End of Days: Comics on The View

2012 came a little early today: Vinnie Tartamella writes to tell us that Bluewater’s comics biographies were discussed on The View today, specifically the Barbara Walters edition, for which Tartamella provided the cover. For those who work during the day, The View is an hourlong discussion show in which a variety of colorful yentas talk about this that and the other thing, endlessly. To be honest, if you turned a camera on The Beat and her pals in about 25 years, or your mom right now, it would be exactly like The View.

According to Tartamella, the ladies also showed the covers of the Oprah Winfrey and Michelle Obama bio comics.


You can see Babs seems pretty enthusiastic in these screen caps, but Elisabeth Hasselbeck, as usual, looks like she just smelled a ten-day-old egg/turnip/limberger casserole.

  3. a book I worked on was on the View How cool is that. It’s nice to see comics in a good light. It doesn’t happen very much.

  4. Good for Bluewater. I’m glad they continue to make the rounds. The View is a nice feather in their caps.

  5. Alan Coil says:

    Hasselbeck doesn’t like anything unless it is about her.

  6. Hasselbeck’s wondering why they haven’t given her a comic book yet.

    From Survivor to the View! It’ll be as big as Palin’s book! (In her mind)

    The Barbara Walters comic is a nice background for what is sure to become a Bash Elisabeth Hasselbeck thread. Congrats to Babs and I’m glad they discussed the comic on the show. Please try to keep the Anti-Conservative snark to minimum. We love comics too.

    When they do a Whoopi issue, it should include a “not rape-rape” variant.

  11. Frank, Whoopi’s variant cover is Ted Danson in blackface.

  2. […] Fresh from their triumph on The View, with a Babwa Wawa comic, Bluewater has announced another comics bio of a daytime staple: Ellen Degeneres. Female Force: Ellen Degeneres Author(s): Sandra C. Ruckdeschel Artist(s) Pedro Ponzo Cover Artist(s): cover by Viinie Tartamella Ellen DeGeneres is taking the world by storm!  Emmy’s!  Endless accolades!  It all seems so easy, but Ellen’s journey to get where she is now was not always a smooth one. She’s felt the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. But through it all, she managed to stay true to herself and prove that she is a female force to be reckoned with! […]
