Whoopi Goldberg is taking her talents from daytime TV and expanding them in a whole new way.
The View star makes a name for herself each weekday when she hits the table on the ABC talk show. But as she recently shared on Instagram, the 67-year-old actress is co-writing a new graphic novel called The Change published by Dark Horse Comics, the media company behind The Umbrella Academy books that inspired the hit Netflix series. What's more, folks can now pre-order The Change online ahead of its November 28 release.
"A new kind of hero is coming to Dark Horse Comics courtesy of Whoopi Goldberg, who is co-writing The Change, a graphic novel about an older superhero," read the caption of the Instagram post. Whoopi later added a comment about the project: "I made this for every woman over a certain age who still knows that somewhere inside her is a superhero with a saggy chest and a big behind and who can still kick a--."
When the Ghost actress' followers saw the post, they immediately congratulated her in the comments section.
"I'm not even a comic book fan, but this [piqued] my interest," one person wrote on Instagram. "YES!!! The world needs more older superheroes!!! 😍👏🔥 Gimme a tough as nails granny over yet another reluctant teen any day!!!" a different user replied. "Oh this is going to be good ❤️," another follower agreed.
While Whoopi gave folks a brief overview of The Change online, Dark Horse Comics provided a better clue into the book's premise in an official press release. According to Dark Horse, the graphic novel will center around Isabel Frost, a woman who spent her life dedicated to family. But she also has a love for video games, which she starts to play thanks to her comic book-obsessed grandson and her best friend. As she embraces a new identity online, she learns how it will change her life forever.
Additionally, The Change will be the Sister Act star's first venture into picture books that aren't geared toward children. Whoopi has previously published the kid-friendly Sugar Plum Ballerinas series. The sixth book of the franchise was released this past January.
