Hey, Hollywooders! Did you hear the HollyGOOD news?!
Dolly Parton is going to be featured in a COMIC book!
Honestly, what can’t Dolly Parton do?
Yes, really. Dolly Parton is going to be in a comic book.
We have TidalWave Comics to thank for publishing this gorgeous work of art announced on Thursday, March 18:
DOLLY PARTON LIFE STORY FEATURED IN NEW COMIC BOOK.
— TidalWave Comics (@TidalWaveProd) March 18, 2021
Set to release on March 31, the 22-page comic book is part of TidalWave Comics’ “Female Force” series dedicated to inspirational women Dolly joins dozens of iconic women through history, including Michelle Obama, Cher, Madam Vice President Kamala Harris, and Mother Teresa.
“Writing about Dolly was a joy,” comic book writer Michael Frizell said in a statement shared with Reuters. “Her creativity, philanthropy and humanity are legendary.”
We agree with Michael Frizell––Dolly is a legend.
We have Dolly Parton to thank for funding research on the Moderna vaccine––she gave $1 million to Vanderbilt University:
My longtime friend Dr. Naji Abumrad, who’s been involved in research at Vanderbilt for many years, informed me that they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure.

Earlier this year, Dolly posted a video of her getting the vaccine while singing her iconic “Jolene” but replacing it with the word vaccine:

“We’ve found a niche with our bio comics,” said TidalWave publisher Darren G. Davis in a statement shared with Reuters. “There is a much wider audience for sequential storytelling than many have thought. These readers are simply looking for something other than superheroes.”

Dolly Parton wrote “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You” on the same day and I’ve been “getting ready to vacuum” for the past two weeks.

Can’t believe I didn’t know how talented Dolly Parton was until I was an adult because the cultural conversation about her was always boobs
