Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg stars in a new comic book

Facebook’s COO Sheryl Sandberg, the author of 2013’s “Lean In,” is starring in a new comic book.

The 32-page tome is slated to be released Wednesday and is being published by Bluewater Productions, the business behind such comic books about pop culture icons including Kim Kardashian, Stephen Hawking and Anderson Cooper.

The comic book, which will be available both in print and digitally, is a biography of Sandberg’s life told in the first person. It begins with her freshman year at Harvard University in 1987. Written by Michael Frizell and illustrated by Angel Bernuy, the comic is part of a series called Female Force, which has featured a slew of powerful women including Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama and Melinda Gates.

“Our goal is to show the behind-the-scenes machinations — many of them ignored by the mainstream media — that resulted in Sheryl Sandberg becoming a leading voice in empowering successful businesswomen,” said publisher Darren Davis in a statement.

In an email to Fortune, Davis said: “We have not heard back from her people.” He added that the books are “heavily researched.” The publisher also reaches out to “all subjects to see if they want to be a part of it and donate a percentage to a nonprofit of their choice.”

In October, Bluewater Productions will release a comic book featuring tech industry leaders Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Sergey Brin, Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg and Jack Dorsey.

The comic will be sold for $3.99.

This year, Sandberg was named No. 10 on Fortune’s Most Powerful Women list.
