Bluewater chose Kennedy as its next comic book subject before the news broke of her interest in New York politics. "She was on the short list before all the hype about the Senate seat. She is an amazing person who has done a lot for education,” said publisher Darren G. Davis.
"Bluewater Productions creates intelligent, well-examined biographies of authors and stars as well as political and historic figures. If readers are looking for factual insights, relevant information, and terrific art, these books are a great source." Anne Elizabeth Columnist RT Book Reviews Mag

Gr 5-9–The authors of these serials are prominent in the narratives, appearing to comment on the production of each book and their feelings about the purpose of their enterprise: to wit, that each of these women is and should be an inspiration to others, having engaged in laudable public service. The series goal is to present the facts about women who, because of their involvement in politics, have been the center of controversial media attention that may have obscured that which is accurate from that which is accusation. Each issue ends with a list of source and reference material. The artwork for the American politicians is serviceable, if a little cartoony, whereas Princess Diana has strong indications of computer-based photo filtering. The content is dated. For example, Ms. Clinton has not been appointed Secretary of State, nor has President Obama won the 2008 election by the end of Michelle Obama. Obama is the choppiest, with the authorial voice the least sure about how to frame the subject’s influence and accomplishments. All of these issues are also available in one trade paperback volume, Female Force, vol. 1 (Bluewater Comics, 2009).–Benjamin Russell, Belmont High School, NH
