TidalWave Comics celebrates the life of Donna Summer in a new comic book. “Tribute: Donna Summer” will be May 15th on the 10th anniversary of her passing.
LaDonna Adrian Gaines knew she had a gift. Her voice filled her hometown church, her power to belt evident to all within earshot. After auditioning and landing a role in the touring company for the musical Hair, her star rose fast. Crowned “the Queen of Disco” due to hits like “Love to Love you Baby” and “Bad Girls” filled discotheques, Donna Summer became a household name. The life of the self-proclaimed “ordinary girl” who did “extraordinary things” is explored in the latest tribute comic from TidalWave.
Written by Michael Frizell, art by Victor Moura with cover by Pablo Martinena, this 22-page comic book is available both digitally and in print and can be found on multiple platforms such as Amazon.
A special hardcover edition is also available on Amazon with a cover by Ramon Salas.
“The disco queen is so much more than glitzy costumes and infectious dance beats. I hope our readers connect with her on a personal level by reading our comic,’ said 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. I always have had a fascination for Donna Summer. Her album “On the Radio” was the first record in my collection. I was also living in the town (Westlake Village) where she lived in later in her life. These are just some of the reasons for creating a comic book biography on the icon”.
TidalWave has profiled people for more than twelve years using the unique storytelling properties of comic books.
TidalWave has published well-received tribute biographies of other icons such as Selena, John Lennon, Bruce Lee, Christopher Reeve, Whitney Houston, Frank Capra, Lucille Ball, David Bowie and more.
Print copies of the biography comics are available on Amazon. Digital versions are available from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold.
