Bluewater Is Doing A Paula Deen Comic, Somehow Still Exists
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from our friends (well, frenemies) over at Bluewater Comics — so long, in fact, that I was starting to think that we were done with them entirely. Sadly, much like herpes, getting rid of Bluewater isn’t that easy. This week, they’re back in the news with another comic cashing in on current events. This time, it’s a biography of celebrity chef / racist Paula Deen.
In the interest of being fair — something I’m always loath to do — I will say that the cover is pretty great, mostly for being bizarre and horrifying. Of all the directions they could’ve gone with this, I think showing what appears to be Deen’s severed head, unblinking eyes focused on the reader, plopped into a tub of butter is certainly unexpected.
It’s a step above their usual traced photo reference, anyway.
Sadly, I’m pretty sure this will be the last good thing about it. Unless, of course, they go back to having Deen’s life story narrated by Dracula.
