Sources associated with Ray Harryhausen and BlueWater Productions confirmed that they are no longer collaborating on comics based on Harryhausen’s works. The partnership ended in May.

Darren G. Davis, head of Bluewater Productions, said that BlueWater chose not to renew the contracts.

According to Harryhausen’s representative, they have no plans to move the properties to another publisher.

BlueWater began publishing comics based on the works of the filmmaker in 2006, including Jason and the Argonauts, Wrath of the Titans and Sinbad, Rogue of Mars.

Update: In response to the above, Ray Harryhausen’s representative contacted CBR again and said, “In fact, it was Ray Harryhausen, and Ray Harryhausen alone who decided, for reasons I cannot disclose, not to renew the contract. Saying otherwise is simply not true.”
