From Clutch Magazine:

Eartha Kitt was once referred to as “the most exciting woman in the world” by iconic director Orson Welles. From her vast singing and acting career, to being outspoken in the world of politics and publicly ostracized for the anti-war remarks that derailed her career, Kitt’s life was definitely one of intrigue.  Now she’s being immortalized via a comic book.

“Eartha Kitt: Femme Fatale,” written by New York Times bestselling author Marc Shapiro, who also penned the Julie Newmar series,  was released last week.  “This series has been have been so much fun to do,” said Shapiro. “And it is an homage to the kinds of stories that first appeared in the mid-60′s.”

According to the press release:
