Paula Deen may have lost her job, various lucrative spokesperson deals, and the respect of half the country when she was embroiled in controversy over the summer for use of the n-word and alleged desire to host a plantation-themed wedding reception where all of the servers were black people dressed up as slaves, but that's not gonna stop Bluewater Comics from cashing in with their Paula Deen Female Force comic book. In a press release, the company let the Klan members and oppressed white minorities anxiously awaiting the book know that they still intend to publish it, despite all the controversy:
Out this Wednesday, Bluewater Productions releases the addition of Paula Deen to their popular line of Female Force comic books. With the recent media hailstorm and public criticism aimed at celebrity chef Paula Deen for inflammatory racial remarks, Bluewater Productions announced that it will not change plans to publish its Female Force biography comic book title featuring the embattled TV personality.
“Under the greatest scrutiny, many of our heroes let us down, but we also believe in the power of redemption,” Davis added, “In all biographies there are chapters full of great accomplishments and those full of challenges. I believe Ms. Deen’s story is not yet completely written.”
"Ah reckon I'm a-gonna have to learn how to read them thar picture books," said one excited Deen fan when learning of the news.
"Yeeeehaaawww!" he continued, stomping his feet up and down and firing his guns in the air recklessly.
The comic may well reinvigorate the small publisher, which hasn't gotten this much attention since it published its dueling Obama and Sarah Palin comics in 2008. If successful, Bluewater might consider following Paula Deen: Female Force with more comics based on the lives of other controversial public figures, such as Charlie Sheen: Picture of Mental Health, Aaron Rodriguez: Weapon On (and Off) the Field, Dennis Rodman: International Diplomat, Mark Sanchez: Future Cleveland Browns Quarterback, Dan Didio: World's Best Boss, and Bashar al-Assad: War is a Gas.
We'll keep you posted. In the meantime, enjoy this extremely disturbing actual cover image provided by Bluewater:
