What defines a hero? Is it the vanquishing of monsters and madmen? Or is it something more? It has been five years since the legendary Perseus defeated the evil Gorgon Medusa, killed the Kraken and assumed the crown of Argos. Things seemed idyllic throughout the kingdom and the news of an heir put the citizens in a celebratory mood.Yet lurking in the shadows is the one being in Argos simmering with hate and discontent. And as gods and enemies alike conspire to destroy him, Perseus faces his greatest test ever...what does it mean to be a hero. Inspired by the classic Ray Harryhausen movie Clash of the Titans, is the heralded continuation of the story. Now presented for the first time in its entirety as a 96-page graphic novel, Wrath of the Titans delivers everything a proper Greek Drama demands: a hero, a cause, secret pacts, divine meddling and revenge, insurmountable challenges, dangerous creatures and non-stop adventure.
It's the classic Ray Harryhausen sci-fi epic re-imagined for a new generation. It's been 50 years since the strange being from Venus rampaged through Italy. So it has been 50 years of secrets, misinformation, and outright lying. Once the world was convinced that the Ymir was a giant hoax and the mission to Venus never happened, it was lulled back to sleep, ignorant of the truth. But no one counted on genetics. Years of secret testing and breakthroughs in many of the gray areas of science created unintended consequences that could bring the Earth to its knees... and only an 11-year-old child can save it. 20 Million Miles More, presented for the first time in its entirety as a 96-page graphic novel, is both a sweeping epic and the personal saga of the Calder family.
Lost Raven : ISBN: 978-0-9792751-0-4: AVAILABLE NOW
After learning that he has contracted the HIV virus, attorney Zak Raven leaves his practice behind to set forth on a mission of relaxation – until his peaceful trip goes wildly astray, leaving Zak shipwrecked on what he thinks is a deserted island with only the words in his own journal to keep him company. Unknown to Zak, four miles below the surface secretly hides a government experimentation center where scientists are playing God by trying to artificially evolve a human based species that can survive evacuation missions in deep space. Within 900 years, earth will be dealt a deathblow by a mountain-size asteroid. However, so far they have only achieved creating living abominations. Zak and these creatures are on a collision course, and he must rise to the challenge! Part of the proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Evergreen AIDS Foundation.
"It has always been part of the business plan to get into trade paperbacks. The 1st year of publishing was to get a library of titles so we can put them into trades," says Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis "the production value we are putting into them is going to be amazing. We will also offer a lot of extras in the trade paperbacks that were not available in the comics".
Bluewater will also produce original graphic novels as well as the trade paperbacks.
