Comic Vibes: New 1st Lady Michelle Obama to be Featured in Comic Book

First, the Barack Comic that I blogged about over the summer that came out in October.

Now, our new First Lady gets her own comic as well, available in stores April '09!

From Blue Water Productions:

BELLINGHAM, WASH. (November 11, 2008) -- The life of America’s future first lady, Michelle Obama, will be the subject of the latest chapter of Bluewater Productions' ongoing "Female Force" comic series. The book will follow Obama, a Princeton- and Harvard-educated lawyer, from her youth on the South Side of Chicago to her community, civic service and private-sector career successes through the 2008 presidential campaign and election day. The book is scheduled for release in April 2009..

"Mrs. Obama is a dynamic force and one of the most influential women in the world,” said Bluewater Productions President Darren G. Davis. "Her potential influence on future policy decisions makes her a fascinating figure to feature.”

"In creating an image of our new first lady, Michelle Obama, it was my goal to represent her class, beauty and intelligence," said artist Vinnie Tartamella. "I hope I reflected these qualities and characteristics in this historical piece. I'm truly honored to have been asked to create this."

The latest addition to the "Female Force" series follows the biographies of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, announced earlier this year. “Female Force” comic books showcase influential women who are making and shaping modern history. The “Hillary Clinton: Female Force” comic book is available for order through Diamond Distributors, order code NOV083848 F.
