She’s a national treasure and the patron saint of Tennessee. Now, Dolly Parton has a second comic book thanks to the folks at TidalWave Comics. The all-new story, written by Michael Frizell with art by Ramon Salas, features a special cover by famous comic book artist Joe Phillips. This 24-page graphic novel is available digitally on multiple platforms and in print.

Dolly Parton’s voice has brought her fame, allowing her to amass a $600 million fortune – a fortune she doesn’t mind sharing. In addition, Dolly donates to a foundation in her name, created the Imagination Library that donates books to millions of kids, and even pays students to stay in school. Her rags to riches story is inspiring, but her compassion and giving back have allowed others to break generational poverty, creating a lasting legacy. This sequel to the original Dolly comic book explores her passion for giving back to her community.

“Revisiting Dolly Parton’s story has been fun. I’m happy we had the opportunity to talk about Dolly’s philanthropy,” said Frizell.

The Female Force imprint features prominent and influential authors, business executives, entertainers, journalists, politicians, and activists. The latest biography comic book joins TidalWave’s ever-growing library of more than 200 comic book biographies. Previous titles have profiled Tina Turner, Kamala Harris, Selena, Betty White, Barbra Streisand, Cher, and Gloria Steinem.

The biographical comic series has drawn a firestorm of media attention, including features on The Today Show, CNN, MSNBC, as well as Time and People magazines. You can buy it at Amazon, Walmart, and other retailers. •
