Comic book movies topped the box office this summer with films like Man of Steel and Iron Man 3, but the real heroes are being showcased in their own comic book, American Defenders: THE NAVY that is available Wednesday, August 21st.


For over two centuries, the seas and oceans of the world have been a safer place thanks to the United States Navy. American Defenders: The United States Navy traces how this global force for good began, helped America win not only win the Civil War, but World War I and World War II and continues to defend America’s best interests today and beyond.

Written by Don Smith, drawn by David Alabarcez, and cover by Nathan Girten, the special edition comic book is also on the NOOK, Kindle & iTunes. The American Defenders comic book series will also venture into the other branches of the U.S. Military later this fall.

Willie Jimenez, whom is presently serving in the NAVY, colored the book. “As a proud service member. I feel lucky to be a part of such a great project. Sharing what is on part of the navy’s long and rich history. In a medium that will hopefully reach a new audience. And let them learn what the Navy is about,” said Jimenez.

Bluewater has ventured into military and politics series Political Power. The graphic novel company is releasing Killing Geronimo: The Hunt For Bin Laden through Simon & Schuster earlier this year.  The 1st edition of the American Defenders, which is still available, showcased the United States Army.

The Political Power series was launched earlier in 2009 as a companion piece to the successful Female Force biography titles. The comic allows Bluewater to delve into the history of certain newsworthy politicians and political movements and understand how a person has achieved the level of office in the government. Previous subjects include Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, Colin Powell, Ted Kennedy, Richard Nixon & Hillary Clinton.

Bluewater Comics biography comic book series has been featured on CNN, Politico, Roll Call, The Today Show, Fox News and in People Magazine as well as thousands of other places.
