Bluewater, Roger Corman Team for Comic Book Imprint


Back to the beach for Humanoids

If this is the year for Vincent Price’s return (details), then 2009, goes to Roger Corman.

Indie comic book publisher Bluewater Productions and Roger Corman are teaming up to introduce a new generation of genre lovers to some of Corman’s popular work. Under the Roger Corman Presents banner, properties such as Death Stalker, The Barbarian Queen, Black Scorpion and Humanoids From The Deep will be re-interpreted and re-adapted in print.

Comic books have given me so much over the years that it’s time I gave something back to the medium,” says Corman.

As Bluewater now is working with both Corman and the Vincent Price estate, it is certain that several of the horror classics based on the Edgar Allen Poe stories will also be produced in comic form in the near future.

And just like DVDs that put extras and Easter eggs into their presentations, each Bluewater-Corman book with be full of extras like interviews, behind the scene pictures and reminiscing about the titles from Corman himself.

Some of the creative team for the franchise will include writers and artists Paul Salamoff, Shon Bury, Neal Bailey, Ed Brisson & Daniel Cuchacovich and television writer/producer Craig J. Nevius who co-created Black Scorpion with Corman and is overseeing the Bluewater/Corman collaboration.
