Yeah. I think Pat Broderick told on me when I said, "Fuck you, too, Kerry."

That's pretty hilarious stuff from the Facebook page. When someone feels they have to say upfront, "I'm not lying," it usually means they're at least not telling the whole truth.

The inking, coloring and lettering wasn't done months ago? See, that's what happens when you don't pay people. I hate to say I Told You So, but... no, actually I don't hate it at all.

Aaaaand the first issue finally showed up! Well, I say "first issue" but we know it'll probably be the only issue, at least for the forseeable future as no furhter issues have been solicited.

Anyway, it's not bad. Overall, the art is very modern looking, not as close to the feel of the old Warren mags as Dark Horse's new Creepy series (which has been consistently good and is on #4 now), so I'd rate this a couple of notches lower than that. If while waiting you forgot about poor Bela's new comic, that's understandable, but now it is finally available.

I was putting it up so you could apply. Seeing as how you don't have a job.

That was pretty painful to read. I guess Gregg Paulson is the art director, not the writer. It still doesn't inspire confidence, though.

His own art isn't bad, actually:

I think that for the market they exist in Bluewater is doing ok. It is a problem though that their business model is so about working for exposure more than it is about money. Because ultimate, nobody does things for free, or shouldn't. Someone, somewhere in the chain of product, is making money.

agreed about Paulsen's art, Peter.

Second issue solicited this month. Everybody got their copy reserved?

Holy crap. Check this out:

Apparently, Bluewater is now making their unauthorized biography comics "creator-owned." Meaning, they won't even have to pay people to work on them! Can this operation get any slimier?
