Clover Press Explores the Life of Greg Louganis in A Champion’s Story

Greg Louganis

Clover Press has announced plans to develop a biographical graphic novel about famed Olympic champion diver and social & LGBTQ activist, Greg Louganis.

The creative team for A Champion’s Story is being finalized; Louganis will be involved in all stages of the book’s continued development and creation. A Champion’s Story is set for print and digital release by Clover Press in Winter, 2022.

The graphic novel will tell Louganis’ extraordinary life story, from his childhood and early diving career to achieving Olympic greatness and facing many challenges and triumphs in his personal life.

A Champion’s Story will be helmed by Clover Press’ Hank Kanalz and Matt Ruzicka. Ruzicka, a former executive at IDW Publishing, along with IDW Publishing co-founders, Ted Adams, and Robbie Robbins, each played a key role in bringing to life the bestselling graphic novel biographies of George Takei, They Called Us Enemy, and March, about civil rights leader and U.S. congressman, John Lewis.

Greg Louganis was raised by his adoptive parents, Frances and Peter Louganis. At the age of 9, he began diving lessons after the family built a swimming pool. He started training with Chuck Ruzicka, his first diving coach. He went on to catch the attention of Dr. Sammy Lee and coach Ron O’Brien and trained for the Olympics, where he won gold medals at the 1984 and 1988 Summer Olympics.

But his story doesn’t stop there. Louganis went on to experience many personal and career highs and lows. A Champion’s Story recounts them in a compelling graphic novel format, including his life as an adopted bi-racial child in Southern California, his reconnection with his biological family, and his health challenges. Louganis came out publicly as HIV-positive in 1995 and has been a prominent LGBTQ activist. He also has worked frequently with the Human
Rights Campaign to defend the civil liberties of the LGBT community and people diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.

Black Lightning TV Show Writer/Producer Charles Holland and Artist Antonio Fuso Introduces us to Cassidy’s Secret in August

Cassidy’s Secret is a brand new bi-monthly series debuting this August from Clover Press! The series was created and written by Charles Holland, writer and Executive Producer of the Black Lightning TV series, and illustrated by Antonio Fuso, the co-creator of Wyrd.

When a comet lands on Earth, it brings a child who will become Earth’s most powerful hero. Sounds familiar?

Well, it also brings an ultra-virus that grants powers to a select genetically disposed few. In a world where those with superpowers invoke fear and awe, some become celebrities, others become scapegoats – and some exploit these new abilities for their own agenda. Who will defend the powered few when the many seek to cage and/or control them?

Cassidy Crawford is the most prominent defense attorney who leads a law firm that specializes in protecting this new minority population from overzealous laws, police, and prosecutors.

This first issue kicks off Cassidy’s case of a lifetime – a murder committed in the White House!

Preview: Digital Lizards of Doom

Digital Lizards of Doom

(W) Gabriel Valentin (A/CA) Ernie Najera

In a world where science and sorcery have brought peace to the galaxy, a young warrior’s belief system is shattered when an evil robot and an ancient witch attack his kingdom, forcing him into a quest for justice. As revelations about his world are exposed, Dizzy’s faith is shaken, and he must now make an unlikely alliance with a mysterious ninja and a cyborg cat pirate. Together they’ll search for a fabled weapon that could destroy evil forever and bring the universe into an unending era of peace!”

Digital Lizards of Doom represents a brand new way of story-telling within the graphic novel medium, as the story is told with a combination of full-page artwork and a new dialogue system that pushes the boundaries of the format.

“This book is a great pop-culture meld, a fun mix of comics, video games, tabletop games, adventure cartoons, and more, that all combine to make something very new yet also familiar. Gabriel’s approach to visual storytelling is quirky, and idiosyncratic and unique: at least it’s new and fresh to me, and incredibly well done.” – Mike Towry, San Diego Comic Con co-founder.
