SPANNING THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM: BLUEWATER RELEASES RUSH LIMBAUGH, NANCY PELOSI, AL GORE & SONIA SOTOMAYOR BIO COMICS THIS WEEK
They span the spectrum of red and blue states. They are arguably some of the most fascinating and polarizing figures on the modern political stage today. And this week, supporters and detractors can get their hands on Bluewater's biography comics on Rush Limbaugh, Nancy Pelosi, Sonia Sotomayor and Al Gore.
Female Force: Sonia Sotomayor, Female Force: Nancy Pelosi, Political Power: Rush Limbaugh and Political Power: Al Gore are sold separately and are in comic book stores on May 5th. They are the latest additions to the successful line of Bluewater’s biography titles.
"These four individuals represent some of the most influential and historic figures of the 21st century," said Bluewater president Darren Davis. "Each has a uniquely compelling story that defines who they are today and how they got there."
Davis emphasizes that each of the titles strive to tell an even-handed story; that they are not "puff pieces or hatchet jobs" written from a skewed point of view.
"We understand that there are many that hold strong and passionate opinions, but Bluewater believes we have a responsibility to transcend the political rancor and give readers and honest accounting of these people's lives and accomplishments," Davis said.
According to Davis, the Sotomayor title has been requested for inclusion for the Supreme Court's library archive.
The books feature several Bluewater creative talents including: Robert Schnakenberg and artist Cesar Feliciano (Sotomayor), Scott Davis and artist Giordanelli Corbellini (Gore), Dan Rafter and artist Oski Yanez (Pelosi) and Don Smith and artist JB Fernandes (Limbaugh).
Both the Female Force and Political Power biography comic book series strive to present biographies prominent individuals responsible for shaping the political and cultural landscape. Both series launched in 2009.
The comic book series has drawn considerable media attention, including features on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, "The View" 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.
