The comic book movie the "Avengers" topped the box office this weekend, but the real heroes are being showcased in their own comic book, "American Defenders: THE U.S. ARMY" which is now available today in stores nationwide.

From the cold of Valley Forge in the American Revolution, to the burning temperatures of the deserts of the Middle East, the Army of the United States of America has defended freedom, pushed back tyranny and helped make the world a safer place. Now, Bluewater Comics is shining their bio-comic spotlight on these brave men and women!

Written by Don Smith and drawn by Jeff Wester, the special edition comic book is also on the NOOK, Kindle & IPad. The "American Defenders" comic book series will also venture into the other branches of the U.S. Military later this fall.

These biography titlestypically sell out very quickly so fans are encouraged to order their copy through their local comic book shop, or order them through Amazon, Barnes & Noble or any other bookstore.

Bluewater has ventured into military and politics series Political Power. The graphic novel company is releasing "Killing Geronimo: The Hunt For Bin Laden" through Simon & Schuster this fall. Bluewater just signed a deal with "Solider of Fortune Magazine" to develop a special ops fiction comic book series out this June.

The "Political Power" series was launched earlier in 2009 as a companion piece to the successful Female Force" biography titles. The comic allows Bluewater to delve into the history of certain newsworthy politicians and political movements and understand how a person has achieved the level of office in the government.Previous subjects include Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, Ted Kennedy, Richard Nixon & Hillary Clinton.
