Lady Gaga comic bookWe've seen comic books about everyone from "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer to Presidential puppy Bo Obama hit the shelves this year from publisher Bluewater Productions, and now the company has revealed exclusively to MTV News where they'll turn their attention next.

Ellen Degeneres comic bookBluewater's "Female Force" comics have already put the spotlight on "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer, First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and "Harry Potter" author J.K. Rowling, among other notables, and now the much-publicized line of biography comics will turn its attention to popular comedian and talk show host Ellen Degeneres.

Hitting shelves in March 2010, "Female Force: Ellen Degeneres" promises to follow the entertainer "from her youth in Louisiana, through the endless smoke-filled comedy club circuit, to her breakthrough sitcom and finally as an Emmy-winning daytime talk show host."

The issue will be written by Sandra C. Ruckdeschel with art by Pedro Ponzo, and will feature many of the touchstone moments from Degeneres' career — including her recent addition to the "American Idol" judging panel. Bluewater Productions has provided Splash Page readers with an exclusive preview of "Female Force: Ellen Degeneres" (featuring uncolored, unlettered pages) as well as the official announcement of the title.

Taming of the Star RunnerNovelist S.E. Hinton is taking the leap from comic book outsider to comic book author, thanks to a newly established partnership with Bluewater Productions.

The story focuses on Travis, a city kid that has trouble acclimating to rural life after being sent to live on his uncle's ranch. Travis forges a bond with Casey, who runs a riding school at the ranch and tries to tame a dangerous horse called the Star Runner.
