Editorial Reviews

Review

"It did 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

"After the first Fame: Glee bio sold out, we knew we had to do another," said Davis. "I have been impressed with Tara's writing and V. Ken's art and I think both make an amazing creative team and the television show 'Glee' is about acceptance and having fun and both of them captured the spirit.

By Grayson on May 18, 2012
Format: Paperback
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!
