The comics industry’s fascination with the First Family takes an interesting turn next week with the debut of The First Daughter, which casts the child of a fictional (yet familiar) president as an action hero.
The Keenspot Entertainment comic stars Tasha — not Sasha — Tasker as the teen daughter of a president who’s “inspired in equal parts by Barack Obama and Arnold Schwarzenegger.” While exploring her new home at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Tasha discovers a secret room, and soon begins to display special abilities.
The first issue, written by Mike Rosenzweig and illustrated by Rob Nix, will be offered next week as a Comic-Con exclusive. It also will be available as a free download this fall from the iPhone App Store. Subsequent issues will be priced at 99 cents.
