“Infamous: Tiger King”: Right now the world needs a distraction. Perhaps that’s why we are collectively riveted to Netflix’s “Tiger King.” A murder mystery resembling an episode of newsmagazine “Dateline,” “Tiger King” introduced the world to the flamboyant Joe Exotic, a former magician, country singer and zookeeper with a troubled past. Joe currently sits in jail for planning to murder his rival, Big Cat Rescue owner and animal rights activist Carole Baskin, who he accuses of killing her husband and feeding him to her tigers. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction in this origin story of both Joe and Carole in a flipbook.
The comic book will also include a page about the treatment of animals from written by PETA Foundation Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Brittany Peet, who was also in the Netflix documentary.
“This is one of the first times since we left Diamond almost a decade ago to have fun with comic book retailers. If they bought a certain amount of comic books, we gave them a variant for Free.” said Publisher Darren G. Davis. “Putting this book together with Joe and Michael might be one of the best times I have had in comic books in over 20 years”.
The biography comic format allows TidalWave writers to delve into the history of newsworthy figures and explore what shaped them. Several media outlets, including CNN, FOX News, TMZ, Time and People magazines, have featured the company’s line of biographical comic books.
Print copies of the books are available for preorder on Amazon and various comic book retailers.
Digital versions will be available from iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold.
