Ray Harryhausen Presents...

Wrath Of The Titans!

 From Bluewater Comics!



Yesterday I blogged about receiving a package of comics for possible review...  from Bluewater Comics.  A couple of titles jumped right out at me, including this one, 'Ray Harryhausen Presents Wrath Of The Titans' #1, the 2nd Printing, which featured a new cover. 

Ray Harryhausen's film 'Clash Of The Titans' was his last film and was released in 1981.  Harryhausen has since licenced Bluewater Productions to create six comic book follow-ups to some of his most famous movies.  The first three were "Sinbad: Rogue Of Mars", "20 Million Miles More" and this one that I read... "Wrath Of The Titans".

Ray has achieved international fame since his early start in films back in the 1930's. His name on this project was the main reason I chose this comic to read second, after the 'Legend Of Isis' that I reviewed yesterday.

The writers, Darren G. Davis and Scott Davis did a good job on this story, keeping my interest and wanting me to come back for more.  Nadir Balan's artwork was fitting for this genre of story... only the last couple of pages was a little 'cartoony', not totally fitting the style of the earlier pages in my opinion. The colors by Joey Campos was in keeping with the pencilling and the time period for this story.

The 'extras' included in this comic book included four pages of original sketches by Ray Harryhausen. They were from the 'Sinbad' project that Ray had done earlier.  Also included were two pages from Nadir Balan's Sketchbook, which were for this 'Titans' comic book concept.

For those that are fans of Ray's 'Clash of the Titans' film, this is a good read. 'Wrath of the Titans' continues the story of Perseus, who was the child of Zeus, King of the Grecian gods.

Bluewater's mini-series starts the story arc with the pending birth of Perseus’ child, and the ramifications that it will cause.  Zeus decrees that the soon to be born child will become the ruler of mortals!  Hence the rest of the Pantheon will need to pay tribute!  Well, Hera the Queen of the gods fears that such a chosen child would eventually rule the rest of the heavens as well as earth.  Thus she works to destroy Perseus, his wife Andromeda, and their soon to be born child!

If this storyline grabs your attention, and you are a fan of Ray's earlier film 'Clash of the Titans', you might watch for the upcoming film remake! 

Set to be released March 26th 2010, this is the remake of Ray's 1981 film version of the myth of Perseus and his quest to battle both Medusa and the Kraken monster in order to save the Princess Andromeda!

Because this film stars Sam Worthington, who I think 'stole' the film 'Terminator: Salvation', I will definitely keep an eye out for this release date! (For my film review on Terminator: Salvation, Click here.  For Tina's review on same film, click here.)
