Hillary Clinton: The Action Hero

By Elise Labott, CNN Senior State Department Producer

Powerful. Popular. Able to leap between campaign battles and diplomatic landmines in a single pantsuit.

The latest modern day comic book hero is none other than Hillary Clinton, who is being profiled in a new political comic, “Political Power: Hillary Clinton.”

The comic is the latest in a series of profiles published by Bluewater Productions which have featured a diverse group of personalities ranging from President Barack Obama to Lady Gaga.

The 32-page unauthorized comic book is not the first time Clinton has been immortalized in a graphic novel. Clinton was also part of Bluewater’s “Female Force” series, which also includes Michelle Obama, Sarah Palin and her predecessor Condoleezza Rice.’ The 2009 Clinton comic sold 20,000 copies, Bluewater said.

The new issue chronicles the events that lead her to become Secretary of  State, including her eventual support for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign to the detractors of her nomination to her confirmation.

Jerome Maida, the writer of the Clinton comic calls his portrayal of the former first lady a “fair and realistic” one, but he also makes clear his respect for the Secretary of State.”

“I am writing Hillary Clinton from a perspective of someone who did not admire her at first and throughout the process of research has come to admire and be utterly fascinated by what is a tale that most have not reported on,” he says.

“It’s a fascinating story,” Maida says.

    Looks like it would make a good product to wipe my rear with.

    I do not hate Hillary but I do not agree with her politics. I will not insult her just because I don't agree with her.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is smarter and more compassionate than all the woman-haters put together on this post. Just remember, little knuckle-dragging boys, you came from between the legs of a strong woman just like Hillary! LMFAO!!!!

    Reading many of the above 'critiques' illustrates what is referred to as the dumbing down of America. The criticisms were without any substance, empty and hollow of thought, and simply void of intelligence. Secretary Clinton is a remarkable woman.

    It takes a lot of courage to do what Mrs. Clinton does. I think she has done a fantastic job as Secretary of State and she has the highest approval ratings of ANYONE in Mr. Obama's cabniet.

    This sorry femanazi broad is the height of a Pampas condescending self serving carpetbagging Political Whore.
    Time and time again she shows all she's interested in is personal power.
    The only thing more Pathetic than Hillary are the brain dead zombies who worship at her alter thinking they get to feed off the scraps she pretends to throw about.

    The cover of the Clinton comic is not original. There are accusations that the design was swiped from the original artist. Amber Love did a really good article on it and how they screwed over the original artist Laura Guzzo. http://www.amberunmasked.com/bluewater-productions-scars-another-rising-comics-star/
