Though beginning with more superhero fare (The 10th Muse, Atlas), Bluewater Productions has become known best for its bio-comics, featuring comic biographies of celebrities, politicians, historical figures, and even prominent authors.
This time Suzanne Collins, the author of The Hunger Games (Perhaps, you’ve heard of it?), is the feature of her very own bio-comic from Bluewater. The book follows the early life and career leading up to her work on the infinitely popular Hunger Games series. With the film version coming out in March, fans will want to get their hot little hands on what is certain to be an essential piece in any Hunger Lover’s collection. (Heaven knows I’m gonna have to swindle a copy for my fanatic friends, Barbra, Anne, and Jeffrey!)
Sporting a cover by one of my favorite artists, Joe Phillips, I thoroughly enjoyed learning a little more about the mind behind the Hunger. The art was fun and reminded me a little of the new Disney flick, Arietty. I urge you to hunt down a copy today. For more info on Fame: Suzanne Collins, head over to www.Bluewaterprod.com.
Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the ’70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael’s first published book, Homo-Hero’s Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the “Divas and Lassoes” panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his “underground” status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
