Former President George W. Bush will define his own legacy in his own words as the featured subject of an upcoming issue of Bluewater Productionsâ Political Power biography comic series.
Political Power: George W. Bush, scheduled for release in December, recaps the eight years of the Bush administration using excerpts from Bushâs speeches, interviews and public appearances, his autobiography and other sources.
Considered by many to be among the United Statesâ most divisive presidents, Bushâs reign in the White House was riddled with controversy from the start. From questions of the legitimacy of his 2000 election, to his inflexible stance on the âwar on terror,â his administrationâs definitions of torture and freedom, responses to domestic crises like Hurricane Katrina, and the declining economy, this issue lets Bushâs own words frame his story.
âPeople have strong feelings about Bush.Â Heâs both vilified and hailed,â said Bluewater president, âSo we thought the best way to present a fair approach to his story, was to let the man himself tell it.Â No editorializing.Â We will let readers draw their own conclusions.â
The issue, written and drawn by Joshua LaBello, examines Bushâs entire life story, but the crux of the issue centers around his years in the presidency.
LaBello added, âThis book is not for the supporters of George W. Bush.Â Nor is it for those critical of him.Â It is a documentary of Bushâs time in office for the benefit of future generations.Â I want my children to read this book, see what happened during those two terms, and form their own opinions, for in the words of President George W. Bush, âhistory will judge.â
The comic book series, which launched in July with features on Presidents Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan, former-Secretary of State Colin Powell, and Senator Ted Kennedy.
Like its sister title Female Force, Political Power strives to tell even-handed stories of the individuals responsible for shaping our way of life,â Davis added.
