GSG Artist Ryan Howe illustrates BlueWater’s Female Force

Thursday, March 12th, 2009

GUN STREET GIRL artist and Wicker Man Studios Art Director RYAN HOWE has been doing three of the four FEMALE FORCE comics from BlueWater Productions; specifically, the upcoming one on Caroline Kennedy, and the two of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, each of which are both in stores now and have already gone to a second printing.

BlueWater’s site:

“On the heels of last weeks [sic] announcement about the FEMALE FORCE: SARAH PALIN comic selling out, Bluewater Productions is proud to announce that the Hillary Clinton issue has also now sold out and will be going back for a second printing.

“We are excited to be going to a 2nd printing on the Hillary Clinton title,” said Bluewater Productions publisher Darren G. Davis. “We thought when we overprinted these issues there would be enough for the demand. We had no clue how well these books would be received in the marketplace”.  Comic book stores that have ordered this title will have them on the release date of March 11.

The 2nd printing of the comic will feature the same painted cover of Hillary Clinton by Vinnie Tartamella. It will be available now to bookstores with a new ISBN: 978-1-4276-3886-1.”


America’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blogged about this here:

There is a page on Amazon for the Sarah Palin comic, although it doesn’t list as having released yet, since retailers are usually allowed a jump on these things before Amazon:

Here (starting at the 1 min 32 sec mark), The Rachel Maddow Show’s Kent Jones seeks, with some success, to impress the graphic-novel-loving Rachel Maddow with the comics, although he incorrectly identifies the publisher as being the same as published the Obama/McCain comics previously…
Also, a trade collection is coming out in July.

Well, first of all, I finished posting my con report… this is where the main course is:


Let’s see… over at MangaLife, Barb and I wrote some stuff:


I also bought some issues of Naruto because the guy from Viz who sends me review copies didn’t. Then the guy at Viz who sends me review copies sent them to me. So the moral of this story is: It is never a mistake to buy Naruto, no matter what happens.


I edited these things you can buy:


Okay that is all for now… very soon Ryan Howe will tell me it is time to report awesome new things. He thinks maybe Wednesday, so if you know him, and awesome new things do not happen yet Wednesday, email him and tell him he was wrong
