Because I’m sure you were dying to know: Sonia Sotomayor’s ascension to the U.S. Supreme Court will hit the comic stores in April 2010, as Bluewater Productions prepares a new series featuring the Neoyorican judge. The pitch:
The Supremes have a new member! Meet the latest justice to don the black robes of America’s highest court. Sonia Sotomayor rose from humble beginnings in a Bronx housing project to become only the third woman and the first Latina to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court. Relive her historic journey in a comic book biography that’s ripped from today’s headlines.
With this, Sotomayor becomes the first Latina to appear in Bluewater’s Female Force collection: Other “luminaries” include Hillary Clinton, Barbara Walters, Caroline Kennedy and Lady Gaga.
I guess we should congratulate Sonia for yet another mainstream achievement.
