You’ve probably heard of Bluewater Productions, the second-rate comic book company that churns out unauthorized bios on the likes of Stephenie Meyer, William and Kate, Lady Gaga, and most recently, Justin Bieber. These stories are usually riddled with inexplicable graphics and bizarre plotting, yet they chug on along every few months with a new person to profile. For reference, check out our Art Crush gallery of their most head-scratching titles.
Yesterday, Bluewater got embroiled in a Twitter feud with comic writer Ron Marz, who has written for classic characters like the Green Lantern and Witchblade, but is also debuting a new creator-owned series, Shinku.
It appears that Marz laid down the gauntlet when he derided Bluewater for publishing a bio on Ayn Rand for their “Female Force” series, and the argument quickly turned into accusations on both sides about relevance and giving credit to writers.

Bluewater’s last tweet on the topic was advising Marz to contact their VP and work out the animosity. Then they tweeted about their upcoming Female Force: Angelina Jolie biography. Sigh.
