Blue Hair, Blue Water....

The story, as compiled by Rich Johnston at Bleeding Cool, goes something like this....

Brett Carreras is the owner of the Brett's Comic Pile comic book store.  He's a fan of Katy Perry.  Bluewater Comics decided to do a Katy Perry biography comic.  Brett (apparently forgetting aaaaaaaaaaall the bullshit Bluewater has pulled over the years) wanted a special cover for the comic to be sold at his booth at the San Diego Comic Con as he's such a fan.  Bluewater agreed.  Brett even flew in the cover artist of his special edition to sign copies for fans.

The comic was not at San Diego.

The comic with the special cover went on sale at the store.  If you open it up and look inside the front cover, this is what you'll see....

Remove the sticker, and you'll see this.

So, obviously, Bluewater came through, they were just late, right?  No.  Brett had an acquaintance hack into Bluewater's server and took the image files for the comic (COMPUTER SCIENCE III!).  He then had the comic printed himself with the special cover.  He also says Bluewater still has not paid him back (what a shock).

Darren Davis, who runs Bluewater, says there is no story here but is threatening legal action anyway.

Pass the popcorn, this looks like it's going to be an interesting train wreck.
