Brittney Griner’s Story Is Officially Comic Material
We have followed Brittney Griner's career from being born and raised in Houston. Attending Nimitz High School before winning a national championship at Baylor. Were you one of the many residents throughout Killeen-Temple, Texas to see her play?
Now, TidalWave Comics based in Portland, Oregon has adapted her story into a comic biography. The title is Female Force: Brittney Griner. You can find the story in both paper back and hard cover on Amazon. It is also available in Kindle version.
The list of accomplishments are pretty stellar in basketball history. Griner recording the most blocks in NCAA history for a single season her freshman year, then went on to rack up the career record too. 748 total blocks is the most all time for any gender to play in the NCAA.
After college, and being selected number 1 overall in the WNBA draft, she won the WNBA title in just her second season. She was the only college player picked for the 2012 Women's Olympic team, but had to withdraw for personal reasons.
Oh, don't worry, she still appeared on the next two women's teams, and has 2 Olympic Gold Medals from the 2016 and 2020 (Played in 2021) games.
Lately though, her name is mostly mentioned in response to her detainment in Russia. Griner was held in a jail cell for almost 10 months. Professional athletes deal with being traded all the time across many sports, however Griner was traded for another prisoner to regain her freedom.
