Angelina Jolie: The comic

ANGELINA Jolie's life has been turned into a comic book.

The 35-year-old actress is the latest celebrity to be turned into a sketched character by American Publishers Bluewater Productions for their Female Force series.

Other stars who have featured in the series include Sarah Palin, Oprah Winfrey and Hillary Clinton, and the new comic book focuses on Angelina as she experiences the ups and down of her acting career, motherhood and humanitarian work.

Brent Sprecher, who wrote the comic, revealed he wanted to draw attention away from the 'Salt' star's celebrity persona so people would remember her good deeds.

He said:" I learned a great deal about her struggles and triumphs as an actress, mother and humanitarian.

"Often painted as an edgy, slightly dangerous movie star, what is often not revealed about Ms. Jolie is her tireless commitment to charity work and her dedication to the plight of refugees around the world as a Goodwill Ambassador with the United Nations."

The writer added that it was his wish that young women across the world would take inspiration from Angelina's story.

He said: "My hope is that this biography, in some small way, inspires others to follow Angelina Jolie's example and make helping those in need a part of their daily lives."

Other stars set to star in their own comic book in the future are Beyonce Knowles, Bill O'Reilly and Betty White.

Bluewater president and founder Darren G. Davis said: "We're focusing our biography titles on the most intriguing celebrities, world leaders and artists.

"This is by design. We want to bring new fans to comics. One way to do this is to publish biographies on celebrities that already have strong and dedicated fan bases."
