The life of comedic actress Betty White is being celebrated in a new biographical comic book.

White, who would have turned 100 on Jan. 17, capped a career of more than 80 years by becoming America’s geriatric sweetheart. She died on Friday in her sleep at her home, according to her agent.

From her early days in television to her iconic role on “The Golden Girls” and her social media fame, the 30-page comic by TidalWave Productions traces her Hollywood journey. The book will be available both digitally and in print and can be found on multiple platforms such as Amazon.com.

TidalWave Productions has previously released biographies on celebrities including Carrie Fisher, Lucille Ball, David Bowie and Elizabeth Taylor.

She won another Emmy in 1986 for “The Golden Girls,” a sitcom about four older women living together in Miami that featured an age demographic rarely highlighted on American television. White also was nominated for an Emmy six other times for her portrayal of the widowed Rose Nylund, a sweet, naive and ditzy Midwesterner, on the show, which ran from 1985 to 1992 and was one of the top-rated series of its time.

White, who had no children, worked for animal causes. She once turned down a role in the Jack Nicholson hit movie “As Good as It Gets” because of a scene in which a dog was thrown in a garbage chute. JB
