FOOL: New Line Of Orson Scott Card Comics From Bluewater

orsonControversial science fiction writer Orson Scott Card, who caused quite a fuss earlier this year with a solicited-but-brushed-under-the-carpet Superman story has found a new outlet for a line of science fiction/superhero comic books to be published later this year, alongside the release of the Ender’s Game film.

I understand that in the light of the recent protests and reaction from DC Comics to the writer, most other known comic book publishers were wary of taking on a line, even with big name artists like Mike S Miller and Earthworm Jim creator Doug Ten Napel.

But equally it seems comic book publisher Bluewater has had difficulty attracting big name creators to its stable, with publisher Darren G Davis dealing with his own controversies over creators and contracts.

It seems like a marriage made in heaven between them both. However, given the exponential controversies such a team-up could bring, I understand that both parties have agreed to be bound by a “controversy blind trust”.

As a result, Darren Davis has agreed not to be aware of Card’s statements regarding gays, gay marriage and his board membership of the NOM. And Card has agreed to remain blissfully unaware that Darren has been in a loving relationship with another man for many years.

I understand that DC’s Dan DiDio entered into a similar blind trust with Card, but it eventually slipped somewhat.

Titles will include The Family, a Fantastic-Four-alike superhero team but with three Invisible Women-type characters and The Incredible NOM featuring a minister who becomes an angry behemoth when asked to perform certain ceremonies.
