    Whoopi Goldberg’s Comic Book “The Change” Celebrates Menopause as a Superpower

    Whoopi Goldberg, the iconic actress and co-host of “The View,” has taken a unique approach to addressing menopause in her latest project. In her new comic book, “The Change,” Goldberg introduces readers to Isabel Frost, a Black woman who discovers her inner strength and superpowers through embracing menopause.

    Goldberg shared on “The View” that she began experiencing menopause 25 years ago and felt inspired to create a superhero character that reflected her own journey. Isabel Frost is not your typical superhero with a perfect physique, but rather a relatable and funny character who represents the power of aging gracefully.

    The comic book, co-written with screenwriter Jaime Paglia and illustrated by Sunkanmi Akinboye, is now available for purchase. Goldberg explained that she wanted to play the role of Isabel herself, but realized she had “aged out,” prompting her to share the character with the world.

    In addition to “The Change,” Goldberg recently released a memoir titled “Bits and Pieces: My Mother, My Brother, and Me,” which delves into her close relationships with her late mother and brother. Through her creative projects, Goldberg aims to inspire others to embrace their true selves and find strength in their unique journeys.

    With “The Change,” Goldberg challenges the negative stigma surrounding menopause and celebrates the power and resilience that come with embracing this natural stage of life. As she continues to share her personal experiences and stories with the world, Goldberg encourages readers to embrace their own superpowers and live authentically.
