As our press release about picking up part of Bluewater’s library hits the airwaves, several sites are buzzing about it! Comic Book Resources just posted on the topic as well…
Following its recent partnership with Benderspink for film-ready comics, Arcana has announced the acquisition of Bluewater Productions’ fiction library including titles “10th Muse,” “Legend of Isis,” “Judo Girl” and more. While Bluewater is better known for its “Female Force” and “Political Power” comics, Arcana’s acquisition includes 23 fiction titles releasing as collected graphic novels later this year.
“I have worked with Arcana in the past and am excited to team up with them again,” said Bluewater President Darren G. Davis via press release. “Teaming up with another independent comic book company, the foundation can only strengthen our brands.”
“Darren and Arcana did Valkyrie back in the day and it’s great to be working with him again,” added Arcana CEO Sean Patrick O’Reilly. “He is one of the most talented and prolific creators I’ve worked with, and everyone is very excited about these dozens of graphic novels added into our library,”
The Bluewater acquisition is the second major announcement from Arcana this month, following the publisher’s reveal of new label ArcanaBenderspink Comics, which will launch with 20 new titles intended to be developed for film and television.
