Topic: Comic Books - New
There's been a few issues of this comic book series 'Female Force' published from BlueWater Comics... Of which I have blogged about a couple so far, those on Princess Diana, and Caroline Kennedy.
That's because I enjoy reading about history and history makers. The sequential art format is great to read on topics that could possibly otherwise be a little 'dry' to read for the casual reader!
Plus, I grew up reading 'Treasure Chest' Comics that were distributed at the Catholic Schools where I attended in my formative years. Those comics printed inspirational stories of sports and folk heroes, and of course saints, as well as general history topics. Those comics, actually titled 'Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact' were published from 1946 to 1972.
Now, I'm not saying that Condoleezza, Princess Diana, Caroline Kennedy or the others in this Female Force series are / were 'Saints', but their lives are interesting reading in my opinion, no matter what political persuasion you may be of.
Here are the details for this one-shot comic book issue only. Please note that each issue is considered a #1 issue in the series:
By: Chris Ward, Dave MacNeil, Osmarco Valladao, Vinnie Tartamella
This comic series has been featured on CNN, Fox News, and OK! Magazine.
A special one-shot that chronicles Rice's life from her childhood to her accomplished career as the 1st African American woman to hold the United States, Secretary of State position. This issue will document how Condoleezza Rice became one of the most powerful women in the past decade.
I didn't know all that much about Condoleezza prior to her coming to the national stage in recent years. This publication gave me some indication of her childhood and her formative years. It also gave more info on what she did during her period of being in the Bush Administration.
The cover of the comic book by Vinnie Tartamella was excellent as usual. The interior pages were illustrated by Dave MacNeil and paced well. The colors by Osmarco Valladao fit the tone of the book, and the lettering was the usual great job by Jaymes Reed. The amount of text was a little 'heavy' in places on the pages, but there was a lot of ground to cover to cover in this publication, so I can forgive that by the writer, Chris Ward. It has to be hard to get all that history covered in so few pages!This issue's cover price was $3.99, well worth the price for this stand alone issue #1 in the series of Female Force. I recommend checking this issue out and the others I have blogged about in this series!
