Carrie Fisher: Celebrated In Comics
Carrie Fisher, who passed away in December is the actress who best known for portraying the determined, battle-ready Princess Leia in the epic saga Star Wars, is the latest star of TidalWave Productions’ popular Tribute comic book biography series. Tribute: Carrie Fisher is released this Wednesday.
About her career, Carrie Frances Fisher once said, “There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap.” Despite her well-documented struggle with addiction and bipolar disorder, Fisher managed to remain a powerful and relevant force in the arts. Known for her role as Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars and her humorous and acerbic writing, Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016 at the age of 60. Her death left millions of fans grieving, including her mother, Debbie Reynolds, 84, who died a day later. Fisher’s story is both frustrating and touching.
The 28-page collectible comic book Tribute: Carrie Fisher is written by Michael Frizell and CW Cooke, featuring art by Nathan Webb and Ryan Paule with cover by David Frizell.
“I don’t like to write – or think – about death. When it comes to someone as beloved as Fisher, I wanted to pay homage to what fans love about her: her sense of humor, her persistence in the face of adversity, and her spirit.” said co-writer Michael Frizell.
“The Tribute line of comic books tells the stories of the classic entertainers that have passed on.” says TidalWave’s publisher, Darren G. Davis “It is a way for us to honor these people who have made a difference in the world.”
Fisher asked TidalWave to donate a percentage of the proceeds from the comic to the Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut, renowned for its excellence in treating psychiatric disorders.
TidalWave has published well-received tribute biographies of other icons such as John Lennon, Christopher Reeves, Whitney Houston, Frank Capra, Lucille Ball, David Bowie and more.
The “Tribute” series serves as a pop culture companion to TidalWave 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.
