Sonia Sotomayor is already a hero to a lot of us, but now she will get the official superhero treatment from Bluewater Productions. The company will be creating a comic book based on Sotomayor's meteoric rise to the Supreme Court. It will be part of the company's Female Force series which will also feature Lady Gaga, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton among other notable women.
Sotomayor's comic book is set to be released in April 2010. Here is Bluewater Productions synopsis of the upcoming comic book:
The Supremes have a new member! Meet the latest justice to don the black robes of America's highest court. Sonia Sotomayor rose from humble beginnings in a Bronx housing project to become only the third woman and the first Latina to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Relive her historic journey in a comic book biography that's ripped from today's headlines.
We've never really been in to comic books before, but this is one that we'll definitely be picking up!
