Many Americans can’t seem to get enough of the royal wedding. That’s good news for Darren Davis, president of Bluewater Productions, an independent producer of comic books with a celebrity bent.
This week his Vancouver, Washington firm is releasing both a comic book and graphic novel of the royal romance of Britain’s Prince William and bride Kate Middleton.
“In a weird way, I wanted to create my own memorabilia,” said Davis, 42, whose 10-year-old company has produced biographies of famous personalities ranging from Ellen DeGeneres to Hillary Clinton and Glen Beck. “I watched Princess Diana get married.”
Bluewater’s 32-page comic will retail for $3.99, while the longer, 40-page graphic novel will sell for $7.99. They will be sold in comic-book stores throughout the U.S., as well as mainstream book retailers like Barnes & Noble – even such unlikely outlets as Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts.
