It’s a good time to be a fan of classic sci-fi novels. BOOM! Studios are releasing Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (which became Blade Runner) and now Bluewater are turning their attention to another dystopian future that was the basis for a much loved film. Press release below.
Bluewater Productions proudly announces an exciting new partnership with bestselling author William F. Nolan. The Washington based comic book company has contracted to do three titles with Nolan including the iconic “Logan’s Run”. Bluewater’s new franchise will also include another of his timeless novels “Seven For Space”, and an exclusive new title that Nolan will create specifically for the publisher.
William F. Nolan’s masterpiece of dystopian future once again races into the 23rd Century with an all-new comic book adaptation of “Logan’s Run”. Working in collaboration with William F. Nolan himself, “Logan’s Run: Lastday” re-imagines the classic trilogy and continues forward with all new adventures. The new ongoing series written by Hollywood screenwriter Paul J. Salamoff with art by Daniel Gete is a terrifying look at a world gone mad. When Lastday comes, will you lie down and die…or run!
“I’m excited to be partnered with Bluewater on this latest trek with Logan,” said William Nolan “It has the potential to be a successful new chapter in the Logan saga. Logan lives!”
“Having been a lifelong fan of “Logan’s Run”, it’s a dream come true to not only be asked to re-launch and re-imagine the trilogy of classic books as Graphic Novels, but to collaborate with William F. Nolan himself.” Said writer Paul J. Salamoff.
“Logan’s Run: Lastday” is scheduled for a 2009 release. “Seven For Space” which features Nolan’s futuristic private eye, Sam Space and the new untitled series are scheduled for 2010.
