Betty White Comic Gives Back to Zoo Association

Blue Water Productions will donate part of the sales of  Betty White‘s new biographical comic to Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association (GLAZA). The star of the Female Force: Betty White comic specifically requested the donation.

Comic book author Patrick McCray explained: “Working on the Betty book was an honor and a blast. While covering a new entertainer is always fun, there is something special about profiling an icon.”

White has been a lifelong animal lover and has served as a GLAZA Trustee since the 1970s. White reentered the spotlight in May when she  hosted Saturday Night Live. She also landed a two-book deal with Penguin Group (USA).

Sarah Palin Sequel Comic Coming

After the company’s first Sarah Palin biographical comic sold out, Blue Water Productions will release a sequel entitled Female Force: Sarah Palin, Act 2. The comic will follow Palin’s life after the 2008 election and “the threat that she might pose to both Democrats and mainstream Republicans.”

Written by Dan Rafter and drawn by Nathan Carson, the comic will be released in December. It will sell for $3.99. Pop artist Lady Gaga has also received the Blue Water comic book treatment.

The press release revealed one scene from the comic: “[The] comic references the speech in which Palin had jotted notes on her palm. Her critics savaged her. But Palin, much like Ronald Reagan did throughout his political career, used humor to turn a potential mistake into a victory when she showed up at a later speech with the words ‘Hi, Mom’ written on her palm.” (Via Forbes)
