Martha Stewart – the Comic Book Heroine?

I mean at this point there wasn’t anything Martha hadn’t accomplished within her mini empire so is this really all that surprising?

Is Martha the next Wolverine? Not quite; however, Bluewater Productions seemed to have thought her life merited an animated biographical depiction.

The woman who created her own media empire — television, magazines and more — is getting a biographical treatment in her own comic book next month.

“Female Force: Martha Stewart,” a one-shot issue from Bluewater Productions Inc. to be sold in comic book shops, bookstores and online, will focus on how Stewart rose to become of the nation’s best-known purveyors of home decor, cooking and confident but practical living.

It’s the latest in a line of titles from the Vancouver, Wash.-based publisher, with previous subjects in the “Female Force” family of titles focusing on Hillary Rodham Clinton, Michelle Obama, Barbara Walters, Sarah Palin and Margaret Thatcher, among others.

“Our goal is to show the behind-the scenes machinations — many of them ignored by the mainstream media — that resulted in Martha Stewart becoming the phenomenon she is,” he said.

A comic book, he said, was the perfect way to do that.

“A visual medium provides perspective that is not only accessible but more relatable to the average person without losing any of the information involved,” Davis said. (Source)

Oddly enough I don’t see Oprah on the list of newly inducted comic book heroines & we all know she’s a “female force” also having built a media empire of her own. She better had made the cut, especially if Sarah Palin did.
