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:

“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.”
