ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - U.S. Sen. Al Franken is stepping into the pages of a new comic book.

A biographical comic called "Political Power: Al Franken" goes on sale on Wednesday.

It's the latest in a line of comic books featuring politicians from Ronald Reagan to Barack Obama.

The Minnesota Democrat is a former "Saturday Night Live" star who won his seat from Republican Norm Coleman last year in a contest that dragged eight months past the election.

The 32-page comic book from Bluewater Productions of Vancouver, Wash., explores Franken's career and his election.

The cover features a portrait of Franken standing before the American flag and a Minnesota flag.
