Another tribute paid to Justice Sotomayor — her own comic book!

LatinaLista — After watching Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor field questions from those Congressmen during her confirmation hearings, the popular impression was that this Puertoriqueña was a force to be reckoned with.


It seems the publishers of Bluewater Productions agreed because Justice Sotomayor is the latest addition to the biographical comic book series known as Female Force.

According to Darren Davis, president of Bluewater Productions, the Female Force series features notable women whose stories have the potential to empower readers. Needless to say, Sotomayor’s story meets that criteria:

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.

Past Female Force subjects have been Michelle Obama, Caroline Kennedy, the Twilight books author Stephanie Meyer, Condoleeza Rice, Ellen DeGeneris, Hillary Clinton, among many others.

The comic book sells for $3.99 and hits racks in April 2010.

It can be pre-ordered at comic book shops (link is to a comic shop locator) — for those Wise Latinas who don’t stand in line!
