Here is something you didn’t expect – a comic book based on the Netflix documentary series Tiger King – or maybe you did, the world is really weird right now.
The 22-page comic book biography was written by Michael Frizell and drawn by Joe Paradise. The pair are the creative force behind the “Political Power: James Comey” and “Female Force: Stormy Daniels” comic books.
The comic book will be available in both print and digital with two collectible covers by Joe Paradise and Jesse Johnson.
“Infamous: Tiger King”: During the age of COVID-19, the world needs a distraction. Perhaps that’s why we are collectively riveted to Netflix’s “Tiger King.” A murder mystery resembling an episode of newsmagazine “Dateline,” “Tiger King” introduced the world to the flamboyant Joe Exotic, a former magician, country singer and zookeeper with a troubled past. Joe currently sits in jail for planning to murder his rival, Big Cat Rescue owner and animal rights activist Carole Baskin, who he accuses of killing her husband and feeding him to her tigers. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction in this origin story of both Joe and Carole in a flipbook.
TidalWave publisher Darren G. Davis said, “We wanted to create a fun and entertaining distraction from the current state of the world. I am obsessed with everything in this story and wanted to tell it with a different medium.”
“PETA is excited that TidalWave Productions will reveal some of what ‘Tiger King’ left out,” said PETA Foundation Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Brittany Peet, who appears in the Netflix series. “When readers learn how exotic animals suffer when they’re snatched away from their mothers as babies and exploited for photo props, they’ll despise ‘Doc’ Antle, Tim Stark, Jeff Lowe, and anybody else who profits from breeding and abusing these wonderful animals in shady, moneymaking schemes.”
Print copies arrive via Amazon, while digital version of the issue will be available on iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, and more.
