March 4th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Bluewater Productions is proud to announce the release of a comic book featuring the life of filmmaker and geek icon George Lucas. “Orbit: George Lucas: Rise of an Empire” is available in print and digital this week.

A creative force whose pioneering efforts in the area of sound production and special affects forever changed the way we view movies, George Lucas found fame in 1977 with the release of his magnum opus, “Star Wars.” In that moment, the master filmmaker shaped geek culture for generations.

The 26-page graphic novel was written by John Michael Helmer and Brian Smith and features art by Smith. Smith and Chris Fischer illustrated the comic book’s variant covers.

“Bluewater receives a lot of requests from fans and famous people to tell the stories of the famous and the infamous using this unique medium, and George Lucas has been at the top of that list for a long time,” says publisher Darren G. Davis. “With interest in his creative work swelling, now was the time to tell his amazing story.”

Bluewater has focused on other personalities such as Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, Carrie Fisher, Ray Harryhausen, and Stephen King. All are available on Amazon as well as Nook, Kindle, and ITunes. Bluewater’s biographies have hit the top ten books on Amazon as well drawn the attention of hundreds of news outlets, including New York Magazine, People Magazine, Forbes, MTV, CNN, and The Today Show

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
