It¹s a bird! It¹s a plane!
No, it's Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.
Once thought of as a kid's medium, comics have evolved into a creative, multi-billion dollar industry featuring many of our cultural touchstones and technological heroes. On April 18th, writer and publisher Darren G. Davis will discuss the release of Bluewater Productions' latest comic, Bill Gates: The co-founder of Microsoft. Darren, the head of Bluewater Productions, will also speak on recent changes in the comic book industry, including how the Nook and the Kindle are changing the way comic books are read, and how the entertainment industry's voracious use of comic heroes in television and movies has changed how they are written.
Whether you want to create a comic book or you are just curious about the process, this program is for you. Darren will unravel the mystery of how comic books are made, from character development to scripting to distribution. He will also show you how to use a comic book platform to educate as well as to entertain.
Comic titles created by Darren include 10th Muse, Legend of Isis, Orion the Hunter, Judo Girl, The Blackbeard Legacy, Victoria's Secret Service, and The Mis-Adventures of Adam West. Both Isis and Victoria's Secret Service were optioned for feature films, and 10th Muse was optioned for a television show. Darren is currently writing a new series around the classic Dorian Gray story.
Bluewater Productions publishes both fiction and non-fiction comic books, ranging from classic myths, science fiction and superheroes to technology giants to Hollywood legends such as William Shatner, Roger Corman, Ray Harryhausen and Vincent Price.
Darren is currently searching for a businesswoman to feature in a Bluewater Productions comic book series on female empowerment. Could the next comic book hero be you or someone you know?
