JULIA CHILD SERVES UP A DELICIOUS COMIC BOOK RECIPE
Perhaps no single individual has left as indelible an impression on the culinary world as Julia Child. Her life story has been told in movies, books and now in a comic. “Female Force: Julia Child” will be out on February 6th, 2013.
The comic book which is part of the female empowerment series called “Female Force”, showcases women that have made a difference in the world.
She charmed millions of television viewers worldwide with her infectious passion for cooking and eccentric personality. The latest issue of Female Force will transport you back in time, through Child's days in Paris where she learned to cook at Le Cordon Bleu, as she wrote her famous cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and to her days as a popular television host.
Written by Michael Troy and art by Nathan Girtin the 32-page comic book will be sold in print as well as digitally.
“I've always had a fondness for Julia Child with her strange look and gentle giant demeanor. I found her life very interesting and certainly a worthy foot note in history,” said writer Michael Troy.
Bluewater has also used their “Female Force” series as an outlet to broaden awareness on important challenges that face many people. In “Female Force: Carrie Fisher,” the former Star Wars actress bravely shares her lifelong struggle with bipolar disorder. Proceeds from the comic book sales are donated to Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut, a facility specializing in mental disorders. Likewise, Grease star Olivia Newton-John uses her “Female Force” issue as a platform to discuss her fight against breast cancer and raise awareness for the devastating disease.
“Female Force” has been embraced by the media and featured on several television news outlets including The Today Show and on CNN. The series has also been featured in many publications such as The LA Times, MTV.com, Time Magazine, and People Magazine. Future titles will feature Martha Stewart, The Queen of England, and Mary Pickford.
