Just when you think you've seen the last of Rosie O'Donnell, another pop culture reference will jump out and grab you. This time queer-owned graphic novel company Bluewater Productions, will feature O'Donnell in a 32 page comic called femaleforce_rosie.jpgFemale Force: Rosie O'Donnell.

Written by Dan Rafter and drawn by Kristopher Smith, Female Force: Rosie O'Donnell charts the controversies, feuds and successes of O'Donnell's life. Fans can read about O'Donnell's spats with fellow The View celebrity Elisabeth Hasselbeck and entrepreneur Donald Trump, her time as editor of Rosie Magazine, her successful daytime TV talk show and all the activism work she does.

The comic also covers O'Donnell's efforts to ensure that gay and lesbian couples can adopt children, and details the work that O'Donnell put in to end a ban on such adoptions in Florida.

"Our Female Force comics feature on women who have made a difference," Davis said. "For the work that she's done promoting gay and lesbian rights, and especially for her efforts to ensure that gay and lesbian couples can adopt, O'Donnell deserves to be honored. It doesn't hurt, either, that she's an accomplished comic, actress and talk-show host."

You can find some scenes from the comic after the jump. You can order your own copy for $3.99 - less than the price of a Koosh ball.

There's a lot of Ellen hate in that comic. I didn't know Rosie was so jealous, but it's esp. weird when she implies that everyone just applauded ellen for coming out and then moved on and her career just improved.

Is it just me, or is the artwork a bit...creepy and overdone?

Although, I'll admit my comic book aesthetic tends to be old-fashioned - I liked it when comic books cheerfully drew their characters *as* comic book characters. I mean, who needs to actually believe that Superman and Batman are for real? Or that anyone represented in a comic book needs to look exactly the way they would in real life? Nowadays, comic books look more like illustrated anatomy text books.

I may be in the minority here, so I'll shuffle off quietly now...

And that tom cruise head... don't you want to print that out and make a halloween mask out of it? SCARY!!!

Haha, yes.
Interesting double-jab there, too, in "...for obvious reasons."
And she looks nothing like herself either...The cover image is accurate, but the rest?
