Someone call the superheroes because there are two new comic book villains in town!

If you couldn’t get enough Tiger King and want to know more about the rivalry between Joseph Maldonado Passage aka Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, you’re going to have the grab the brand new biography comic book.

The 24-page flipbook titled “Infamous: Tiger King,” was released on Wednesday by TidalWave Productions and written by Michael Frizell and drawn by Joe Paradise.

It’s based on the largely streamed Netflix documentary series that debuted in mid-March. 

The press release describes the comic book as the “origin story” of the “stranger than fiction” feud between Joe, the flamboyant, gay zookeeper and former country star, and Carole, his arch-nemesis and owner of Big Cat Rescue. Joe is currently in jail for the attempted murder-for-hire of Carole. A judge recently gave Baskin control of Joe’s zoo.

The missing person’s case against Carole’s late husband, Don Lewis, is being revisited after Joe claimed she killed him in 1997 and fed him to tigers.

Rightfully, the comic “book will also include a page about the treatment of animals from written by PETA Foundation Director of Captive Animal Law Enforcement Brittany Peet, who was also in the Netflix documentary.”

“This is one of the first times since we left Diamond almost a decade ago to have fun with comic book retailers.  If they bought a certain amount of comic books, we gave them a variant for Free.” said Publisher Darren G. Davis.  “Putting this book together with Joe and Michael might be one of the best times I have had in comic books in over 20 years”.

Print copies of the comic are available on Amazon and through various comic book retailers. 

The digital version can be purchased on iTunes, Kindle, Nook, ComiXology, Kobo and wherever e-books are sold. There are 14 variant covers for the comic, so be sure to snag the one you like best!
