Dolly Parton gets her own music book
Country singer Dolly Parton gets her own comic book, latest addition to TidalWave Comics’ Feminine strength series dedicated to inspiring women.
22 pages Feminine strength: Dolly Parton will be released next week Wednesday, in print and digital format.
Singer-songwriter, actress and businesswoman Parton, who has 11 Grammy Awards to her name, has sold over 100 million records since releasing her debut album in 1967.
Earlier this month, the 75-year-old shared a video of herself getting the Covid-19 vaccine, reworking her hit song Jolene with the word “vaccine” as she urged others to do the same.
A million dollar donation from the singer last year helped fund early-stage research by Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee with Moderna on its Covid-19 vaccine, mRNA-1273.
“Writing about Dolly was a joy,” writer Michael Frizell said in a statement. “His creativity, his philanthropy and his humanity are legendary.”
Parton joins former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama, singer Cher, women’s rights activist Gloria Steinem and Nun Mother Teresa in writing a biographical comic book about her.
“We have found a niche with our organic comics,” said TidalWave editor Darren G. Davis.
“There is a much larger audience for sequential storytelling than many realize. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes. – Reuters
