Ellen DeGeneres gets the comic treatment
Comic book fans take note: You might want to give some of your Richie Rich archive to the nearest university archive to make room for the latest entry in the growing "Female Force" series which purports to highlight strong women who are, you know, doing important things. This month, Ellen DeGeneres joins previous comic-worthy women Oprah, "Twilight" penner Stephenie Meyer, Barbara Walters and Michelle Obama (our own Michael Cavna wrote about the first lady's comic last week).
The comic book will, according to a press release, "follow the comedienne from her youth in Louisiana, through the endless smoke-filled comedy club circuit, to her breakthrough sitcom and finally as an Emmy-winning daytime talk show host." And, fear not collectors, it will also include her most recent gig as "American Idol's" fourth judge.
One free-of-charge suggestion for Bluewater Productions, the company responsible for "Female Force." How about a bizarro world mirror image series that tracks our era's more infamous women? Octo-mom has amazing possiblities since the comic medium would free up her narrative to allow her to appear as an actual octopus. Or Kate Gosselin reimagined as skyscraper-high super monster whose one mission in life is to burn hideous Ed Hardy T-shirts off of ex Jon's back using her handy eye lasers?
I'm available to talk about the concept.
Ellen fans, your issue hits stores on March 31.
