Biography comics are on the way for the two controversial liberal politicians from Bluewater Comics.
Former Vice President Al Gore and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi,
two of the more polarizing figures on the modern political stage, will
be the featured subjects of a pair of upcoming issues of Bluewater
Productions’ biography comic series.
Political Power: Al Gore and Female Force: Nancy Pelosi,
both scheduled for release in January, highlight the careers of two
influential political figures that are shaping the debate on some of
the most important issues of the day.
Gore’s story follows his rise as a privileged Senator’s son to his failed bid for the White House to his ascendancy as a prime mover in the climate change and global warming debate.
“What is fascinating about Al Gore is he is a contrast of opposites,”
noted the issue’s author Scott Davis, “He’s a cagey politician, but
given to sophomoric exaggerations. He’s the embodiment of Big Government and the idealistic conscience of the country.”
Similarly, Rep. Nancy Pelosi,
according to writer Dan Rafter, evokes a “love her or hate her”
reaction. “She is arguably the most powerful woman in government.”
Like Gore, Pelosi, who represents California’s 8th district (San Francisco), comes from a political family, which includes two mayors of Baltimore. However, forging her own political fortunes, she has risen through the ranks of the Democratic Party to become the first woman in American history to lead a major party in the U.S. Congress.
"What I find most intriguing about her, though, is the amount of anger
she seems to inspire from her critics. In this biography, I was hoping
to figure out, at least somewhat, why so many people delight in hating
Nancy Pelosi." Said Rafter.
issues are illustrated by Aldo Giordanelli Corbellini (Gore) Andrew
Yerrakadu (Pelosi) and cover art is provided by Patricio Carbajal and Jim McDermott.
Both the Female Force and Political Power biography comic book series
strive to present even-handed stories of prominent individuals
responsible for shaping the political and cultural landscape. Both
series launched in 2009.
