and is being adapted into a four-film series by Lionsgate.

The comic book goes on sale November 8 and can be pre-ordered at Amazon. The book is 40 pages long and is selling for $7.99.
