To the surprise of no one, Nelson Mandela's life is celebrated in a new bio-comic from Bluwater Productions, released earlier this week.
The 32-page comic book chronicles the life of the celebrated South African revolutionary and politician in pictures. The comic book is written by Clay & Susan Griffith, illustrated by famed artist Pablo Martinena.
“The Tribute line of comic books tells the stories of people that have made a significant difference in the world while they were with us that,” said Bluewater publisher, Darren G. Davis “It is a way for us to honor these people who have made a difference in the world.”
“Not only is this a great way to understand the importance of his contribution to the world, but a great tool for kids to read about him in a different medium,” added Davis. ”Our biography comic books are now taught in schools and libraries for students and reluctant readers”.
Previous Bluewater Tribute line comics have featured Ronald Reagan, Ted Kennedy, Margaret Thatcher, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and James Dean.
Digital copies will also be available for $1.99. Download the comic to your e-reader from iTunes, Amazon, Nook, Kobo, ComiXology, Google Play, DriveThru Comics, Wowio, iVerse, and more.
