Royal baby gets his own comic book

A new comic book celebrates the birth of William and Kate's firstborn, George Alexander Louis. You probably won't be seeing this one at the next Comic-Con, however.

The title of the comic riffs on The Sun, a British tabloid.

He's not even 2 weeks old yet, and he's already a star in the comics.

Bluewater Productions has issued a special edition in its "Royals: Kate and William" series titled "The Son" in celebration of the newest addition to the British royal family -- George Alexander Louis.

The 32-page comic book includes realistic illustrations of key moments in the life of George's parents -- the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- leading up to the historic July 22 birth.

We see Prince Charles and Diana as they leave the hospital with a then-newborn William, in addition to one of the more tragic moments in his life. In some of the comic's pages, a 16-year-old William can be seen grieving over the death of his mother in 1997.

"The Son" also includes important scenes from Kate's life, highlighting her burgeoning role as a fashion icon over the years.

Watch the video below to see actual images from the new comic book, which is now available on Amazon and (which we're guessing will not be making a showing at next year's Comic-Con).
