TidalWave Comics just announced the addition of Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett and Ketanji Brown Jackson comic books to their ongoing “Female Force” bio-comics series focused on “female empowerment.” TidalWave has profiled politicians for more than twelve years using the unique storytelling properties of comic books.
“Female Force: Amy Coney Barrett” is written by Michael Frizell, drawn by Martin Gimenez and cover by Juan Burgos. Wife. Mother. Professor. Clerk. Judge. Few people are as accomplished as Amy Coney Barrett. A law professor and protege of Antonin Scalia, Amy Coney Barrett’s controversial nomination to replace Ruth Bader Ginsberg on the Supreme Court put religion’s effect on public policy in the spotlight. The glare of the spotlight revealed Judge Barrett to be a principled woman of deep faith who is sworn to uphold the Constitution. As only the fifth woman to be confirmed on the Court, what role will she play? The comic book is available now!
“Female Force: Ketanji Brown Jackson” is written by Michael Frizell, drawn by Pablo Martinena with a cover by Joe Paradise. “The Ragged Edges.” Elizabeth Warren, the first female U.S. Senator from Massachusetts, has experienced first-hand the struggle of the middle class. In this issue, she takes on the mentality that some financial institutions are “too big to fail” while battling Congress to relieve the burden of crushing student loan debt which holds back prosperity for millions as they struggle in the ragged edge of the middle class to achieve the American dream. The comic book will be released this fall. Both comic books will be available in softcover as well as a special edition collectible hardcover.
“Researching the justices took the most time. I spend weeks watching interviews, reading transcripts, and researching their histories to craft a narrative accessible to a lay reader. We hope that readers learn something while being entertained by their intriguing life stories.” Said writer Michael Frizell.
“We believe that it is important for readers to have inspiring role models, to learn about extraordinary individuals that 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.”
TidalWave has previously done other Supreme Court Justices in the past on Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor. Both books are still available in print. The addition of Judge Barrett is the first time the publisher has featured a conservative Supreme Court justice in their comics. These latest biography comic books join TidalWave’s ever-growing library of more than 200 comic book biographies. Previous titles in the “Female Force” series include other political figures like Kamala Harris, Condoleezza Rice, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Nancy Reagan, Nancy Pelosi and more.
The biography comic format allows TidalWave writers to delve into the history of newsworthy figures and explore what shaped them. Several media outlets, including CNN, FOX News, “The Today Show” and Time and People magazines, have featured the company’s line of biographical comic books. Print copies of the biography comics are available on Amazon. Digital versions are available from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold.
