TidalWave Comics has done many comics on political figures for 11 years, making their stories available to all audiences.
“We believe that it is important for readers to have inspiring role models, to learn about extraordinary individuals who have overcome challenges to make a difference in the world. That was the thought process Darren G. Davis went through before creating the comic book series “Female Force.”
The story begins with her birth in California to Indian biologist Shyamala Gopalan and Jamaican economics professor Donald Harris, and then follows her story to becoming the second female African-American and first Asian-American U.S. senator. She is now the presidential candidate Joe Biden’s running mate.
“We wanted to showcase the strong women in today’s society that have inspired generations and shaped the culture of today,” Davis said. “Kids and adults alike can look up to these women as great role models. One of the coolest things about the comic books is that we found schools using them for reluctant readers.”
The upcoming comic is written by Michael Frizell and drawn by Juan Burgos. The cover has been done by famed comic book artist Dave Ryan. It is all of 22-pages and will be available both digitally, in print and in hardcover.
“I enjoyed working on this comic. As a public figure, Kamala Harris is a fascinating person. Her historic nomination is a natural progression of her talent as a politician. It will be fascinating to see what happens next. Love her or not, her placement on the ballot is groundbreaking,” said writer Michael Frizell.
“The Kamala Harris comic book helps readers in their connection to the main character on a personal level that the news, for its nature, set distance. Due to that, the goal of this project is to tell people details that most of them previously knew but couldn’t feel related to their lives,” said artist Juan Burgos.
‘Female Force: Kamala Harris’ will release on October 21st 2020.
