Frizzell said production of the comic began last year before Griner’s legal troubles in Russia. “My first approach was to explore her story to show her growth as an athlete and person,” he said in a news release. “Although I didn’t know much about the WNBA before starting the research, I found Brittney’s story interesting. I hope readers walk away with an understanding of the person behind the headlines.”

Darren Davis, publisher of Tidal Wave Productions, said in a statement that the story is “about an athlete who faced obstacles to becoming a significant player in the WNBA — not about politics. We started working on this story four years ago as we’ve featured a number of male athletes in the past to change the line.”

The comic also depicts Griner’s struggle to be different from her peers, showing the 6-foot-9 athlete towering over other students at Houston’s Nimitz High School. Bullies call her a “huge, volatile freak” and a “dude.” Even Greener, who encouraged her to be true to herself, is seen coming out to her mother. “Her growth as an athlete and her struggle to come to terms with being a gay black woman are the focus of this issue, first at religious colleges and then in the national spotlight,” Davis said.

Every time I say it, I feel so much better.”
