BLUEWATER is releasing their latest comic book project featuring one of the most accomplished and well-known figures in the history of American pop culture, MADONNA, just as she celebrates her 53rd birthday. Beginning TODAY (8/17), fans can pick up their copies of "Female Force: MADONNA," with a cover price of $3.99 and written by CW COOKE and drawn by MICHAEL JOHNSON.
"Most pop stars owe everything to this woman. It's amazing all of the things that she's done in her lifetime, and I have a feeling that this is still only the beginning," said COOKE, who said he had fun scripting her life story.
The "Female Force" comic series offers a broad examination of strong and influential women who are shaping modern history and culture. In past issues, the monthly series has featured, HILLARY CLINTON, OPRAH WINFREY, JK ROWLING, ELLEN DEGENERES, SARAH PALIN and others.
BLUEWATER VP JASON SCHULTZ said, "Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in MADONNA becoming the phenomenon she remains to this day, more than a quarter-century after she burst upon the scene. A visual medium provides perspective that is not only accessible but more relatable to the average person without losing any of the information involved."
