Carrie Fisher, who many remember best as the battle-ready Princess Leia, more recently General Organa, from the epic Star Wars series passed away in December of last year. To celebrate the memory of this remarkable woman TidalWave Productions has released a new addition to their biographical Tribute series, Tribute: Carrie Fisher.
When discussing her career Fisher said “There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap.” Though she struggled with addiction and bipolar disorder, she remained a powerful and relevant force in the arts for not only her role as Leia Organa, but for her humorous and acerbic writing. Her death on December 27th at the age of 60, left millions of fans grieving, including her mother Debbie Reynolds, who passed away the following day at the age of 84.
The 28-page collectible comic book Tribute: Carrie Fisher is written by Michael Frizell and CW Cooke, featuring art by Nathan Webb and Ryan Paule with cover by David Frizell.
“I don’t like to write – or think – about death. When it comes to someone as beloved as Fisher, I wanted to pay homage to what fans love about her: her sense of humor, her persistence in the face of adversity, and her spirit.” said co-writer Michael Frizell.
“The Tribute line of comic books tells the stories of the classic entertainers that have passed on.” says TidalWave’s publisher, Darren G. Davis “It is a way for us to honor these people who have made a difference in the world.”
Fisher asked TidalWave to donate a percentage of the proceeds from the comic to the Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut, renowned for its excellence in treating psychiatric disorders.
TidalWave has published well-received tribute biographies of other icons such as John Lennon, Christopher Reeves, Whitney Houston, Frank Capra, Lucille Ball, David Bowie and more.
The “Tribute” series serves as a pop culture companion to TidalWave Entertainment’s successful “Female Force,” “Political Power,” “Orbit,” and “Fame” series. The biography comic form allows Storm’s talented writers to delve into the history of certain newsworthy figures and explore what shaped them. Storm Entertainment’s biographical comic books have been featured on CNN, Politico, Roll Call, The Today Show, FOX News, and in People Magazine among thousands of others.
