This June, Bluewater Comics will be adding another title to their FEMALE FORCE books, the line that focuses on real-world women who've displayed strength and influence across their respective fields. The latest will revolve around a name many Fango fans will be familiar with, VAMPIRE CHRONICLES author Anne Rice.
After writing countless fictional lives, Bluewater will focus on Rice's true story of her formative years in her beloved New Orleans through the tragedies that influenced the creation of her most popular novels and her fervent rediscovery of Catholicism."
Written by Scott Davis and drawn by Louie Demartinis, Davis said, "Anne Rice's uniquely gothic, sensuous, and existential approach redefined the modern vampire mythology. She advanced the vampire literary genre more than anyone since Bram Stoker. Rice created a fictional universe where vampires, witches, and spirits walk amongst the living and often suffer from the same frailties and faults that affect mortals. It’s what transforms her work from pop fiction to serious literature."
The comic will also feature an iconic vampire narrating its tale, just as their issues on DEAD AFTER DARK author Charlaine Harris and TWILIGHT writer Stephenie Meyer did.
Bluewater Productions President, Darren Davis says, "What I think fans will enjoy is the format of Rice being interviewed by a vampire as a nod to her seminal novel INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE. This allows Rice to provide added insight to her own story. Accordingly the vampire narrator adds his own spin as well."
The 22 page title issue retail for $3.99. Check back with Fango for more on this title as it comes in.
