Martha Stewart is Getting Her Own Comic Book

Martha Stewart is the latest culinary entity to get the comic book treatment. The domestic magnate is the subject of the latest biography in the Female Force comic series from Bluewater Productions. Each book chronicles the doings of a powerful woman, so the omnipotent Stewart isn't exactly a surprise pick.

According to the release, the 32-page volume will examine the "enigma" that is Martha, specifically how she has "simultaneously and successfully projected an image of sweetness and light, while at the same time allegedly betraying some of her closest friends on her way to the top." Comic book Martha does not have a superpower, unless you count hard-core business acumen and surviving jail time unscathed. Female Force: Martha Stewart comes out in July.

Davis said, “ Our goal is to show the behind-the scenes machinations - many of them ignored by the mainstream media - that resulted in Martha Stewart becoming the phenomenon she is.

Through it all, interest is still strong and steadfast for one of the most powerful women in the history of entertainment. Join Bluewater Productions as we examine the enigma of Martha Stewart and how she has simultaneously and successfully projected an image of sweetness and light, while at the same time allegedly betraying some of her closest friends on her way to the top.

“I am writing Martha Stewart as both icon and from a perspective of someone who might see her as callous, calculating and scheming. I did not admire her at first and throughout the process of research have come to admire and be utterly fascinated by what is a tale that most have not reported on,," says "Stewart" writer CW Cooke. "It's a fascinating story. Martha is the American Dream. She's a businesswoman, entrepreneur, and a name that everyone knows. She's been a model and a small business owner. She's been to jail and she's come out unscathed. She sounds like a superhero, but really, Martha is an amazing human being and I hope readers love learning about her as much as I did."

The biography comic book series which has been featured on CNN, The Today Show, Fox News and in Vogue, Vanity Fair as well as 1000s of other places.
