The comic book has been illustrated by Jeevan J. Kang, who is an Indian artist from Liquid Comics.
The collector's piece has been created to mark the 35th anniversary of Presley's death, which will take place on August 16.
Lee has released a statement saying, "What a thrill it is for me to be included in a book celebrating the life of Elvis Presley. I remember the time I first saw him on TV, when he burst upon the music scene like a blazing comet. I remember his indescribably rich voice, his incredible sense of rhythm, his magnificent range--from rock, to pop, to ballads and hymns. I remember the indescribably powerful impact he had on the youth of the nation--and the world. How lucky we were to have seen and heard him, because there was only one Elvis Presley, whose songs and whose memory will live forever."
An interactive digital and mobile app, called "Graphic Elvis: The Interactive Experience", is also available for $9.99, which includes bonus videos, animation and interactive features.
