After her passing earlier this week, Nancy Reagan bequeaths more than a legacy as First Lady, but leaves behind an imprint on popular culture as well as politics. Storm Entertainment captures this impact in a new tribute comic book biography released this week.
“Tribute: Nancy Reagan”, available in both print and digital formats, follows the influential First Lady’s career from her early days as a B movie actress to her transformation into the “power behind the throne” as her husband’s, President Ronald Reagan, closest advisor. Her story continued, as she became the public face for families struggling with the cruel twist of Alzheimer’s disease and as the torchbearer for her beloved husbands legacy.
Written by Michael Frizell and Michael Troy with art by Manuel Diaz, the book pays homage to one of the most influential First Ladies; a woman who not only supported President Reagan, but often helped guide public policy. The one-shot features a cover by famed artist Pablo Martinena.
This tribute book centers on the lifelong love affair with Screen Actors Guild, Governor of California, President of the United States and elder statesman Ronald Reagan. Her devotion to one of the 20th century’s most successful politicians and Republican Party’s standard bearer. The tribute book closes the last public chapter of the former first lady’s remarkable life.
“Mrs. Reagan shouldn’t be remembered for the ineffective Say No To Drugs campaign or the replacement of White House china during a recession, but rather as an effective power broker and savvy politician in her own right,” said writer Michael Frizell.
Storm Entertainment president Darren G. Davis added, “I hope readers come away with not simply a sense of the richness of her life, but how she changed the perception and status of first ladies from dinner party planner to invaluable confidante and advisor.”
The “Tribute” series serves as a pop culture companion to Storm Entertainment’s successful “Female Force,” “Political Power,” “Orbit,” and “Fame” series. The biography comic form allows Storm’s talented writers to delve into the history of certain newsworthy figures and explore what 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.
