I received this press release in my inbox this morning and thought I would share it with you all. I will let the release and pic speak for themselves but I just wanted to add that I find this announcement to be quite amusing (not to mention timely) since it’s coming right off the heels of Marvel’s recent public teabagging.
For Immediate Release:
BOOM! Town announces REPUGLICANS with art by Pete Von Sholly and wry commentary by Steve Tatham!
February 15th, 2010 – BOOM! Town, a new imprint of BOOM! Studios, announced today a book of monstrous hilarity, REPUGLICANS!
If you’re a card-carrying Republican, stop reading now. If not, you must get this book. Pete Von Sholly and Steve Tatham bring you a completely unfair and not balanced take on Republican Party leaders and apparatchiks. Sarah Palin, John McCain, Glenn Beck and others all unveiled as vampires, freaks, and zombies. These guys put the UGLI in REPUGLICANS.
“This book shows the true face of the right, and it’s not pretty.” says Pete Von Sholly.
“You’ll cringe when you see these creatures of the right!” says Steve Tatham
REPUGLICANS comes in a 6” x 9” softcover format, with 128 Pages, priced at $14.99. The Diamond Code for this item is FEB100764.
