2012 Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain is getting the comic treatment this week – literally.
Bluewater Productions, an independent production studios of comic books, young adult books and graphic novels, is releasing a comic book about the conservative talk radio host on Wednesday. ”Political Power: Herman Cain” will feature an illustrated version of Cain’s life story, from his childhood as the son of menial labor workers to a fast-food worker and, ultimately, pizza mogul.
“Cain’s story is one of seizing opportunities, but also of embracing mistakes and moving forward,” Bluewater Productions wrote in an emailed press release for the book.
“Some of the most of the interesting stories don’t come from Hollywood but from the business news world. People like Herman Cain, Howard Schultz, Mark Zuckerberg, created unique cultural touchstone that have more entering value than the latest single from a pop single. Their stories are America’s Myths,” publisher Darren G. Davis said in the release. “We wanted to tell Cain’s story now that all the media from the previous presidential election is over. This is a man whose life story shows drive, ambition and redemption.”
Other political figures that Bluewater Productions has memorialized in a comic include talk radio host Laura Ingraham, business mogul Donald Trump, President Barack Obama and former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.
