The ups and downs of singer Tina Turner’s life are explored in a new comic book.
A biographical publication from TidalWave Comics details her upbringing in Tennessee, her musical success, her struggles with ex-husband Ike Turner and her powerful comeback.
Publisher Darren G Davis said in a statement, “Turner’s life has been seen in documentaries, films, music and Broadway, so why not a comic book. We believe it is important for readers to have inspiring role models and to learn about extraordinary individuals who have overcome challenges to make a difference in the world.” .
The luminary is part of the company’s Female Force series, which has featured singer Dolly Parton, US Vice President Kamala Harris and former US First Lady Michelle Obama in the past.
Turner will celebrate her 82nd birthday on November 26. Last month, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the second time.
