BELLINGHAM, WASH. (October 8, 2008) – After the sold out news last week about Bluewater’s latest horror title; BARTHOLOMEW OF THE SCISSORS, Bluewater along with Comic Evolution will be running a 2nd print.   The 2nd printing will feature a brand new cover by artist Daniel Crosier. The book will be available for purchase only through Comic Evolution and their website ( This print run will be limited to 500 copies. 

“We over printed this book and we could not refill the reorders. This book is unique, nobody has ever seen a comic done with the wood burning medium,” said publisher Darren G. Davis. ” We wanted to tie in a retailer for a promotion for this printing. Comic Evolution is an amazing store and Chuck is a marketing machine, so it was the perfect fit.

Owner of Comic Evolution, Puyallup, Washington Chuck Messinger said, “We at Comic Evolution and the folks over at Bluewater Productions have developed a wonderful cross-promotional relationship in the last year. While promoting Bartholomew of the Scissors both by word of mouth and through the front page of our website we generated so much interested in our area that the book sold out immediately statewide; then sold out just days later nationwide. Being a huge fan of Chad and Daniel’s, we approached Bluewater about doing a second printing. Darren at Bluewater offered to make it a Comic Evolution exclusive which we could not pass up.

In our first year we have done some amazing things and developed so many relationships that we were nominated as one of the Best Comic Book Stores in Western Washington. The final result is not in but we are very confident that no matter where we place our customers have spread their satisfaction. What better way to celebrate this event than to have our very own variant cover to what has become a tremendously popular title with our customers.”

Artist Daniel Crosier added, “I’m really fortunate to be a part of a project that is so greatly supported Chuck. He is great advocate for the independent comic book scene and a patron of the arts. I really appreciate his enthusiasm for the Bartholomew series.”
