Official Press Release
Sonia Sotomayor made history in the summer of 2009: That’s when she took her seat as the first Hispanic justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. This April Bluewater Productions will feature her journey, profiling Sotomayor in the latest edition of its Female Force biographical comics.
Sotomayor’s rise to the highest court in the land is a truly inspirational tale. Because of this, it is a perfect fit for Bluewater Productions’ Female Force series of biographical comics.
In April, Bluewater will ship Female Force: Sonia Sotomayor, a 32-page comic, to retailers across the country. This will give readers a chance to join writer Robert Schnakenberg and artist Cesar Feliciano as they trace Sotomayor’s journey from the Bronx to the Supreme Court.
“Sonia Sotomayor’s story illustrates everything that is right about the United States,” said Bluewater President Darren G. Davis. “Sotomayor came from a poor family. Her father didn’t even speak English. Yet she has risen to become one of the most powerful people in the country, all because she worked hard.”
Female Force: Sonia Sotomayor is the latest in Bluewater Productions’ Female Force line of biography comics about female empowerment. Previous issues have profiled Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, talk show giant Oprah Winfrey, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and Twilight author Stephenie Meyer. The series is one of Bluewater’s most successful, with several issues, including one focusing on First Lady Michelle Obama, selling out of multiple print runs.
“I’m proud to bring to life the story of Sonia Sotomayor,” Davis said. “As with all of our Female Force comics, I hope her story provides inspiration to others.”
