Official Press Release
Bluewater Productions added two titles to their popular biography comic series: Female Force Caroline Kennedy comes out this week (June 24) and an issue featuring television news pioneer Barbara Walters was given an October release date.
"I think these two women epitomize what we try achieve with Female Force," said Bluewater president Darren Davis. "Its not necessarily about wielding political power, but rather through the sum their influence they shape the debate. Kennedy and Walters, each in their own way, have done that."
Kennedy, whose biography comic hits shelves this Wednesday, tells the story of a daughter living in the shadow of a powerful political dynasty only to emerge as a tireless philanthropist and activist. The book includes her recent attempt to fill the senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton.
The Walters story follows her rise as a researcher for the Today Show to her ascension as the first female anchor on a national evening news broadcast. Her struggle for acceptance and respect serves as the focus of the book, but also includes her more recent accolades as a celebrity interviewer and the "force" behind the popular syndicated program "The View."
The Kennedy title was written by Female Force veteran writer Neal Bailey (Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin and Michelle Obama). Bailey's unique point of view narration style has been lauded in various reviews. His issue featuring Sarah Palin was recently listed as one the 10 Hottest Comic by Wizard Magazine. Robert Schnakenberg (author of Distory: A Treasury of Historical Insults and Secret Lives of the Supreme Court) handles the Walters book.
Ryan Howe provides the art both titles and Vinnie Tartamella who illustrated the covers for all the other issues in the series will again supply both covers.
Female Force offers a broad examination of influential women from a variety of backgrounds and viewpoints. Past issues include Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin, Oprah Winfrey, Condoleeza Rice and Princess Diana.
Also in stores on Wednesday is the new covers for the 3rd printings of "Female Force" Sarah Palin, Hillary Clinton and 2nd printing of Michelle Obama called "Night at the White House"
The comic book series, launched earlier this year, has drawn considerable media attention, including features on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and "Live with Regis and Kelly." It has also been featured in such periodicals as People Magazine, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today and thousands of blogs and other media outlets.
