When Bluewater announced they were correcting their Hilary Clinton comic, they also said that they’d be doing more in their Female Force series about “influential and important American women who have shaped, and continue to shape, the political and social landscape of the country”. I should have guessed who their next choice would be. Yes, it’s Republican Governor and VP Nominee Sarah Palin. (Best cover yet, by Patricio Carbajal.)
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. …
Scheduled for a February 2009 release, a month after Inauguration Day, there will be two prepared endings readied for print. One if Palin and Senator John McCain are successful in capturing the White House and another if their bid fails. The 32-page book promises to be an evenhanded perspective of Palin’s life and accomplishments.
The Clinton comic is due out in January. The Female Force series was originally announced as quarterly, but I guess they’re accelerating the release schedule to capitalize on interest. That extra ending should make a good extra for the collected edition. As for the future, Bluewater president Darren Davis says,
“We are already looking at several candidates for our third biography. I think you will be surprised who we are leaning towards.”
Geraldine Ferraro? Condoleezza Rice? Nancy Pelosi? I wish women had better political role models.
