“With comic book shelves teeming with violence, sex and dark brooding heroes, these biographies are reading material that teens enjoy and parents can appreciate as they are fun, fact-filled and age appropriate,” said Bluewater president Darren Davis. “We understand who these celebrities are, what they represent, and tried to create an illustrated world that captures their story.”
According to Bluewater, many schools and libraries order and enjoy the biography comics as a reading supplement for reticent readers.
Davis credits comic books for helping him overcome a reading disability. “I was a terrible student. My parents couldn’t get me to read the back of a cereal box, much less my schoolbooks. But once I discovered comics I realized it was a gateway too much, much more. I look at our biography comics in a similar light. If theyhelp one person on the road to reading, the journey was well worth it.”
