Press release


Bluewater Productions will continue its successful partnership with actor William Shatner when it releases its new four-issue miniseries Quest for Tomorrow this September.

This science fiction adventure series follows Bluewater’s highly successful TekWar Chronicles: Plague of Ghosts, a four-issue series that brought Shatner’s pouplar TekWar novels to the pages of comic books for the first time.

The new series, written by David McIntee and drawn by Joey Mason, follows the adventures of Jim Endicott. When Endicott celebrates his 16th birthday, he finds himself hurled into a series of new worlds. Along the way, he becomes the hunted as he races for his life across a seemingly endless span of worlds.

Endicott soon discovers that the people who’ve populated his life so far aren’t quite who they seem. Then again, Endicott also learns that the same holds true for him.

Shatner guided the editorial and art processes on this series, just as he did with TekWar Chronicles: Plague of Ghosts.

“I’ve always been fascinated by comic books and the way they’ve been evolving over the years,” Shatner said. “To me, comic books are like heightened movies mixed with a little radio. QUEST FOR TOMORROW joins the highly successful TEK WAR series as my next venture in comic books. It’s exciting, timely and entertaining. I hope you enjoy it.”

The first issue of Quest for Tomorrow will be available in comic book shops and online at and other retailers in late September. The cover price for this 32-page issue is $3.99.

Bluewater Productions has gained fame for its biography comics of politicians, world leaders and celebrities. However, Darren Davis, founder and president of the independent comics company, says that he is especially proud of his company’s line of fiction comics. Bluewater publishes horror, science fiction, superhero and young adult comics of all styles.

“Our partnership with Mr. Shatner has been extremely successful so far, and I’m looking forward to developing new titles with him,” Davis said. “Who wouldn’t enjoy working with a true icon of television?”

Bill Shatner, the TRUE King of all Media!!!

Go Bill!

Hope it’s better than Tek Wars.

Shatner and Trek have a lot in common…they will produce any ancillary crap for a couple of $. Sorry Shat, I like you as Kirk…and that is all I like you for.

i real like tek war i rememer reading the books in the later 80 and ealy 90 and reading the original comic which is sill have however i perfer the newer one as the colour in the oringinal one are to bright and not enought shade im looking forward to quest for tomorrow

Shatner would be the king of all media if he in fact ACTUALLY wrote any of the books his name appeared on.

The rendering of him on one of the covers is most unflattering. The man doesn’t look THAT bad. Actually, for 80-ish, he looks pretty freakin’ good.

Why is Benny from L.A. Law on the cover? And some weird fetish version of Rick Springfield?

Boston Legal – the comic.

Is it just me or does the press release not mention the fact that Quest for Tomorrow was originally a series of novels written or co-written by Shatner?

Barbary Coast: The Comic. I… can’t… wait.

Basically Jim Endicott was supposed to be the young adventures of Kirk, according to an old interview with Shatner from cinescape magazine. But he could not sell the Star Trek book people on the idea. Which is funny considering all those years later he wrote that academy novel, which sequels were apparently canceled because they don’t want competing young kirk stories with the JJ movies.

@8 LOL!

It will be nice to read, but Bluewater has been taking their sweet time just getting out the TekWar comics. Also, Man O’ War was supposed to be starting in February but I am still to receive an issue!

TJ Hooker: The Comic. Bring it on!

@7 agreed. The cover art in general look pretty shoddy to me.

Who ever drew Shat in that picture needs to redraw him again!

Why is Shatner on the cover?

@15 Mmmmm, yes, Stacy drawn as a comic babe… hawt.

@18 Why, that’s not Shatner, it’s George Samuel, erm, Endicott, Sr.

Jim Endicott is supposed to look like a young William Shatner, at least that is how i pictured him when i read the books. Something of an alter ego for Shatner as a form of wish fulfillment.

I certainly did not picture him as a bulging biceps Conan the barbarian in outer space type.

Then he through in some cyberpunk, futurist extrapolating and a bit of star wars esque space opera.
