TidalWave Productions (previously known as Bluewater Productions, StormFront Media/Publishing & Storm Entertainment) is an independent production studio of comic books and graphic novels. Based in Portland, Oregon, United States, Bluewater publishes biographical comics, adaptations from films, and original titles with self-created characters. [1] [2]



The first iteration of Davis's company started in 2001 as a production studio at Image Comics, where its founder Darren G. Davis developed the company's signature series 10th Muse and The Legend of Isis . This iteration came to an end with the company declared bankrupt in 2003. [3]

Davis's revived company, then known as Bluewater Productions, became a publisher in May 2007 with the signature series Ray Harryhausen Presents, [4] which was produced in conjunction with filmmaker Ray Harryhausen until 2009. [5] Other signature series, including Vincent Price Presents, produced in conjunction with the daughter of the actor Vincent Price, [6] and William Shatner Presents, with actor William Shatner, followed.

The company signed a deal, in 2009, to republish the Rock 'N' Roll Comics series from defunct publisher Revolutionary Comics, the deal was ended in 2013 after seven volumes with an eighth left un-published. [7]

A collaboration with The Graphic Classroom was announced in August 2011, which resulted in the creation of free lesson plans to tie-in with the company's series of biographical comics. [8]

Bluewater became a pioneer in digital-first publishing in January 2012, with the release of its Gabby Giffords and Mitt Romney bio-comics on the Nook and Kindle prior to their print versions. [9]

Bluewater ended its distribution deal with Diamond Comic Distributors in 2012 after several of their titles were canceled for not meeting the sales benchmarks, distribution was taken over by Comic Flea Market, which operates a print-on-demand service. [10] [11] Following this Arcana Studio bought up the majority of the company's non-biographical original content, including 10th Muse and Legend of Isis. [12]

A name change to StormFront Media/Publishing in 2015 followed a television production deal for their property Insane Jane which required the company to differentiate itself from another production company of the same name. [13] A second name change to Storm Entertainment later that year was undertaken in order to end any confusion of the company with the controversial Stormfront message forum. [14] This rebranding coincided with a change to a digital-centric business plan.

The company regained its original name TidalWave Productions in 2016 and has been publishing through Ingram and various other distributors. They continue to produce titles such as Female Force, Stormy Daniels: Space Force, Force of the Trojans, Soldier of Fortune, Juliet, Dorian Gray, Political Power among other titles. They are represented by The Bohemia Group in Los Angeles.

The artwork by Noeth in the first two chapters is complimented by Thomas as "highly illustrated, bright, and bold," while dismissed by Ferguson as "very uneven," which he puts down to tight deadlines. The artwork by Tennant in the final two chapters is described by Thomas as "heavy-textured, almost photo-realistic panels," while Ferguson compliments the "insane" action shots despite the lazy shortcuts taken.

Biographical comic books

In 2009, the company ventured into biographical comics with Female Force, a series celebrating influential women in society and popular culture. In the subsequent years, Bluewater Productions has filled the growing biography comics niche with other titles profiling popular figures in politics (Political Power), entertainment (Fame), literature, and others. Less than half of Bluewater Productions publications are biography. [51] Bluewater Productions attempts to utilize the "power of celebrity" to broaden comics distribution. "We tried something different to get new readers into to comic book stores and it is working... We get a lot of flak from the true comic book fans thinking we are ruining the industry, but we are doing our part to help it." Fame: Justin Bieber was initially distributed exclusively at Wal-Mart stores. [52]

Although many of the biography comics are unauthorized, the company does reach out to most of its subjects to participate. In 2010, the publication of Female Force: Charlaine Harris marked the first authorized Female Force biography. Harris granted interviews to writer Kim Sherman. [53] When requested, Bluewater has donated profits made off the biography comics to charities of the subject's choice, as was the case with FAME: Ellen DeGeneres . [54] Criticism surrounds the potentially exploitative nature of biography comics. Responses from Bluewater Productions highlight positive aspects of potentially expanding comics readership. Furthermore, the company defends its right to provide timely coverage that its audience demands. According to Davis, speaking about the upcoming Infamous: Charlie Sheen comic, "there are those who are going to complain that we are exploiting Sheen. But honestly, this is no different than People magazine devoting most of an issue to the story or TMZ or Slate or the general media's constant coverage of breaking developments. If Sheen contacted us right now and wanted us to donate some of the potential profits to a charity of his choosing, we would happily do so." [55]

In addition to Female Force, the company publishes the biography comics lines Political Power (eg: Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Ophra Winfrey...), Fame (eg : 50 cent, Adele, Beyonce, Black Eyed Peas...), about famous authors (eg : Anne Rice, JK Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, Stephenie Meyer...) [56] and others.

In September 2009, Bluewater announced it would be reprinting defunct publisher Revolutionary Comics' line of music comics (including their flagship title Rock 'N' Roll Comics ) in 10 monthly volumes, averaging 250 pages each. [57] The first collections were The Beatles Experience and Hard Rock Heroes, released in early 2010.

Many of Revolutionary's original creators participated in updating and modernizing the contents of the musical comic bios (which had been originally produced in the years 1989–1993). The reprints and updates were supervised by long-time Rock 'N' Roll Comics writer/editor Jay Allen Sanford. Ultimately, Bluewater released seven titles from 2010–2012: [58]

Two other projected volumes, Rock 'N' Roll Cartoon History: The Sixties; and Rock 'N' Roll Cartoon History: The Seventies, remain unpublished. [58]
