The Presidental Material comics featuring the life stories of U.S. presidental nominees John McCain and Barack Obama went on sale October 8, but the political fun doesn’t stop there. Bluewater Productions announced their intention to release a series of “Female Force” comics, a continuing series spotlighting influential women in modern history. Note the “modern” part—no Susan B. Anthony or Harriet Tubman. Their first subject? Senator Hillary Clinton.
“Female Force: Hillary Clinton” will explore both sides of the issue, from her positive contribution to the new feminist ethos to the detractors who argue against her attempt to secure the nomination to the bitter end. Though the battle for the presidency now comes down to John McCain and Barack Obama, interest is still strong and steadfast for what might have been the first female presidential nominee in history. Join Bluewater Productions as we examine the enigma of Hillary Clinton.
The cover design strongly evokes the imagery of the IDW comics, though they’ve already had to redo the cover once—the flag had the wrong number of stripes.
The mistake has been corrected, but they’ve gone and done it again, putting too many stripes on their upcoming Sarah Palin comic:
Palin’s life story from PTA president to the Alaska governorship to her surprise nomination as John McCain’s running mate is scheduled to be the second story in the recently announced “Female Force” comic. A final chapter is yet to be written.
“Regardless of your opinion, Governor Palin is a phenomenon. Her historic nomination has helped shape the national debate of arguably the most important presidential election in over 75 years,” said Bluewater president Darren Davis. “No matter what happens in this election, people will still be talking about Sarah Palin, she is indeed a female force!”
For both Mrs. Clinton and Mrs. Palin, they better hope interest is high—Hillary’s comic isn’t due for release until January 2009, and Sarah’s will be released in February.
