The race for President is in full swing, and TidalWave Comics is bringing the Democratic nominees to the world of comics with a series of new Political Power comics. The new wave will focus on the Democratic nominees as opposed to 2016's series on the Republican nominees and will feature a roster that includes Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, and Mike Bloomberg, and many of them are available now. "In 2016, we focused heavily on Republicans. This time, we are heavy on the Democrats," TidalWave Comics Publisher Darren Davis said. The comics will explore the history of these nominees and explore what shaped them, with Michael Frizell taking on writing duties for the books.
"As a reluctant reader, I found the comic book form easy to access, so I always believed comics could both entertain and teach," Davis said. Each of these books will be available on Amazon as well as digitally, and you can find all of the entries in the line and their descriptions below, as well as the covers for the series.

Peter Paul Montgomery Buttigieg, a veteran of the Afghanistan War, is the son of professors at Notre Dame who instilled in him a desire to learn. After graduating from Harvard and studying at Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, Pete became the nation's youngest mayor.
