Danica Patrick to be featured in comic book


IndyCar Series driver Danica Patrick finished up the 2010 IZOD IndyCar Series with a dramatic second-place finish in the Cafes do Brasil Indy 300 at Homestead-Miami Speedway and a 10th place finish for the season.

Now, as she returns her focus to finishing out her first season in the NASCAR Nationwide Series, Patrick’s also going to be the star of a new comic book from Bluewater Productions.

Fame: Danica Patrick is said to capture Patrick’s rise through the ranks in auto racing and the public’s interest in her. As you can see from the photo, it doesn’t ignore her sex appeal, which she has played to in magazine photo shoots, including appearing in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue, and her partnership with sponsor Go Daddy.

“We’ve all seen the pictures and heard the gossip about her,” comic book writer CW Cooke says in a statement. “But digging into her story and learning about her really focused me on the fact that she’s a real person and not just a pin-up model or a one-note person."

The Patrick comic book is the second of Bluewater Productions' to feature a sports figure. Soccer star David Beckham is the subject of a Bluewater comic book scheduled to be released on Oct. 13.

The 32-page Patrick comic book -- $3.99 at retail -- is scheduled to be released at comic book shops and on in December.
