Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S 'MAIN FEATURE':
Earlier this week I blogged about the upcoming 'Indy Comic Book Week' that starts December 27th, 2009....
The above pictured comic book was issued before that period of time, but still fits in with my blog series on Indy Comics. Plus you may still find copies of it at your LCBS during 'Indy Comic Book Week'.
Female Force: Barbara Walters #1 is NOT the first of the Female Force series from Bluewater Comics that I have blogged about here. That's because I have found each of the comics in the series thus far to be readable, enjoyable, and possibly collectible for later purposes.So what is this publication about? Here is the promo info:
By: Robert Schnakenberg, Ryan Howe, Vinnie Tartamella
This comic series has been featured on CNN, Fox News, and OH! Magazine.
She's a television trailblazer with a unique "View" all her own. Read the incredible true story of Barbara Walters' rise from the daughter of a nightclub promoter to the pinnacle of TV journalism. Learn about her legendary interviews, her battles with sexism, and the men she loved and lost along the way.
Okay, so what are my thoughts on this issue?
As usual, I enjoyed the great front cover by Vinnie Tartamella!
The interior pages were pencilled by Andrew Yerrakadu. His style was fitting for a biographical comic book format. The illustrations of the main characters that I knew of were pretty much recognizable. The storytelling flowed with the artwork.
The colors by Osmarco Valladao fit with the illustrations.
Wilson Ramos Jr.'s lettering was 'right on' as usual!
No sensationalism here in this story. I did learn several new facts about Barbara while reading this comic book. Barbara has been around for so many years on TV that I had kind of forgotten the path she had taken to get where she is today.
Sure, Tina and I always watch at least some portions of her year end special, 'The Most Interesting People of the Year'. And I have caught her on The View on occasion this year.
So, if she is proud enough of this comic book to hi-lite it on her show, The View, and state that it was pretty much right on, then that clarifies that this comic book is a 'winner' in my view too!
This publication can also be found at Tfaw if you can't locate one at your LCBS (Local Comic Book Shop) during Indy Comic Book Week:
