Okay, maybe they aren't exactly dressed as the X-Men. But Bluewater Productions has described this "variant cover" to their comic "FAME: One Direction" #2 as an "X-Men Homage," specifically riffing on the cover to "Giant-Size X-Men" #1: Read More...

Dubbed a "Batgirl homage" by publisher Bluewater Productions, there is a new cover to the comic book "Fame: Demi Lovato" that inexplicably features the teen star dressed as the famous superheroine. The "1st printing cover," illustrated by Jon Woodard, will be available exclusively on ITunes. For those fans of paper comics, a "2nd printing red cover" is offered on Comic Book Flea Market.

Perhaps expecting some sort of collective raised eyebrows reaction to the Lovato cover, Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis said in a press release:

"Downton Abbey" fans can read about the origins of their favorite show on February 20th, when Bluewater's "Lady Almina: The Real Downton Abbey" becomes available as a comic book.

Part of the publisher's "Female Force" series, the bio-comic focuses on the at-times scandalous life of Lady Almina -- the real-life inspiration for "Downton Abbey". Read More...

With such pop luminaries as Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, and Justin Bieber having their very own comic book (not to mention Jersey Shore's own "The Situation"), was there any doubt that Katy Perry would get one of her own as well?

"Fame: Katy Perry" traces the life of the blue-haired chanteuse from Christian Singer to pop superstar. Here's the deets from publisher Bluewater:

"Katy Perry is a natural choice of star in the “Fame” series. “Fame” comic books, consistently ranked at the top of Amazon’s best-selling charts, explore the lives of the rich and the famous. They delve into how actors, sports figures, and musicians rise to fame, handle newfound celebrity status, and keep a hold on the public eye. The “Fame” series has been featured in the Los Angeles Times, OK Magazine, and on CNN and the Today Show.

“Fame: Katy Perry” was written by Daily News columnist Howard Gensler and illustrated by Eduardo Bazen.

"This is a colorful and fun bio that every Katy Perry fan has to add to his or her collection," Bazen said, “I hope every Katy fan enjoys this book as much as we enjoyed working on it!"

Bluewater Productions announced today their partnership with ComicFleaMarket.com, who will be exclusively distributing a number of their comics -- including some of their biographies as well as titles like "Vincent Price Presents" and "Legend of Isis: Revenge of Horus." I chatted with Bluewater's president, Darren G. Davis, today about the decision, why he feels more indie publishers might turn to this route in the future, and the perils of distributing graphic novels to "big box" retail chains.

MTV Geek: What made Bluewater decide to switch some of their titles to ComicFleaMarket.com?

Darren Davis: This is a way to get our specialized and niche titles that haven't met Diamond's new sales benchmarks to the readers. We aren't trying to alienate comic book retailers; they can order the titles through the Comic Flea Market site.

Geek: How did Diamond's new benchmarks make it harder for Bluewater to distribute their comics through them?

DD: It's really difficult, because according to these benchmarks your comics have to make a certain amount of money, or they won't issue you a purchase order. I get it -- they're a bigger company. And if we have a book that only sold 500 copies, there's no reason why they should distribute it. But it just doesn't help me as a publisher. But I don't condemn them for it.

Geek: Would you say that Bluewater has some titles with loyal fans, but in a smaller, niche way?

DD: That's one of the reasons why we did the biography thing...it's not like we wanted to be this big biography company. But we noticed that sales of "10th Muse," "Legend of Isis," all these other books started going down, so we needed something to keep us alive. And the biography sales really keep us alive.

Can't wait to watch "Wrath of The Titans" when it hits theaters? Get your Greek mythology fix right now a full issue of Bluewater's own "Wrath of the Titans: Revenge of Medusa" #1...for free!

With the Gods humbled and the Kraken defeated, Perseus thought Argos was to enter a Golden Age of peace and prosperity. He was wrong. War drums are beating, the Olympians are again scheming and Perseus' mettle would be severely tested. But there is a new menace neither man nor Olympian could envision. This sequel contains more of what made 2008's Wrath of the Titans a a successful and entertaining rollercoaster ride: more action, more intrigue...and more monsters!
