ROSIE O'DONNELL'S CONTROVERSIAL LIFE HITS THE COMIC PAGES IN FEBRUARY
She went from the "Queen of Nice" to the "Queen of Mean". She's hosted her own TV show and appeared in big-budget movies. Today she boasts her own radio show. It's been quite a life, so far, for comic, actress and talk show host Rosie O'Donnell. And Bluewater Productions will capture a slice of it in its latest biography comic, Female Force: Rosie O'Donnell.
This new 32-page comic will arrive in comic shops and at online retailers such as Things From Another World. The comic sells for $3.99 and can be pre-ordered here: Female Force: Rosie O'Donnell at TFAW.
Written by Dan Rafter and drawn by Kristopher Smith, Female Force: Rosie O'Donnell charts the controversies, feuds and successes of O'Donnell's life. Fans can read about O'Donnell's spats with fellow The View celebrity Elisabeth Hasselbeck and entrepreneur Donald Trump, her time as editor of Rosie Magazine, her successful daytime TV talk show and all the activism work she does.
The comic also covers O'Donnell's efforts to ensure that gay and lesbian couples can adopt children, and details the work that O'Donnell put in to end a ban on such adoptions in Florida.
"I imagine that most people have no idea what a varied career, and what a busy life, that O'Donnell has enjoyed," said Rafter. "I hope that the people who read this comic book, even fans who've followed O'Donnell's career closely, will be reminded what a multi-talented professional that she is."
Darren G. Davis, publisher and founder of Bluewater Productions, said that O'Donnell makes for a perfect subject of the Female Force line.
"Our Female Force comics feature on women who have made a difference," Davis said. "For the work that she's done promoting gay and lesbian rights, and especially for her efforts to ensure that gay and lesbian couples can adopt, O'Donnell deserves to be honored. It doesn't hurt, either, that she's an accomplished comic, actress and talk-show host."
Bluewater Productions has earned a significant amount of publicity for its line of biography comics, Female Force, Fame and Political Power. The books tell fair, researched and entertaining stories about the most important celebrities, sports stars and political leaders in the country.
