Bluewater To Publish Edward Snowden Comic Book


Fugitive whistleblower Edward Snowden will be the subject of the latest bio-comic from Bluewater Productions. Launching the publisher's "Beyond" line, the Snowden book will be written by Marvel Comics' Punisher writer Valerie D'Orazio and with art by Dan Lauer. Beyond: Edward Snowden will be released on May 21st and available in both print and digital formats. "It was a great experience working on this project, giving me the chance to stretch my skills both as a storyteller and as an artist," Lauter said. "Working with Bluewater on this comic was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to bring such a fascinating public figure's story to life," said D'Orazio. "Dan's art really added another dimension to this project and provided a look at a side of Edward Snowden the public has never really seen before. As a writer, I feel really lucky to have found a publisher who was willing to work with me so closely to turn my vision into a reality." The "Beyond" line, which will continue with Beyond: The Joker, Man Who Laughs in the fall, will apparently cover a wide range of topics, as described in the solicitation text for the Snowden book below:

Conspiracies. Espionage. UFOs. Hidden History. Secret Societies. The Paranormal. Beyond brings you stories about the secret and suppressed, the stories "They" don't want you to know! Take the Red Pill and join your fearless host Virgil Hall as he takes you far, far down the rabbit hole to Beyond. Edward Snowden has been called a whistleblower, a hero, a traitor, a criminal...but who is he really? In Beyond: Edward Snowden, Bluewater takes a look at the man behind the headlines, searching for what might have motivated him to commit one of the biggest leaks of classified information in U.S. history.
