Weeks-Ahead-Digital For Mitt Romney And Michelle Bachmann Comic Book

A number of publishers have moved to day-and-date digital comic books, releasing comics digitally on the same day that they are available in the major markets of the US, Canada and the UK.

Bluewater, famed publishers of lightboxed slimline biography comic books of politicians and pop stars, is taking advantage of the current furore over the Republican Presidential candidates after the Iowa cacus by digitally releasing the comic biographies of Mitt Romney and Michelle Bachmann, with Romney’s victory in mind and before everyone loses interest in Bachmann after her withdrawal from the race, rather than publish them at the end of the month.

This won’t play well with the print comic book stores who usually demand returnability from a publisher for this sort of thing,

The publisher also has Ron Paul and Rick Perry comics to come in February. Rick Santorum’s rise however seems to catch Bluewater on the hop. It shouldn’t be too hard to knock something up quickly though, can’t they just Google his name and see what they find?
