Sarah Palin, hot-selling cartoon character
SARAH PALIN is sparkling big-time sales of not only her memoir, "Going Rogue." The former Alaska guv has also meant serious business for the comic-book company Bluewater Productions.
Bluewater says its releasing its fourth printing of its Palin bio comic last this month. The new "Female Force: Sarah Palin, Going Rogue Edition" updates adds artwork and features a new cover, by Vinnie Tartamella.
"People just can't get enough of Sarah Palin," says Bluewater's prez, Darren Davis, who notes that his company has never issued four printings for a single bio.
The "Female Force" series chronicles the lives of "strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture," including Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and (later this month) J.K. Rowling.
All of which raises the Official 'Riffs Question of the Day: What "strong and influential" woman do you think should be featured in the next "Female Force" series? (Sotomayor? Pelosi? Elin Nordegren??) All nominees now welcome.
