The Raw Story relays a story from Heard On The Hill on how Hillary Clinton encouraged Bluewater Productions to change the cover of their Female Force comic.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “people” allegedly got a comic book artist to spike his unflattering cover, according to a report in a Capitol Hill paper.
“Clinton is one of the stars of ‘Female Force,’ a new biographical comic book series that studies America’s most famous political women,” Emily Heil and Elizabeth Brotherton write for Roll Call’s Heard on the Hill. “But when comic creators Bluewater Productions offered a sneak peak of Clinton’s cover art a few months back, Madame Secretary apparently wasn’t pleased with the depiction..”
The gossip column continues, “Bluewater Publisher Darren Davis told HOH that the company ‘heard through her people’ that Clinton disliked the cover, which had her sporting a blue suit whose buttons were straining over a chunky hourglass figure. Think more Lara Croft and less America’s top diplomat.”
“We also had Hillary Clinton fans up in arms about it,” Davis told Roll Call. “So we wanted to make sure it was done 100 percent out of respect.”
Heil and Brotherton add, “Bluewater asked artist Vinnie Tartamella to create a new, less-sexy cover. Tartamella also placed Clinton in a blue pantsuit — but in the second version, Clinton looks thinner, with an open jacket and a strand of pearls tastefully draped around her neck.”
