Writer and author Arianna Huffington has been a fixture in politics since the 1990s and thanks, to the Huffington Post, she has become an Internet fixture as well. Now Bluewater Comics is telling the story of how a woman from Greece has become one of the most talked about media personalities in the world in “Female Force: Arianna Huffington” due out in Autumn of 2011.
Written by longtime comic book writer Martin Pierro and drawn by artist Nick Justus, the female empowerment comic book series, “Female Force: Arianna Huffington” talks about her time studying in England, her marriage to a congressman, her run as governor of California and how her website was sold to AOL for $315 million.
“The great thing about the ‘Female Force’ series is we can examine the lives of anyone,” said Darren G. Davis, president of Bluewater Comics. “Arianna Huffington is a unique personality. She is a woman who has reinvented herself when it was required and she still comes out on top.”
Pierro said he spent weeks getting to know Huffington in every article, interview and speech he could get his hands on. ”I took all of the facts I had at my disposal and tried to work them into a narrative that flows, and though her story is far from over, I feel I gave the comic a clear beginning, middle and ending,” said Pierro. “I’m excited to finally get the book out there to see what people think.”
Justus also did a tremendous amount of research on Huffington to make sure the art was accurate. “For the past couple of months I’ve literally lived and breathed, Arianna Huffington,” said Justus. “In drawing, ‘Female Force: Arianna Huffington,’ the research was essential and fascinating and I think it shows in the finished product.”
Davis said the story told here is not about a woman who chose a side, but someone who keeps a broader perspective in the world of politics. “The other aspect of her life I admire is that she challenges both sides of the political aisle,” said Davis. “And to read her story is to understand she is a remarkable woman.”
Justus agreed with Davis’s sentiment. “ I enjoyed learning so much about this true entrepreneur and driving force in the political arena,” said Justus. “She’s led a very eclectic and rewarding life.”
The 32-page issue features a cover by artist Joe Phillips and is available in October 2011.
