Walter Koenig (Chekov on Star Trek), has signed a deal with Bluewater Productions to create a new mini-series. The series will take a look at a post-apocalyptic world where vampires are the dominant life form.
“It’s quite epic,” Darren G. Davis, Bluewater Publisher said. “Fans of the genre might think they have seen this premise before, but Koenig’s vision for this is unique, creative and impactful. I am very excited to be a part of this project.”
In addition to the four-issue release, tentatively scheduled to debut next spring, Bluewater will be repackaging Koenig’s first foray into comics; a three-issue series called Raver. The comic books, originally published in the early 1990’s at Malibu Comics, should hit comic book stores and online outlets in 2011 with new material. A new cover was done by Gregg Paulsen.
Raver follows the trials of a reality-bending hero whose psychotic episodes create a nightmare world with real villains and victims. And Norman Walters (Raver) moves from one twisted reality to the next trying to return to his original safe and stable existence.
“I’m very pleased to be on board with Bluewater. I anticipate an exciting professional relationship and the opportunity to tell stories with style and artistry,” Koenig said in the company press release.
