Ukrainian President Zelenskiy’s life story told in new comic

Ukraine President Volodymyr ZelenskyThe life story of – from comedian to wartime leader – received the graphic novel treatment in TidalWave Comics’ latest biography, “Political Power: Volodymyr Zelenskyy.”

The glossy 22-page paper, published on Wednesday, chronicles how Zelenskiy, who once played a fictional president on a TV show, seized power in 2019 vowing to end a war with Moscow-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine. He had no political experience when he took office as the country’s sixth president.

“Who is he? What makes him tick? Why is he the right leader for Ukraine right now? These are the things I was interested in when I started research,” said writer Michael Frizell.

The artist, Pablo Martinena, has also drawn biographies of David Beckham, Nelson Mandela and Donald Trump.

“This book means a lot to me because of my Ukrainian heritage,” US publisher Darren G. Davis said in a statement.

“Both sets of my grandparents immigrated from Ukraine. I wanted to use this medium to not only tell a story, but also donate to the cause at the same time.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale will be donated to the International Red Cross.
