Fame: Jennifer Lawrence cover by Ben EargleFame: Jennifer Lawrence
Written by Michael Troy
Illustrated by Ben Eargle
Bluewater Comics
Release Date: January 15, 2014
Cover Price: $3.99

Jennifer Lawrence is on fire right now. The star of American Hustle and of course, Katniss Everdeen herself from The Hunger Games, Lawrence has that special quality that virtually guarantees superstardom. If Bluewater’s Fame: Jennifer Lawrence comic were capable in any way of impacting her career, she’d be in serious trouble. It is horrible.

Not a single one of the inconsistent drawings of Lawrence looks even remotely like her. You’d think with all the varying depictions of her facial features, artist Ben Eargle might’ve gotten at least one correct. Who told him she had a chiseled, square jaw? Has he seen any of her movies? Looked at a picture of her? The “baby picture” drawing of Lawrence makes her look like some alien creature. Jaw-dropping, hilariously bad. I showed it to my wife and we both had a good laugh.

Vincent Price: Tales from the Darkness #4Vincent Price: Tales from the Darkness #4
Written by CW Cooke
Illustrated by Ezequiel Rosingana
Colored by Doris Lotewing
Lettered by David Hopkins
Cover by Graham Hill
Bluewater Comics
Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $3.99

Punishment for the idle observers of war is the hard-hitting theme of Vincent Price: Tales from the Darkness #4, the latest installment in the series from Bluewater Comics.

Current events in horror comics are sure to push buttons with readers because of our intimate connection to the reality of these horrors thanks to the media exposure we’re subjected to each day. Plausibility is frightening. That’s where writer CW Cooke collects the strength for this story, but that’s also sadly where it ends.

Orbit: John LennonOrbit: John Lennon
Written by Marc Shapiro
Art by Luciano Kars
Letters by Jaymes Reed
Graphics and Editing by Darren G. Davis
Bluewater Productions
Release date: March 28, 2012
Kindle Edition

John Lennon, musician, legend, influence that stretches far and wide, messiah, pariah, master of wit, innovator, trailblazer… comic book character?

That’s exactly what Bluewater Productions tries to do with these adjectives and descriptions to bring to comic book life of one of the most enigmatic and forcefully creative individuals of the 20th Century (or arguably any century for that matter) with Orbit: John Lennon.

Bluewater, known for their prior work immortalizing many famous figures in its colored etchings within squares, now tackles the larger than life figure in Lennon. But, they unfortunately make the same clumsy errors here that deterred the other biographical comic book treatments that also attempted to mythologize public and famous figures from all stripes.

Cover by Joe Phillips

The story of Gabrielle Giffords is one of triumph over adversity. On January 8, 2011, the Arizona Representative was shot in the head while giving a public speech in her home state. Though she survived the attack, Giffords faced many hurdles in her recovery and continues to face them even now.

Female Force: Gabrielle Giffords is a new 32-page full-color biographical comic book from Bluewater Productions that details the Congresswomen’s life from her many academic achievements, to her time as a business woman and state politician, and later as a member of Congress. We learn a little about her childhood and also about her relationship with husband, NASA astronaut Mark Kelly. Of course, great attention is given to the shooting and Giffords’s subsequent efforts to recover from her extensive injuries.

Release date: January 3, 2012
Price: $3.99, $3.59 (print); $1.99 (ebook)

If you believe in life after love, then here’s something new for you: Female Force: Cher, a new one-shot comic book from Bluewater Comics.

First of all, when I opened my review copy I was like “What’s Cher Force One?” not realizing that 1) that this is not, in fact, the actual name of this comic book; 2) this is not a story about superhero Cher, so she does not have any powers – no, not even the power to turn back time, and 3) this is actually a biographical story ABOUT Cher.

Ok, so I’ve lost about 99% of you with those revelations, so for the remaining one percent (shout-out to my Cher-shirt-wearing mother-in-law, thanks for staying), here’s what you can expect from Female Force: Cher.
