It's a new 32-page comic book entitled "Political Power:  Hillary Rodham Clinton". It tells of the behind-the-scenes machinations in Clinton's 2008 presidential run against then-Senator Barack Obama, through his nomination of her as Secretary of State.  It's a sequel to an earlier comic book about Clinton's early life.

This unauthorized full color comic book reads more like a soap opera than a comic book. It's full of down-and-dirty details about two of the most powerful and controversial political figures of our time: Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

Writer Jerome Maida says it's a fascinating story that digs into how her decision not to run in 2004 helped make Barack Obama a star and how their battle for the Democratic Presidential nomination was so personal Clinton almost rejected the job of Secretary of State, because she saw it as a consolation prize.

Clinton's story could become a trilogy.  Maida says if this book sells well, and he thinks it will, he would love to do a third book about Clinton's decisions as Secretary of State.

Bill Clinton is also featured prominently in the book. In one frame, the former president is shown surrounded by three scantily clad women on a big private jet his aides referred to as "Air F**k One."

Bill Clinton's office has not responded to requests for comment about the book.
