The Elvis Presley Experience Encore
"The Elvis Presley Experience" is the latest Bluewater Productions encore release of vintage Rock 'n' Roll Comics issues. The original 6 issues were published by Revolutionary Comics in the early 1990s, but Bluewater's offering combines all the issues into one 148-page trade publication.
According to original publisher and writer Jay Sanford, this take "is both scholarly and dramatic in its graphic recreation of the King's remarkable life story."
Sanford added that the Elvis series was among the best selling contemporary bio-graphic comics of the '90s and that the individual issues have been out of print for over a decade.
"The Elvis Presley Experience" features art by some well known names in the comic and genre industry including a future Marvel and DC star Aaron Sowd (Wolverine, Hawkman, Nightwing), and a story co-scripted by Babylon 5 TV vet Patrick McCray. Artist Azim (Logan's Run: Last Day) provides fresh cover art of
"Any series concerning rock and roll can't be complete without Elvis," remarked Bluewater president Darren Davis. "And this issue covers all the 'Elvis:' the na´ve Mississippi-born up-and-comer, the dangerous Elvis that made girls swoon in the fifties, the Hollywood Elvis of the '60s and Elvis as the Vegas staple in the '70s."
This is the fifth re-release of the defunct Revolutionary Comics properties by Bluewater. The others include graphic novel trade publications featuring The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Joan Jett and the Runaways and "Hard Rock Heroes."
