Anyone with a pulse and a Twitter account knows that politics has become all-consuming. Last week's elections only underscored the divisive nature of the political arena. Pop culture is no different, as anyone who reads Mad Magazine or watches Saturday Night Live or any of the increasingly politicized late-night talk shows knows. But a new graphic novel is aiming to take political satire to a whole new level.
UnPresidential, from co-writers Kevin Bieber and Victor Reynolds and artist Jeremy Labib, tells the story of how North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un wins an election to become ... president of the United States.
Yep, you read that right.
The graphic novel, from publisher Man vs. Rock, debuts November 21 and promises to cross the aisle for a bipartisan slam against all political parties. From President Trump to Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz to Chris Christie and even U2 frontman Bono, no one is safe from UnPresidential's twisted take on the modern political landscape.
Here's the blurb from the publisher about the book: "In UnPresidential, President Trump has mysteriously disappeared between tweets. The United States must hold a special election to replace him, but Americans are sick and tired of the crooked, low-energy candidates churned out by the right and left. Due to a little-known loophole in the U.S. Constitution, a surprising candidate emerges to take America by storm … a man of action who comes from a family of strong leaders and isn’t afraid to push the button. Enter: Kim Jong Un."
