The 22-page one-shot, produced by TidalWave Comics, will be released in print and digital editions on April 7 alongside a matching colouring book.
“We believe that it is important for readers to have inspiring role models, to learn about extraordinary individuals that have overcome challenges to make a difference in the world,” TidalWave Comics said in a statement.
The “Female Force” series focuses on women who’ve made an impact around the world both politically and culturally.
The comics usually provide an overview of their subjects’ career or life experiences.
Jill Biden, 69, has been involved in advocating for many causes, including military families, community colleges and women’s education.
The series currently has over 70 entries from popular figures both current and historical, with one edition looking at the cultural impact of DC comics’ Wonder Woman.
The TidalWave productions website states that “Other prominent and influential female authors, business executives, entertainers, journalists, politicians and activists are currently in development.”
The comic book series was created by publisher and writer, Darren G. Davis, who leads the Oregon based TidalWave comics.
