Ted Kennedy comic coming to shelves

Bluewater to publish comic honoring Ted Kennedy

As part of its "Political Power" series, Bluewater Productions will publish a comic honoring Ted Kennedy in November.  The comic features writer Brent Sprecher, art by Alejandro Figueroa, and cover art by Patricio Carbajal.  The comic was planned prior to Senator Kennedy’s death Tuesday evening.  In the wake of his death, Bluewater issued the following statement:

"The country is a lesser place with the passing
of Senator Kennedy. Regardless of where you stand on the political
spectrum we could all learn a great deal if we followed his passion for
public service.

The timing of our announcement of a biography comic based on the
life of Ted Kennedy was in no way tied to the Senator’s declining
health and ultimate passing. When Bluewater planned out the first year
of biographies, Kennedy’s name was always at the top of the list. In
fact, this issue has been in production since March and was solicited
to retail shops through our national distributor in June. We will, of
course, pay final respects to this American icon by adding a page to
the completed issue to close the last chapter of his remarkable life.

We mourn his passing with the rest of the nation."
