It’s not surprising that if American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres were to tell her story, the funny woman would do it via comic book! That’s exactly what she’s doing in a new comic in the Female Force series. Keep reading for more details on Ellen’s personalized comic book and where the proceeds are going…

Fans of American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres will be pleased to know they can find an illustrated version of her life story. The comedienne and daytime talk show host is releasing a comic with Bluewater Productions for their Female Force collection. The comic, which will retail for $3.99, will be available this Wednesday and a portion of the proceeds are going to an organization near and dear to the American Idol judge’s heart: The Humane Society of the United States.

“Ellen has been a leading force for animal protections issues,” Michael Markarian, chief operating officer of the HSUS, said in a statement acknowledging Ellen DeGeneres for her generous contributions.

The new comic book follows the life story of American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres, from her upbringing in Louisiana to her success as a stand-up comedienne to her television fame. The Humane Society connection is explained in the comic book which highlights Ellen DeGeneres‘ lifelong love of animals and her childhood desire to be a veterinarian.

The illustrated comic book is 38 pages long and was written by Sandra C. Ruckdeschel with drawings by Pedro Ponzo. Among the illustrations are sketches from American Idol judge Ellen DeGeneres‘ wedding to actress, Portia De Rossi. The Female Force series has previously released editions on Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and Hillary Clinton.
