BLUEWATER UNVEILS FICTION TITLES FOR 2011

Although considerable press and attention has been given to Bluewater Productions non-fiction biography titles, the Vancouver, WA based publisher announced a slate of new and continuing comic fiction titles scheduled for release during the first quarter of 2011.

The lineup includes several new faces as well as the continuation of some familiar and popular titles including collaborations with genre icons Adam West, and MST3K vet Mary Jo Pehl.

"The titles run the gamut from comedy, to horror, to epics, to supernatural thrillers, to traditional cape and tights fare," commented Bluewater president Darren Davis. "There is definitely something for everyone."

Titles scheduled for release during the first few months of the upcoming year include "The Mis-Adventures of Adam West," "Wrath of the Titans: Revenge of Medusa," "Walter Koenig's Things to Come," "Styx and Stone," "Paparazzi," and Distortions Unlimited."

Additionally, 2011 will see the reemergence of fan favorites like the 10th Muse (in a special crossover with Legend of Isis), Judo Girl, Victoria's Secret Service (a prequel called "Rain"), Atlas (in a kid-friendly adventure) and Gearz.

"Bluewater publishes about seven titles per month and most of the books are fiction titles," Davis said. "Next year is shaping up to be a very creative year for us."

Davis added, "Beyond the first quarter we've already lined up several exciting projects including "Walter Koenig's Things to Come," and a new collaborative project with William Shatner. And of course, 2011 is the centennial of Vincent Price's birth, so you can be sure our "Vincent Price Presents" series will have some spine-tingling specials in store."

The following are detailed descriptions of the upcoming titles:
