Politicians at the Comic Book Store

For comic book publisher Bluewater Productions, it’s not superheros that bring in the big bucks, it’s politicians.

According to a piece on Politico, the publisher has sold 130,000 copies of a comic about Michelle Obama. “She competes with Justin Bieber just a little bit,” Darren Davis, the company’s president told Politico about the bestseller.

Comics about other politicians are also popular sellers. Politico has more: “More than 25,000 copies of both Clinton and Palin’s comic books were sold, and Davis and Schultz haven’t looked back since, going on to produce comic books on political figures including Colin Powell, Ronald Reagan, Bill O’Reilly, Caroline Kennedy, Al Franken, Nancy Pelosi, Michelle Obama, Arnold Schwarzenegger and George W. Bush.”
