So, uh, this exists. From the press release: 

Writer and author Arianna Huffington has been a fixture in politics since the 1990s and thanks, to the Huffington Post, she has become an Internet fixture as well. Now Bluewater Comics is telling the story of how a woman from Greece has become one of the most talked about media personalities in the world in “Female Force: Arianna Huffington” due out in Autumn of 2011.

Written by longtime comic book writer Martin Pierro and drawn by artist Nick Justus, the female empowerment comic book series, “Female Force: Arianna Huffington” talks about her time studying in England, her marriage to a congressman, her run as governor of California and how her website was sold to AOL for $315 million.

This has to be an unusually elaborate parody, right?

The next thing you know, someone will do a comic book with illustrations of Maureen Dowd lounging around in skimpy clothing... What? PLEASE MAKE IT STOP.
