“POLITICAL POWER” COMIC FEATURING COLIN POWELL LAUNCHES IN JULY AT BLUEWATER
Due to the considerable buzz and sales success generated by the recent Female Force comic series, Bluewater announced it will build on the popular biography series with a spin-off title Political Power, a new title that focuses on past and present American politicians.
Launching in July, the inaugural issue will feature former Secretary of State and retired four-star general Colin Powell. This one-shot format will cover his entire military and government service career.
“Like Female Force, Political Power will tell even-handed stories of the individuals responsible for shaping the American way of life,” said Bluewater publisher Darren G. Davis.
Future issues of the series will include Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan, Alexander Hamilton, Mae Ella Nolan (the first woman elected in her own right to the House of Representatives) and Nancy Pelosi.
“The title is not a history book with pictures,” Davis said, “but they look to analyze what made these individuals influential, and in some respects, integral to our national identity.”
With Female Force moving away from politics to women in the media, Davis felt compelled to find other intriguing and important political stories to tell.
“I think we have a unique way of exposing a younger demographic to these leaders that extend beyond the headlines,” Davis added. “We are excited how well the Female Force series did with schools and libraries. We hope for a similar reception to Political Power.”
The “Political Power: Colin Powell” cover was painted by Vinnie Tartamella whose credits includes “Female Force” Hillary Clinton & Michelle Obama covers. Bluewater announced last week that Female Force: Sarah Palin is getting a 2nd printing. Bluewater is expecting the same of the Hillary Clinton. issue.
