Politician Stacey Abrams’ Life Story Gets the Comic Book Treatment
TidalWave Comics is proud to announce the addition of Stacey Abrams’ comic book to its popular “Female Force” series focused on female empowerment. “Female Force: Stacey Abrams” will be released on March 2.
TidalWave has been profiling politicians for over 12 years using the unique narrative properties of comics.
Politician and voting rights activist Stacey Yvonne Abrams has pledged to serve her home state of Georgia. After serving in the Georgia House of Representatives from 2007 to 2017, she ran for governor in 2018. Stacey lost that race in a nail biter. Instead of resting on her laurels, she founded Fair Fight Action 2020, a group dedicated to helping the Democratic Party financially while strengthening voting rights. Most credit Fair Fight Action 2020 with overthrowing the Senate in the 2020 election.
Written by Michael Frizell, drawn by famed comic artist Joey Mason, this 22-page book is available digitally and in print and can be found on multiple platforms.
“We wanted to showcase the strong women in today’s society who have inspired generations and shaped today’s culture,” Davis said. “Children and adults alike can look up to these women as great role models. One of the coolest things about the comics is that we found schools using them for reluctant readers.
The latest biographical comic joins TidalWave’s ever-growing library of over 200 comic book biographies. Previous titles have featured Kamala Harris, Dolly Parton, Sonia Sotomayor, Michelle Obama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Condoleezza Rice and Cher. These biographical comics, written by some of the most talented authors in comics and beyond, offer an informed and illustrated look at the lives of these characters.
“Comics should be for everyone! I love writing for TidalWave because we don’t try to generate controversy when it comes to profiling political figures. Our goal is to tell a great story and make our subjects accessible to everyone,” said writer Michael Frizell.
“Stacey Abrams’ cheerful and decidedly down-to-earth approach is good medicine in our current political climate… Frizell’s account of her founding and her career invokes that same warmth, and I hope readers enjoy it. to learn about Stacey’s journey as much as I enjoyed drawing him,” said artist Joey Mason.
The biographical comic book format allows TidalWave writers to delve into the stories of newsworthy personalities and explore what shaped them. Multiple outlets including CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, “The Today Show” and Time and People magazines have featured the company’s line of biographical comics.
Printed copies of the biographical comics are available on Amazon. Digital versions are available on iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo, and anywhere eBooks are sold.
