Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s life story – from comedian to wartime leader – has been given the graphic novel treatment in TidalWave Comics’ latest biography, “Political Power: Volodymyr Zelensky.”

The glossy 22-page paper, published on Wednesday, chronicles how Zelensky, who once played a fictional president on a TV show, seized power in 2019 vowing to end a war with Moscow-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. He had no political experience when he took office as the country’s sixth president.

“Who is he? What drives him? Why is he the right leader for Ukraine right now? These are the things I was interested in when I started researching,” said the writer Michael Frizell.

The artist, Pablo Martinena, has also drawn biographies of David Beckham, Nelson Mandela and Donald Trump.

“This book means a lot to me because of my Ukrainian heritage,” US publisher Darren G. Davis said in a statement.

“Both sets of 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.”
