Bluewater Productions sent out some PR yesterday about a new comic based on the life of Hillary Clinton — guess this political thing is so big even the comics are getting in on it. If we could we would just reproduce Kevin Melrose’s post at Blog@ Newsarama because he has a lot of fun with this story, from the typo-ridden release to the fact that the cover is a direct rip-off of IDW’s Obama and McCain comics.
The comic, called Female Force: Hillary Clinton, features a woman on the cover who doesn’t much resemble the senator. At all.
Seriously, the Bluewater book even imitates the IDW poses. Come on, now! That’s not innovation we can live with.
