Bluewater Productions started their Female Force line in late 2008 with biographies of two women who were very much in the public eye at the time: Sarah Palin and Hillary Rodham Clinton. As you’re probably aware, their stars haven’t faded since then, and now Bluewater has announced a pair of follow up releases to illuminate their recent exploits.
Out first is Female Force Sarah Palin: Take 2, written by Dan Rafter with art by Nathan Carson, focusing on Palin’s life post-potential VP. This will include her job with FOX News, the Tea Party speeches, her reality show Sarah Palin’s Alaska, and of course, her presidential aspirations for 2012. As you can see by the cover, Bluewater is fully embracing the discomfort both Democrats and Republicans have felt at times thanks to Palin’s actions and words.
As an example, the Bluewater comic references the speech in which Palin had jotted notes on her palm. Her critics savaged her. But Palin, much like Ronald Reagan did throughout his political career, used humor to turn a potential mistake into a victory when she showed up at a later speech with the words “Hi, Mom” written on her palm.
As for Hillary Clinton, her comic lies outside the Female Force line. Writer Jerome Maida and artist Laura Guzzo present Political Power: Hillary Clinton #1, focusing on Clinton’s time after the election, including her position as President Obama’s Secretary of State. Of course, they also hint at her running for President in 2012 as well. The Palin comic is scheduled for release in January, while Hillary Clinton gets hers in March. Both issues will be 32 pages and retail at $3.99. Will I be writing a post about Palin and Clinton’s third Bluewater comic books come 2012? Probably.
