Official Press Release

Bluewater is pleased to announce a special graphic novel featuring an actual saint and a true hero to millions around the world. “Female Force: Mother Teresa: The Graphic Novel” an original graphic novel will be released in October and have a cover price of $14.99. The bio on how she grew in stature and influence from a simple nun to a woman whose name grew synonymous with helping the poor will be written and drawn by Watami.

The “Female Force” comic series offers a broad examination of strong and influential women who have shaped modern history and culture. In past issues, the monthly series has featured, Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Princess Diana, Ellen Degeneres and others.

Publisher Darren G. Davis said, “Our goal is to show the little-known events and influences that resulted in Mother Teresa becoming the worldwide symbol of faith, hope and charity to millions across the world.”

This gigantic 163-page graphic novel will be chronicling this saint's saga. This October, “Female Force: Mother Teresa: The Graphic Novel ” will explore various dimensions to this amazing woman, from her humble childhood to her countless successes in aiding and comforting the poor.

The book starring the woman from Calcutta marks the apex of the mission Eiji Han Shimizu, owner of Emotional Content, set out to accomplish with his company.

“I wanted people to rediscover and value true heroism through my graphic novel series”, says Shimizu. “We are accustomed to thinking of comic book heroes as vigilantes battling crime and injustice through face-to-face-or mask-to-mask-combat with the enemy. However, I think superheroes in graphic novels don't have to be able to fly, cast lasers from their eyes or have six-pack abs. Without the help of these powers or appearances, there have been great role models in our history who have fought for others with their courage, self-sacrifice, compassion and determination. I believe that these are the true qualities of superheroes.”

“With that said, undoubtedly Mother Teresa is my superhero”, he continues. “When I visited the Home for the Dying Destitute in Kolkata for my documentary film project (www.TheHappyMovie.com) four years ago, I vividly felt her presence where hundreds of volunteers around the world serve with the poorest of the poor.”

“Mother Teresa does live in the compassionate minds and altruistic acts of millions of people”, Shimizu concludes. “This book is our humble contribution to further spread to the world the love that this great superhero has left us.”

Join Bluewater Productions and Emotional Content for this co-production as they examine the amazing journey of Mother Teresa and how she became not only one of the best-known women in the world and a Nobel Prize winner, but also one of its most beloved and admired people.
