Golfer Tiger Woods is the latest celebrity and athlete to get his very own unauthorized biography in a comic book.

It's called "Fame: Tiger Woods" and goes on sale Wednesday. Publisher Blue Water Productions said that it will release the one-time issue in stores and online.

"Tiger Woods is, in most respects, the most famous golfer of all time," said Jason Schultz, Bluewater's executive vice president. "He may have had some recent troubles, but his life is one filled with very interesting tidbits."

The 32-page comic is part of the company's look at celebrity culture and how those in it rise from obscurity to notoriety and deal with life in the public eye.

The line of biography comics has profiled people including first lady Michelle Obama, singer Lady Gaga, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.

Woods, 35, was the former world No. 1, but recently tumbled to No. 17, his lowest spot in 14 years.
