(Newser) – Michelle Obama will join Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin with her own issue of Female Force comics next month, the Chicago Tribune reports. Publisher Bluewater says the biographical comic, the third in its series on America's powerful females, will tell the first lady's story from an upbeat perspective. As with the first two issues, it will steer clear of any controversies.

"We wanted to be respectful to all the women in the series," Bluewater's president said. "They've really done amazing things in their lives." The Clinton and Palin comics sold out immediately when they were issued this week and the publisher, already struggling to meet demand, believes the Obama issue will be an even bigger seller.
