Official Press Release
Ron Paul is many things - a doctor, a politician and now a comic book character! Now he will joins forces with the likes of Michelle Bachman, Mitt Romney & Rick Perry in the new comic book series “Political Power”. A Texan, but no one can ever say he is boring and is 2012 the year this Republican, with libertarian tendencies and a loyal following, claim the White House?
Well whether he does or not, Paul is the latest public servant to be featured in Bluewater Comics’ “Political Power” series. Previously, Paul will also be featured in the Bluewater Comic “Political Power: The Tea Party Movement” and now longtime writer and bio-comic stalwart, and “The New York Times” bestselling writer, Marc Shapiro is sharing his story.
“In a way, Ron Paul is like any other committed musician or actor. He has a vision, he's well read and he's very much his own person. You may not agree with everything he says but you have to admit that at least he's done his homework before he's said it, which is more than you can say for most politicians,” said Shapiro, whose recent works include “Orbit: John Lennon” and “Female Force: Cher.”
Shapiro said while reading up on Paul, he was amazed at this doctor-turned-statesman’s appeal. “What surprised me in researching Ron Paul for this comic was his ability to cut across lines when it comes to age, gender and political point of view. College kids would be the last group of people you would expect to support a Republican but Paul has sizeable college student as well as solid independent thinker support,” said Shapiro.
Darren G. Davis, president of Bluewater Comics, said that Paul’s appeal to the more libertarian minded political junkie and his growing appeal to the mainstream of politics was the perfect reason to choose him as the next subject of “Political Power.”
“Ron Paul is such a unique voice in the modern world of politics,” said Davis. “We want to make sure we told his tale and shared his philosophy and Marc has once again turned in a top-notch script.”
Davis also praised the work of artist Luciano Kars and cover artist Joe Philips. “Both artists do incredible work and they matched Shapiro’s writing style perfectly,” said Davis.
