Edward Snowden is both reviled and revered, called everything from a traitor to a hero. The former U.S. government contractor was the source of one of the greatest leaks in classified information in U.S. history. This makes him the perfect subject for a new comic book titled "Beyond: Edward Snowden", published by Bluewater Productions. The publication will dig into the man behind the headlines, says the comic book's writer, Valerie D'Orazio. (SOUNDBITE) (English) VALERIE D'ORAZIO, COMIC BOOK WRITERS, SAYING: "As I researched more and more about his life it started to take more of a dramatic, almost like a poetic quality to it and I found myself drawn into the drama of Edward Snowden. Drawn into the contradictions. The Snowden issue is the latest of Bluewater's biographical comic books. Others have profiled figures ranging from Steve Jobs to Prince Harry. Those wanting a copy of the new Snowden chronicle can get it in print or online starting May 21st.
