The always-cringeworthy Whoopi Goldberg has begun co-writing a graphic novel about a superhero grandmother whose superpowers are activated by menopause. Yes, you read that right.
According to The Daily Wire, Whoopi is writing the book alongside Jaime Paglia, who worked on superhero TV shows “The Flash” and “Eureka.” The book is being published by Dark Horse Comics. Here is how The Daily Wire’s Amanda Harding described the upcoming novel:
“The Change” follows a woman named Isabel Frost who feels stuck in a rut and unhappy with the direction of her life. She has friends, a relationship, and a grandson who loves video games, but she also feels bored with the “stagnant” routine of everyday life. Then, she reaches the age of menopause, which spurs her superhero powers to activate.
“The Change” was announced by the entertainment news website Screen Rant, which gave an insightful look into the rather strange novel that will be released. Screen Rant wrote:
Screen Rant is excited to announce Dark Horse’s upcoming graphic novel, The Change. The book is co-written by Whoopi Goldberg (The Color Purple, Sister Act) and writer/showrunner Jaime Paglia (Eureka, The Flash). Illustrating is Sunkanmi Akinboye (Windmaker, E.X.O.: The Legend of Wale Williams) with Alexandria Batchelor on colors and Frank Cvetkovic providing lettering. Artist Khary Randolph provides The Change’s cover art. The story centers around Isabel Frost, a wife, mother, and grandmother who feels that life isn’t what she thought it’d be. Even though she’s got an amazing support network of family and fellow gamers, things have become stagnant for Isabel. But as her body adjusts to menopause, Isabel finds herself developing powerful abilities. With the assistance of her best friend and her comic book-loving grandson, Isabel decides to embrace the new direction of her life and become the Change.
This isn’t the first time that Whoopi has made news readers take a second look to ensure they are reading the words correctly. Recently, she supported the idea of denigrating white kids to make them “feel bad.” Here is what she had to say on that matter:
“Think about this: if you’re so concerned that your children — and particularly I’m talking about white children because that’s the conversation that they seem to be having — if you’re so concerned that white children are going to feel bad because history happened and they happen to be white, how do you think black kids are feeling? The reason that black history has come into the zeitgeist, the reason that Asian history has come into the zeitgeist, the reason that any other history than English-American history is because nobody was represented.”
“That’s why this history is coming, and the great thing about America has always been, yeah, we know we step in it, but we try to step back from it,”
Whoopis is not shy about being in the headlines for saying some outrageous stuff, but this new book may be at the top of the list.
