Wow…Scrappy Doo finally get’s his day as Bluewater Productions swipes his catchphrase and uses it as the banner for the upcoming Bo Obama comic book that is part of the company’s Political Power series.Â I can understand the President Obama and Joe Biden issues, as Obama isn’t getting nearly enough coverage in the comic press, while VP Biden seems to have all but disappeared since October, but the first dog?Â That’s a new one to me.
Press release after the jump!
President Obama and Vice President Biden will be the newest additions to the â€œPolitical Powerâ€ biographical series that showcases influential people in politics. Bo will star in his own comic book written for children.
â€œPolitical Power: Barack Obamaâ€ was painted by award-winning artist Azim Akberali and written by Chris Ward. The book will be available in August featuring two different covers. Barack Obamaâ€™s story inspired a nation, but youâ€™ve never seen it told like this.
â€œPolitical Power: Joe Bidenâ€ was written by Wey-Yuih Loh and drawn by Jonathan Rector. The cover was drawn by Vinnie Tartamella. It will be released in September. â€œPolitical Power: Joe Bidenâ€ takes a close look at one of the toughest journeys in American politics, exploring his earlier years as a US senator and the emotional rollercoaster he faced in becoming America’s youngest member of congress.
Also scheduled for release in September is â€œPuppy Power: Bo Obama,â€ written by Paul J. Salamoff and drawn by Emmy Award winning Disney and Warner Brothers artist Keith Tucker. In his book, Bo gives children an insiderâ€™s look at the White House. Readers will discover who is the real â€œtop dogâ€ in Washington. There will also be two covers for the â€œPuppy Power: Bo Obamaâ€ comic by â€œFemale Force: Michelle Obamaâ€ artist Joshua Labello and Keith Tucker.
Popular demand for the first two comic books in Bluewaterâ€™s â€œFemale Forceâ€ series, featuring Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, sent both titles into a third printing. The latest installment, about Michelle Obama, also headed for a second printing.
The biographical comic series has drawn a firestorm of media attention in the past month, including features on â€œLive with Regis and Kelly,â€ CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, and in People magazine, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today and thousands of blogs and other media outlets.
Two more political biographies, featuring Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, are in production and scheduled for release in the coming months.
