Dolly Parton is getting her own comic book.
The country music star, 75, will be featured in the TidalWave Comics’ “Female Force” series which celebrates inspirational women.
Other women who have been featured include Vice President Kamala Harris, actress Betty White, former first lady Michelle Obama, singer Cher, and activist Gloria Steinem.
According to the press release, the 22-page Parton edition will be released on March 31, in print and digital formats.
The comic is written by Michael Frizell with art by Ramon Salas.
“We’ve found a niche with our bio comics,” said TidalWave publisher Darren G. Davis. “Our success with this comic shows that there is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many have thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes. With our bio comics, we strive to bring these new readers evenhanded, well-researched looks at some of their favorite celebrities.”
