Elizabeth Warren Comic Book Gets A Sequel

BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- A comic book about the life of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is getting a sequel.

Released in 2016 by TidalWave Entertainment, "Female Force: Elizabeth Warren" told the story of Sen. Warren's childhood and entry into politics. "Female Force: Elizabeth Warren 2" is out now.

Publisher Darren Davis told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 that the new book will dive more into Warren's political career.

"With the Elizabeth Warren one, when we did it in 2016, that one was more about her basic life, how she became a senator, how she got into politics, her childhood, all that type of stuff," he said. "With this new one, we kind of talked a little bit more about her role in politics, as a senator, is she going to run for president, all that type of stuff."

Davis said it's one of his favorite books the company has ever done.

"The style in it is very polished, Pablo Martinena did an amazing job with likeness, it's actually a very pretty book."

Writer Michael Frizell said in a release that he wanted to flesh out Warren's story a bit more with a second book.

“I call this chapter in her life ‘The Ragged Edges,’” wrote Frizell. “Elizabeth Warren is the first female Senator from Massachusetts and has experienced first-hand the struggle of the middle class ... We see Warren battling Congress to relieve the burden of crushing student loan debt which holds back prosperity for millions as they struggle in the ragged edge of the middle class to achieve the American dream.”

Davis said they usually reach out to the subjects of the Female Force line, but said things become murkier with political subjects--they have to be careful to stay nonpartisan.

"We knew that Elizabeth Warren did know about the first comic book, and she was thrilled," Davis said.

The company has written comics in the past about subects like Barbara Walters, Ellen DeGeneres, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Condoleezza Rice, and Oprah Winfrey.

"In 2008, we started doing biography comic books, and we started doing them on Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin," said Davis. "With that, we did something different than just a normal biography--we kind of took more of a female empowerment angle toward it. Whether you like them ... if you're a Republican or Democrat, we give it the point where you just have to respect them for their accomplishments."

The first Female Force book on Warren is also back in print, and both of the books are now available on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble as well as on e-readers.
