Born in Ottawa on 25 December 1971, Trudeau was sworn in as Canada’s prime minister in 2015.
The new comic book will detail Trudeau’s personal and professional achievements, milestones as well as struggles. It will highlight his role not only as a politician but also as a teacher before he became Canada’s 23rd prime minister.
It also takes a look at the media frenzy around his “camera-ready looks” and “easygoing nature”.
TidalWave Productions has profiled politicians from across the globe for over 11 years. Previous comic books brought out by the publication includes profiles on Barack Obama, Donald Trump, George Bush and Condoleezza Rice.
Eulogy that brought him to limelight
Forty eight-year-old Trudeau first came into the limelight in 2000 when he had delivered an eulogy at a nationally-televised funeral after his father, and former prime minister of Canada, Pierre Trudeau died. His speech was widely praised and had led many to ponder his potential for public office.
The synopsis of the comic book reads: “A voice for the youth and calming presence during troubling times, Justin Trudeau became the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada and a media sensation.”
A special hardcover of the comic book, described by the company as a “non-partisan profile of the political figure”, will also be available.
Trudeau came to power for a second term in the 2019 elections but only with a narrow margin, unlike his landslide victory in 2015.
“To those who did not vote for us, know that we will work every single day for you, we will govern for everyone,” Trudeau had said after the election results.
He had recently made news over alleged nepotism and corruption in the controversial $900 million WE Charity deal.
