Blue Water Announces Howard Stern Comic Book


Press Release


He changed the face and tone of radio for a raw, edgier generation and then set his sites on TV, movies, books and satellite broadcasting. Howard Stern, the pioneering “shock jock” and self-proclaimed “king of all media” was selected as the first subject to be featured in Bluewater Productions' latest biography comic title “Orbit.”

Howard Stern News announced the upcoming April 2011 issue on the January 26th broadcast of the "Howard Stern Show" on Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

“Orbit: Howard Stern” lifts the veil on the man behind the microphone by examining his rise to fame, his assault on the status quo of broadcasting, his over-the-top, sometimes crude persona and his ground breaking move to satellite radio.

“He is the voice of a generation, the voice of dissent, the voice of the people. He says what we all want to say and does what we all want to do…and people love him for it,” said writer CW Cooke. “He's been in the public eye for years, but he's still an enigma.”

“Orbit,” according to Bluewater president Darren Davis is a natural extension of the biography comic division established by Bluewater's “Female Force,” “Fame,” and “Political Power.”

“We are launching 'Orbit' with a skew towards a more male demographic. When we weighed the possibilities of featuring people like Stern, LeBron James, Gary Gygax and JRR Tolkien into our existing titles, the tone and tenor didn't match. Their enduring popularity and contributions to popular culture are worthy of coverage, but they needed a different voice in which to present the material. 'Orbit' fits that bill”

The inaugural issue of “Orbit,” penned by Cooke and illustrated by Kent Hurlburt, retails for $3.99 and will be available through local comic book shops and various online venues such as Two alternative covers for the issue were designed by Micha
_ Szyksznian and Juan Mar Studios.

The suggested retail price (SRP) for the upcoming comic book is $3.99. To make sure you get your copy, contact your local comic book store to pre-order it. To find a comic book store near you go to The comic will also be on Amazon here:
