Reality star Honey Boo Boo has been immortalized in cartoon form, in a garish new comic book titled 15 Minutes.

The colorful 23-page magazine charts seven-year-old Honey Boo Boo over the past 11 months, from her TV debut in Toddlers and Tiara’s to landing her very own reality show.

Explaining his inspiration, writer and illustrator Michael Troy said: “Andy Warhol’s quote about 15 minutes of fame is one of my favorites and as a pop culture junkie I jumped at the chance to put my spin on spoon fed America’s latest reality obsession.”

The front cover of the comic book, shows Honey Boo Boo, whose real name is Alana Thompson, dressed in a pink pageant dress that will be familiar to many of her fans.


Kris Jenner, Rosie O’Donnell and Anderson Cooper also have cameo roles in the short book.

In one of his strips Michael Troy asks readers “What is fame?”, responding with a quote from poet Lord Byron that “it is the thirst of youth”.

U.S. publishers Bluewater Productions, say the magazine examines the “the underbelly of fame”.

Its publisher Darren G. Davis explained that people shouldn’t take the magazine too seriously.

He said: “Clearly this one was meant to be fun for people and not to educate society.

“There are some of these biographies we do for strictly the entertainment value.”

Bluewater’s comics have previously featured stars such as One Direction, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber and Demi Lovato.

Its new series 15 Minutes will focus on personalities from the realms of reality TV, and it hints that Kim Kardashian, and characters from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Jersey Shore could possibly star in future issues.

It isn’t the first time Honey Boo Boo has been imagined in cartoon form.

Last month she starred in an episode of the animated sitcom South Park, along with her mother June Shannon.

The Honey Boo Boo comic is available in print for $3.99, while a digital version is priced at $1.99.
