By Maryann Yin Comment

New York Times journalist Maureen Dowd stars in the new comic, The Incredibly Fantastic Adventures of Maureen Dowd (A Work of Satire & Fiction). In the book, Dowd sports lingerie and wears a gun in her stocking.

Gawker has more about the comic: “Marra’s comic book dramatizes our flame-haired heroine’s role in the 2003 Valerie Plame affair. MoDo discusses journalist ethics, gets in Blackberry screaming matches, defies gun-wielding intruders who want to steal her laptop and hush up her columns and flirts with Tom Friedman en route to a date with George Clooney.”

Comic creator Benjamin Marra wrote and illustrated the comic. It features 24 black and white interior pages and sells for $3.
