Child Star

Child Star

by Brian "Box" Brown

Paperback / softback Publication Date: 30/06/2020

  $33.75

Child star Owen Eugene had it all: a hit sitcom on prime time, a Saturday morning cartoon, and a memoir on the bestseller list. The secret to his success was his talent for improvisation...and his small size. But Hollywood ate him alive. On screen he made the whole world laugh, even as his life fell apart behind the scenes.

Inspired by real-life child stars, Box Brown created Owen Eugene, a composite character whose tragic life is an amalgam of 1980s pop culture. In this fictional documentary-style graphic novel, we see how growing up in the spotlight robs young actors of a true childhood.
