Female Force: Anne Rice, scheduled for a June release, follows the popular novelist from her formative years in her beloved New Orleans through the tragedies that influenced the creation of her most popular novels and her fervent rediscovery of Catholicism.
“Anne Rice's uniquely gothic, sensuous, and existential approach redefined the modern vampire mythology,” said issue author Scott Davis. “She advanced the vampire literary genre more than anyone since Bram Stoker.”
Davis added that Rice created a fictional universe where vampires, witches, and spirits walk amongst the living and often suffer from the same frailties and faults that affect mortals. It’s what transforms her work from pop fiction to serious literature.
The Rice issue is the fourth in Bluewater’s Female Force series highlighting authors of supernatural fiction. The other authors include Twilight’s Stephenie Meyer, Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling and Tru Blood writer Charlaine Harris.
The title is being drawn by Louie Demartinis provides the cover art. According to Davis, a very recognizable and iconic vampire will serve as the story’s narrator as he does in the Meyer and Harris issues.
“What I think fans will enjoy is the format of Rice being interviewed by a vampire as a nod to her seminal novel Interview with a Vampire, said Bluewater President Darren Davis. “This allows the Rice to provide added insight to her own story. Accordingly the vampire narrator adds his own spin as well.”
Female Force offers a broad examination of strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture.
Darren Davis notes other prominent and influential female authors, business executives, entertainers, journalists, politicians and activists are currently in development.
The monthly comic book series, launched earlier this year, has drawn considerable media attention, including features on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and “Live with Regis and Kelly.” It has also been featured in such periodicals as People Magazine, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today and thousands of blogs and other media outlets.
