Dolly Parton is set to be the star of her own upcoming comic book as makers of Female Force dedicate an issue to the Inspirational female singer.

TidalWave Comics has announced that Dolly, 75, will be the latest addition to their Female Force series and is set to hit the shelves at the end of the month. The 22-page comic, titled 'Female Force: Dolly Parton', will be released on March 31, in print and digital formats which is perfect for reading on the best eReaders.

Dolly, who has a remarkable music career featuring 11 Grammy awards and has sold more than 100 million records since she released her first album in 1967, is also an actress and businesswoman.

"Writing about Dolly was a joy," said writer Michael Frizell in a statement. "Her creativity, philanthropy, and humanity are legendary."

Dolly joins the likes of former U.S. first lady Michelle Obama, singer Cher, women`s rights campaigner Gloria Steinem and nun Mother Teresa in having a biographical comic written about her.

It describes Dolly as, 'The woman famous for proclaiming, "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap," has proven to be a powerhouse singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, actress, author, businesswoman, and philanthropist. The ascent of country music superstar Dolly Parton from modest means to the most honored female country performer of all-time is empowering and inspirational.'

Dolly, who turned 75, earlier this year, recently shared a video of herself getting the Covid-19 vaccination and used her hit song 'Jolene' to inspire others to do the same, changing the word to 'vaccine' as she sang it to her fans.

And her outfit caught the attention of Hillary Clinton who praised it.

Dolly is a generous person and even helped fund the Covid vaccine early-research stages by giving a $1 million donation to the Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee with Moderna on its Covid-19 vaccine, mRNA-1273.

Not someone to boast about her achievements, Dolly, turned down the Presidential Medal of Freedom not once, but twice.

And if you're wondering why the singer is making an appearance - despite being a singer and not a superhero - publisher Darren G. Davis explained, "We`ve found a niche with our bio comics. There is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many have thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes."

And fans can't wait. One tweeted, 'Love her!' and another put, 'If there is someone who should be immortalized in a comic book it should be Dolly Parton. She truly is an icon with the heart of gold'.

The comic comes after it was announced that there's a Dolly Parton perfume also on the way.
