Marco Rubio, Tim Kaine Get the Comic Book Treatment

2:00 PM

The 2016 election cycle has proven to be one of the most interesting and divisive in modern memory. 

For the past year, Storm Entertainment’s line of Political Power comic books have explored the lives of the politicians who have made this election both a test of wills and a referendum on disparate ideologies.

Recent volumes focused on Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and Republicans/Conservatives Rand Paul and Jeb Bush.

Joining them this week is Marco Rubio. “Political Power: Marco Rubio” is a 25-page comic book detailing the rise of and influence of one of this season’s powerful political voices.

Marco Rubio, the small-government conservative from Florida with strong roots in the Cuban American community, is a rising star in the Republican and Tea Party movements. 

Read about the life of the man elected to the Florida House of Representatives at the age of 28 and is destined to be a major player in the future of the conservative movement.

Coming soon is also a comic book biography on candidate vice-president Tim Kaine.

Also available is graphic novel that collects the “Political Power” comics seen on CNN, featured in Politico, and profiled by NBC and others. 

In “Political Power: Election 2016”, readers will explore the lives of Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, and Rand Paul written by Michael Frizell and illustrated by Joe Paradise; Bernie Sanders written and drawn by Paradise; and Donald Trump written by Jerome Maida and drawn by Amer Moghrabi. 

Cover by Paradise graces the trade paperback.
“Writing about political figures is tricky because it’s often difficult to parse the rhetoric from the fact, the well-crafted myth from the reality,” Michael Frizell said.
“Comics promote literacy,” publisher Darren G. Davis said. “It’s my hope that in addition to fans of the subjects that younger readers will learn something about the men and women who make our government work.”
The “Political Power” series serves as a pop culture companion to Storm Entertainment’s successful “Female Force,” “Tribute,” “Orbit,” and “Fame” series. The biography comic form allows Storm’s talented writers to delve into the history of certain newsworthy figures and explore the past, which shaped them. 

Storm Entertainment’s biographical comic books have been featured on CNN, Politico, Roll Call, The Today Show, FOX News, and in People Magazine among thousands of others.

“Political Power” is available on your e-reader from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, DriveThru Comics, Google Play, My Digital Comics, Overdrive, Iverse, Biblioboard, Flipkart, ComicBin, Axis360, Blio, Entitle, Comicblender, Kobo and wherever eBooks are sold.
