Review

I love following Blue Water Comics' Female Force series, in which the biographies of famous women are told in words and pictures. - Crafty Pods

I loved it. Comic biographies are tricky business, plagued with art complexity. When we read fictional stories, we create iconography based upon how the characters are described or drawn. Not so in a biography of a famous person because the reader is already familiar with what the person looks like.

"They manage to keep my attention for the entirety. And you know how happy educators like me get when the kids read these days instead of simply wasting their time with video games, charm bracelets, and fake nails - Vanity Fair Magazine

If all you know about Oprah, Barbara, Meredith, or Ellen is what you see on TV then you are really missing out on four exception women. Never mind the fact that they're great reporters or run media empires or are just funny comedians. The obstacles these women have overcome and the journeys they have taken to get where they are will blow your minds away. Who can forget when Ellen came out on national TV as being gay? But how many people realize just how much criticism she came under and the abuse that was hurled at her for it? But she keeps dancing. Barbara Walters is known today as one of the top interviewers in the world. But did you know that some of her early partners refused to work or acknowledge her because she was a woman? And the story doesn't end there. Read the issue to learn more!

Overall the writing in the issues is solid. They clearly present the facts and they don't trivialize the women they're discussing, but instead show them as people to admire for the obstacles they overcame in their lives to get to where they were. This especially noticeable in the Barbara Walters and Oprah Winfrey issue, which highlight the trials and tribulations both of these women endured, not only in the workplace but in their personal lives as well. I especially like the writing in the Barbara Walters issue and I had no idea the obstacles that she overcame. There are a couple of issues with this comic. The first one is relatively minor, but I think the author for the Ellen issue was a bit too close to the subject material. She talks about how she relates to Ellen, which is nice, but she keeps inserting herself into the storyline to agree or sympathize with points of the story instead of just letting the issue flow. It still has good information it just becomes a bit annoying.

The Female Force graphic novel series has covered influential women "who are shaping modern history and culture," So, I've talked about my obsession with educational comics here before. I love comics as an art form and a communication tool. And I love following Blue Water Comics' Female Force series, in which the biographies of famous women are told in words and pictures.
