New York, Mar.18 (ANI): After gracing the covers of Vogue, People, the New Yorker and New York, US First Lady Michelle Obama is about to become a comic book superhero - in a sleeveless dress, of course. Obama’’s 22-page bio-comic is the third in Bluewater’’s new “Female Force” series, following “Hillary Clinton” and “Sarah Palin.” Both debuted this week and sold out before they hit stores. “Caroline Kennedy” and “Princess Diana” are up next. “Strong, independent women is what we”re known for. So doing the ”Female Force” series was organic for us - we try to show women in a positive light and tone down the ”T and A” angles. They”re no different from a Wonder Woman type of comic,” said Darren Davis, president of Bluewater. Davis hopes the comics are a teaching tool for children who have trouble reading and an inspiration for young women across the country. The Michelle Obama comic, which will be released April 25, and available for 3.99 dollars at Amazon.com, traces the First Lady from her beginnings on the South Side of Chicago to her time at Princeton and her life on the campaign trail. While the “Hillary Clinton” and “Sarah Palin” comics have sold about 10,000 copies each and are in their second printing, “Michelle Obama” has presold 40,000 copies and is expected to be the top-selling independent comic next month.
