Whoopi Goldberg is expanding her daytime TV talents in a whole new way. The View star makes a name for herself on the ABC talk show every weekday.
However, as she recently announced on Instagram, the 67-year-old actress is co-writing a new graphic novel titled The Change, which will be published by Dark Horse Comics, the publishing company behind The Umbrella Academy books, which inspired the hit Netflix series. Furthermore, The Change is now available for pre-order online ahead of its November 28 release.
“A new kind of hero is coming to Dark Horse Comics courtesy of Whoopi Goldberg, who is co-writing The Change, a graphic novel about an older superhero,” read the caption of the Instagram post.
Whoopi later added a comment about the project: “I made this for every woman over a certain age who still knows that somewhere inside her is a superhero with a saggy chest and a big behind and who can still kick a–.”
When the Ghost actress’s followers saw the post, they congratulated her in the comments section right away.
“I’m not even a comic book fan, but this [piqued] my interest,” one person wrote on Instagram. “YES!!! The world needs older superheroes!!! 😍👏🔥 Gimme a tough-as-nails granny over yet another reluctant teen any day!!!” a different user replied. “Oh this is going to be good ❤️,” another follower agreed.
While Whoopi gave a brief overview of The Change online, Dark Horse Comics provided a more detailed explanation in an official press release. According to Dark Horse, the graphic novel will center on Isabel Frost, a woman who has dedicated her life to her family. But she also enjoys video games, which she began playing thanks to her comic book-obsessed grandson and best friend. As she embraces a new online identity, she finds out how it will change her life forever.
Furthermore, The Change will be the Sister Act star’s first foray into children’s picture books. Whoopi previously published the Sugar Plum Ballerinas series for children. The franchise’s sixth book was released.
