A graphic biography of the Alaskan governor was released in the US yesterday and has been flying off the shelves, with its publisher already rushing back to press for a second printing. Telling Palin's life story â from PTA president to her surprise nomination as John McCain's running mate, to the pair's failed bid for the White House â the 32-page comic is an "even-handed perspective" of Palin's accomplishments, according to its publisher Bluewater Productions. A comic book biography of Hillary Clinton was also released yesterday, and is proving equally popular, Bluewater said. "Despite our plan to overprint these titles, the demand greatly exceeded our projections," said publisher Darren G Davis. "We had no clue how well these books would be received in the marketplace." The two comics, both priced at $3.99 (Â£2.90), are the first in Bluewater's new Female Force series, based on influential women who are "making and shaping modern history". They will be followed up in April and June by biographies of Michelle Obama and Caroline Kennedy. Writer Neal Bailey said that although he didn't originally admire Clinton, while researching and writing the book he came "to admire and be utterly fascinated by what is obviously the most underrated figure in modern history". The Palin comic, meanwhile, was written with two potential endings, one in which Palin and McCain won the election and another in which they failed. Bailey said Palin was "perfect" for the series, "given her recent prominence and the way her actions make us examine where we stand on the issues". Bluewater is also planning a "Political Power" series of comics, focusing on past and present American politicians. This will launch in July with former Secretary of State Colin Powell, covering his entire military and government career, with future issues to feature Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan. "They look to analyse what made these individuals influential, and in some respects, integral to our national identity," said Davis, adding that they would be more than just "history book with pictures".
