Painting Sarah Palin in a Comic Light
Comic-book artists have already portrayed the candidate as Sarah Palin the Book-Burner. Now they'll depict the veep candidate as Sarah Palin the Positive Female Force.
Comic Riffs reported several weeks back that "Tales From the Crypt" was releasing an issue that depicts Palin on the cover as a hockey stick-wielding advocate for censorship. This week brings news that Bluewater Productions has decided to make Palin the next subject of its "Female Force" bio-comic books.
One catch: The publication won't hit shelves till February. No matter, says Bluewater. Win, lose or "Florida" draw, she's already made her mark on history.
"Governor Palin is a phenomenon," says Bluewater honcho Darren Davis. "Her historic nomination has helped shape the national debate of arguably the most important presidential election in over 75 years."
Bluewater has readied two endings for print, depending on the election outcome.
As a comic-book series, "Female Force" says it profiles influential women in an "even-handed" light, including Hillary Clinton.
Given that criteria, no word on whether a Tina Fey profile is in the works.
SPEAKING OF CANDIDATES IN THE CARTOONS: You voted last week on which cartoon character had the right stuff to make the best commander-in-chief. Today, based on your balloting, we whittle the field down to the Elite Eight, in advance of next week's runoff. As they used to say in Chi-town: Vote early -- and vote often.
