Carla Bruni turned into comic book heroine!

Saturday, November 20, 2010

MELBOURNE - Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has been immortalised as a comic-book heroine, an American publisher said.

Bluewater Productions has announced, “And now Bruni-Sarkozy will be immortalised in comic-book form,” reports

The cover shows the French First Lady bare-shouldered in an evening gown with her hands crossed demurely in front of her, poised before a billowing French tricolour.

A narrator named Rene, drawn as a moustached official, promises readers, “I’ll take you through the files on our French First Lady … Being a French story, it has romance, sensuality, the occasional menage-a-trois.”

Bluewater publisher Darren Davis said the Bruni-Sarkozy story is part of a series called Female Force that is aimed at “female empowerment”.

“She has drive and ambition. When girls read this they’re going to see they can do anything, and be what they want to be,” Davis said.

The comic book tells the story of Bruni-Sarkozy’s life from her birth in Italy to her 2008 marriage to Nicolas Sarkozy.

It also features her past romances including with actor Vincent Perez, musician Eric Clapton and former French prime minister Laurent Fabius, an alleged scandal involving Mick Jagger, and her child by French philosopher Raphael Enthoven.

Davis said the comics are sold in the United States and Britain, as well as eight other countries, mostly to a young audience but also collectors of political memorabilia. (ANI)
