Obama, Biden and Bo from Bluewater


President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and First Dog Bo Obama will be the next subjects featured in comic books from Bluewater Productions.

President Obama and Vice President Biden will be the newest additions to the “Political Power” biographical series that showcases influential people in politics. Bo will star in his own comic book written for children.

“Political Power: Barack Obama” was painted by award-winning artist Azim Akberali and written by Chris Ward. The book will be available in August featuring two different covers. Barack Obama’s story inspired a nation, but you’ve never seen it told like this.

“Political Power: Joe Biden” was written by Wey-Yuih Loh and drawn by Jonathan Rector. The cover was drawn by Vinnie Tartamella. It will be released in September. “Political Power: Joe Biden” takes a close look at one of the toughest journeys in American politics, exploring his earlier years as a US senator and the emotional rollercoaster he faced in becoming America’s youngest member of congress.

Also scheduled for release in September is “Puppy Power: Bo Obama,” written by Paul J. Salamoff and drawn by Emmy Award winning Disney and Warner Brothers artist Keith Tucker. In his book, Bo gives children an insider’s look at the White House. Readers will discover who is the real “top dog” in Washington. There will also be two covers for the “Puppy Power: Bo Obama” comic by “Female Force: Michelle Obama” artist Joshua Labello and Keith Tucker.

Popular demand for the first two comic books in Bluewater’s “Female Force” series, featuring Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, sent both titles into a third printing. The latest installment, about Michelle Obama, also headed for a second printing.

The biographical comic series has drawn a firestorm of media attention in the past month, including features on “Live with Regis and Kelly,” CNN, MSNBC and Fox News, and in People magazine, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today and thousands of blogs and other media outlets.

Two more political biographies, featuring Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice, are in production and scheduled for release in the coming months.
