WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton's political career has taken so many turns it has now spawned two comic books.

The former first lady and U.S. senator, onetime presidential hopeful and current secretary of state is the subject of a comic book hitting stores Wednesday, the latest in a series of celebrity biographies by Bluewater Productions Inc. Those previously profiled include entertainment stars like Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, and fellow politicians from President Barack Obama and Sarah Palin to Clinton herself two years ago.

The comic, illustrated by Daniel Fitz, is unauthorized.

But publisher Darren Davis says his company is playing it straight with history and politics.

State Department officials said they had no knowledge of Wednesday's planned release.
