Lady Gaga comicIt's been a busy afternoon in the comics world, folks.

Earlier today, we brought you an exclusive preview of "Fame: Lady Gaga 2," the sequel to Bluewater Comics' recent, unauthorized biography of the popular musician. Just a few hours later, BleedingCool.com reported that the publisher was sent cease-and-desist orders from licensing attorney Kenneth Feinswog on behalf of his clients, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber (the subject of another bio-comic hitting shelves in October).

In light of the report, MTV News reached out to Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis, who confirmed receipt of the cease-and-desist orders and offered his official response to the report and paperwork. Read More...

Lady Gaga comicBack in May, we brought you an exclusive preview of "Fame: Lady Gaga," the comic book biography of MTV's 2009 Woman Of the Year.

Published by Bluewater Comics, the issue performed well enough to merit an encore performance, igniting controversy and creating quite a bit of buzz — just like the musician herself. This November, the publisher sends "Fame: Lady Gaga" back to the shelves with a new comic focusing more on her career instead of her personal life and impact on the cultural landscape.

Still, the comic promises to feature "all the hairstyles, stage blood, drama and costumes that make Lady Gaga impossible to ignore." Read More...

Things To ComeActor Walter Koenig is best known for playing Pavel Chekov, the navigator for the U.S.S. Enterprise in the original "Star Trek" television series and films, but over the course of a career that has spanned more than 50 years of acting, writing, and directing, he's managed to carve out a niche for himself in other areas, too — including the comics world.

The author of Malibu Comics' early-'90s series "Raver," Koenig returns to the comics world next year with "Things To Come," a four-issue miniseries he's scripting that will be published by Bluewater Productions. Set in a post-apocalyptic world in which vampires have become the dominant species, Koenig's tale promises to feature a very different take on the vampire stories that have become all the rage these days.

I spoke with Koenig today to find out more about the series, as well as Bluewater's plans to re-issue the original three-issue "Raver" series next year with a brand new story featuring the character. Read More...
