Hey, hey, you, you, I could be your manga star

As the L.A. Times reports, today marks Avril Lavigne’s foray into the publishing world as the imaginary friend and conscience of an unhappy teenaged girl in a two-volume manga comic.

Published by Del Ray, Avril Lavigne’s Make 5 Wishes is written by Joshua Dysart – the punk princess served as creative consultant on the project. She is, of course, doing it for the fans.

Lavigne’s official website includes a link to “Avril Manga episodes,” which stream images from the comic accompanied by instrumental versions of songs from her new album. Fans can also post their own five wishes.

The first volume hit stores today, but Lavigne’s fans will have to wait until July for, like, the best damn conclusion.
