CLASSIC BLUEWATER COMIC SERIES GET A SPINE
BELLINGHAM, WASH. (October 17 , 2008) -- The two sold out comic series Victoria’ s Secret Service and Judo Girl will finally be put into trade format in December 2008.
Both trade paperbacks will feature the 1st story archs of the series originally published at ALIAS. Both series are written by Terrance Griep and pencils by Nadir Balan.
Judo Girl is described as:
Judo Girl is a woman on a mission: after having spent 40-years in suspended animation, she searches for her missing brother. And Captain Steel hasn't exactly spent the last four decades collecting rust either. Indeed, his awful plans are about to solidify on a worldwide scale. On the flip side is a retro story set during the era of go-go boots and slot cars revealing the secret origin of the original Steel Ray! Martial art meets pop art; both the modern story and the retro story tie in together for one fantastic adventure!
"The first thing that captivated me about JUDO GIRL was the style in which it was written. I'm a sucker for action-comedy with wise cracking heroes, and when you throw in some drama and plot twists the characters really start coming to life," says artist, Nadir Balan. "With a 60s retro and modern day story in each book you really get to see different sides of Judo Girl's character and how she keeps her cool under extreme challenges. When the book you're penciling has all this PLUS hot chicks, ninjas, robots and cyborgs thrown together, it's hard not to get worked up about each page!"
VSS is described as:
They say it takes a thief to catch a thief, and the glamorous field agents of VSS put this tenant to the test when they allow their newest member, the American sneak-thief Scarlet, to take point on her first full mission: hoping to derail on imminent coronation, an unknown scoundrel has stolen the Crown Jewels from the Tower of London. It's up to Lark, Raven, Brooke, and Scarlet to steal back these vibrant symbols of the monarchy they have be paid to protect. But which of her teammates is spying on Scarlet? And why? It's thief versus thief and spy versus spy in this high-impact thriller.
Wizard Magazine listed VSS as one of the books to look out for.
Both books are strong sellers for Bluewater. In 2009 they are bringing Judo Girl back for a third round and VSS’s main character Scarlet is getting a spin-off series in RAIN. VSS has been option as a major motion picture.
