Editorial Reviews

Review

"They manage to keep my attention for the entirety. And you know how happy educators like me get when the kids read these days instead of simply wasting their time with video games, charm bracelets, and fake nails - Vanity Fair Magazine

"Bluewater Productions creates intelligent, well-examined biographies of authors and stars as well as political and historic figures. If readers are looking for factual insights, relevant information, and terrific art, these books are a great source." Anne Elizabeth Columnist RT Book Reviews Mag

"This is probably one of the best comics we have produced" Not only the writing is done well, but also the painted art is truly one of the best I have seen", said Bluewater Productions publisher.

About the Author

Writer Tara Broeckel Ooten said that while researching the comic she became convinced that Bieber has what it takes to craft a long musical career.

The book I ordered was a comic book on Justin Beber. It was on back order and I had to wait about five weeks. What I got when I opened the package was a comic book on the Glee Cast. Never returned it. wasn't worth the money in postage.

Comic biographies are tricky business, plagued with art complexity. When we read fictional stories, we create iconography based upon how the characters are described or drawn. Not so in a biography of a famous person because the reader is already familiar with what the person looks like. The Fame series is a great way for people to see their favorite celebrities in a different world...the comic book world!

Realistic art requires every single image of the person be spot-on accurate and recognizable. There is no room for wonky faces or goofy facial elements and no tolerance for strange positions or awkward faces or hands. They must look like themselves in each panel. Realism must be realistic. The other choice is iconic or cartoony art, whereas the image is not a replication of the person but merely an iconic representation. This approach allows for more artistic license.

Bluewater Productions has produced several nonfiction comics, all of which have used realism with differening success.

As Scott McCloud puts it in UNDERSTANDING COMICS (pg. 30) "by stripping down an image to its essential `meaning,' an artist can amplify that meaning in a way that realistic art can't."

I loved it! Pick up the Fame series...a true fun ride. The art in the Glee book is just amazing as well as the storytelling!

I'm almost always looking for something unique to add to my Glee collection, and this find was completely by accident. Let me start by saying it's a delight to see our favorite Glee characters done for comic art. The artists are SPECTACULAR, doing true justice to the people we see and love on the show every week. It's not really a comic or graphic novel, so much as it is cast bio and information (Much of it unknown!), with drawings and artwork from some of the best artists in the business. It's a rather small book, but it wasn't overly priced, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved seeing the Glee 'kids' in comic format (With some GORGEOUS first rate work.), and I also learned a lot of new info that I didn't know about our favorite characters. The comic focuses on Ryan Murphy, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Jane Lynch, Amber Riley, and Chris Colfer, with some artwork of the other cast members. Supposedly there is a second one coming soon, and I certainly hope so. Honestly, if you're a fan of the cast or a die hard gleek, give this a try. I know you won't be disappointed.
Thanks so much for your time.
Sincerely, R.A. McDowell
