Political Comic Books

Comic book company Bluewater Productions in Vancouver, WA began including politicians in their stories in 2009. Currently, the company has published three on Hillary Clinton and released one on Rand Paul in April. It plans to release a book on each of the people running for president.

To write this type of copy, a person must have a keen interest in and knowledge of the political scene. The writer must also be able to discern the facts surrounding the incidents and events concerning the politician.

Bluewater can hook up an artist with a writer, so it isn’t necessary to be able to draw the characters and scenes.

“Doonesbury,” a comic strip by Pulitzer-prize winning cartoonist Garry Trudeau, has included social, cultural and political commentary since it was first published in 1970.

There’s a market for this type of writing. Visit www.bluewaterprod.com to see what the company does.

It’s fun reading the output even if you don’t want to write it.

I published three ebooks in 2020: Women and Adversity, Honoring 23 Black Women; Women and Adversity, Recognizing 23 Notable Mothers; and Women and Adversity, Saluting 23 Faithful Suffragists to commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. These books are meant to be study guides for all students from grade school through college to help in choosing topics for assignments and to learn more about these noteworthy women.
