Sarah Palin, Comic Book Hero

SARAHPALINCOMIC.jpgRecently Bluewater Productions released a 32-page comic book biography of former Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, tapping an unexpected demand–the book has already entered its second printing.

The book is part of the company’s “Female Force” series which included a comic about Hillary Clinton. They also plan to release comic books about Michelle Obama and Caroline Kennedy later this year.

Before the election, the company planned two versions of the comic. While they ultimately abandoned the triumphant Palin ending, GalleyCat would love to read that comic: “[There were] two prepared endings readied for print. One, if Palin and Senator John McCain are successful in capturing the White House and another if their bid fail[ed].” (Via Colleen Lindsay)
