Anderson Cooper Comic Book Details The Rise Of The ‘Silver Fox’

ANDERSONCOVERBAnderson Cooper has a long line of titles to his name.  CNN news anchor, talk show host, and most recently, Vito Russo Award honoree at the GLAAD Media Awards. He is also a bonafide gay icon and quite possibly journalism's hunkiest, and smartest specimen.

Now, Mr. Cooper can add comic book hero to his credits.  

Released on June 6th, Political Power: Anderson Cooper finds the reporter starring in his own comic book. The 24-page chronicle, published by Bluewater Productions and written by Michael Troy, tracks the life of the Vanderbilt-bred Cooper. The iTunes description reads:

Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, the silver fox chose to follow his passion [for] journalism with a vengeance. Join writer Michael Troy…for an account of his life from decorated journalist to out and proud gay man. 

This book is one in an acclaimed series of Bluewater Productions' political comics, which include the stories of Joe Biden, George W. Bush, and Ron Paul.  

The comic book is available on iTunes for $1.99 and at Comic Flea Market for $3.99.

    “journalism’s hunkiest” – what you smoking?

    How about Thomas Robert’s and a host of others way ahead of him in line for that one.

    I like Anderson Cooper…but it does seem that the “hype” machine is in overdrive. He’s a lot of things…but a “super hero”? mmmmmmmm, not so much.

    And then there’s the line: “This book is one in an acclaimed series of Bluewater Productions’ political comics, which include the stories of Joe Biden, George W. Bush, and Ron Paul.”

    Quite the list of people to be associated with.

    Many of the comments are too harsh. Anderson Cooper has unintentionally done so much to bring acceptance of gay people to a society that had nothing more than disdain and hatred for us simply because, at least in my area, there was no one else around known to be openly gay who was respected, admired, and watched nightly before Anderson. Yes I’m in the bible belt south and came out in the 90’s. But since AC, my family and friends have stopped asking me to keep quiet about being gay. This is most likely a regional effect in the greatly conservative areas of our country, but folks, I am witnessing it working for the betterment of LGBT community here. And Mom and I both think Anderson Cooper is an very handsome man!
