Hillary Clinton is The Female Force!

Today was the official street release of "Female Force," a comic series based on prominent women in modern politics, including and most importantly, the one and only: Hillary Clinton.

“We’re excited to bring this book to the table,” says Bluewater’s Vice President Jason Schultz.“There are a couple comics focusing on John McCain and Barack Obama, we wanted to feature Hilary who broke all the rules in this election and made history.” Oh! I LOVE that line!

Publisher Darren G. Davis said, “John McCain and Barack Obama have all of the spotlight. Our goal is to show the historical impact that maybe underrated by those who are too focused on the candidates to fully understand the historical impact of being a few votes short for the 1st female president. Many people are daunted by the endless stream of articles on the candidates. A visual medium provides perspective that is not only accessible but more relatable to the average person without loosing any of the information involved”.

This 32-page comic book went through two cover options. Scratching out the tighter fitting superhero-esque pantsuit and opting for the more classic Hillary look. I think the first option is hot, but the makers thought it looked too much like a joke and they wanted to make sure they were taken seriously.

The book is officially entitled: “Female Force: Hillary Clinton” will be telling the story of her life, and will explore both sides of the issue, from her positive contribution to the new feminist ethos to the detractors who argue against her attempt to secure the nomination to the very end.

Writer Neal Bailey penned each title to follow true-life events of influential women in the political spotlight, who have been and will continue to be instrumental in shaping American history. While true to comic book format, the narratives are often in flippant or satirical in tone, but reflect what the company says is "great respect for the intelligent women they chose" for their series.

“I am writing Hillary Clinton from a perceptive of someone who did not admire her at 1st and throughout the process of research has come to admire and be utterly fascinated by what is obviously the most underrated historical figure in modern History," said writer Neal Bailey. Of course, this is what always happens... once you start to learn about the greatness of Madame Hillary you come to know she is in fact the most underrated, unappreciated, important and historic political figure, both male and female in our time.

Bluewater Productions has also created a comic on the life of Sarah Palin, and is looking to soon release comics on Michelle Obama and Caroline Kennedy.

So far, I've heard that they are all SOLD OUT of Hillary Comics. (I tried and failed to order one today!)

“We are excited to be going to a 2nd printing on the Hillary Clinton title,” said Bluewater Productions publisher Darren G. Davis. “We thought when we overprinted these issues there would be enough for the demand. We had no clue how well these books would be received in the marketplace."

Oh, I am sure they will be doing much more than a second run of these babies. Pre-Order them here!
