On Wednesday, TidalWave Comics released a comic detailing the life of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
The “Political Power: Volodymyr Zelenskyy” comic is part of the company’s comic series which focuses on politicians and political figures.
The 22-page book was written by Michael Frizell and drawn by Pablo Martinena. It was released days before the war between Ukraine and Russia hit the three-month mark.
“It was a difficult script to write. The editor and I wanted to focus on the man beyond the current media attention – Ukraine’s war with Russia and Zelensky’s battle of wills with Putin. Who is he? What makes him tick? Why is he the right leader for Ukraine right now? These are the things I was interested in when I started the research,” said said Frizell, according to TidalWave Comics.
Zelensky became popular as a comedian and actor before being elected president.
Part of the money from the comic will go to the International Red Cross to support Ukraine.
“This book means a lot to me because of my Ukrainian heritage. Both sets of my grandparents immigrated from Ukraine. I wanted to use this medium to not only tell a story, but also donate to the cause at the same time,” said publisher Darren G. Davis. “It doesn’t hurt that Volodymyr Zelensky has a fascinating story.”
