The Legend Of


A New On-Going Series From

 Bluewater Comics!



I received a package of comics for possible review...  from Bluewater Comics this week.  A couple of titles jumped right out at me, especially this one, 'The Legend of Isis' #1, which is the first of an on-going series.

Since I have blogged about the Isis TV Show here in the past, plus the 'new' DVD set for the show, as well as mentioning other Isis comics, I thought I would delve into this comic book first. 

There is definitely interest in 'Isis', no matter what version or concept you may find in print, TV or film format.  The readership in my archived blog posts on Isis attest to that!   (Click Here to see one sample post.)  

Reading this first issue of what stated on the front cover to be a "new on-going series", I would have thought I would be reading a beginning or introduction or maybe an origin to the character(s).  However a few pages into the storyline, I realized I wasn't.  It was like I was coming into a continued story that had already introduced the main characters...  

Since I had already started the story, I continued reading it till the final page.   The pencils by Ivan Barriga fit the story genre. Colors by Kirsty Swan also went well with the finished art.  The lettering by Wilson Ramos Jr was placed well within the panels.

I just felt that I had missed something in the beginning of the storyline, and thus went searching through the Bluewater Comics web site, and then my own usual search sources for more data on this title.

It turns out that this 'Isis' was originally published in the February 2002 one-shot issue by Image Comics.  Then Isis later appeared in 'The 10th Muse' #10 and 'The Odyssey' #1  both of which were published by Tidal Wave Studios and Avatar Press.

It was later in 2005 that this Isis would return in her own ongoing monthly series titled 'The Legend of Isis' at Alias Enterprises by creator Darren G. Davis and writer Ryan Scott Ottney.  

Now with creator Darren G. Davis being the Publisher of Bluewater Comics, the title has moved there!

OK, I wish I had known that prior to choosing this issue first to read.  Or had a brief intro on the inside front cover explaining what had gone on prior in this Isis' publishing history.

Other than that, I found this issue to be a good start on a new story arc.  Within the 22 pages printed here, the players have been shown and the stage is set for the next issue! 

I believe that fans of 'Isis' should take a look at this series as 'The Legend of Isis' itself has been optioned for a major motion picture by Paramount Studios and Grammnet Productions.  So if you enjoy this new story arc, you should go back and read the earlier published stories also...

For more info on the series and upcoming issues, please see the Bluewater Comics web site at:  http://www.Bluewaterprod.com

BTW, Bluewater Comics is also the publisher of the 'Female Force' comic book series featuring special issues on Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, Caroline Kennedy and more to follow!
