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.

    HaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHaHa! This i wanna get!

  2. What a load of shit. Totally disrespectful. I find this absolutely disgraceful. I get enough politics in the real world I don’t want them in my fucking comic books.

    • It’s not a comic though. It’s an art book. Little bit of a difference.


      • Still its an immature move. Why can’t we just respect each other, regardless if we’re democrat or republican? I understand this is supposed to be a joke, but its not sitting well with me.

        • Does seeing those ignorant fucking lunatics drawing a Hitler mustache on photos of our president and thinking it’s cute sit well with you?


          • Not really. I may not agree with Obama, but I respect the guy.

            Does people comparing George Bush to Hitler sit well with you?

            • Morlock50 says:

              Neither case sits well with me. But it’s been a long time since people have given the office of the presidency the respect it deserves.

            • No it doesn’t. But I’ll tell you one thing, you are a better person than I because I didn’t respect Bush at all. That guy set this country back decades and all of the people who are currently thrashing Obama (and now Captain America of all things) want to keep us there.


              • Morlock50 says:

                Some of us voted for Obama (raises hand) and are currently disappointed with his administration. We’re not trying to set the country back; but we would like our budgets balanced, our taxes lowered, and our enemies defeated.

                • Locusmortis says:

                  If the internet had existed during Roosevelts presidency he would have been hounded out of office by 1936 as the new deal hadn’t had turned the corner by then.

                  Obama has only had control for just over a year, for anyone to think that he or his administration could turn around the phenomenal mess that the US economy was in in such a short time is fairy tale stuff. These things take time, miracles do not happen.

                  The stuff I see on fox news and the blogosphere just dosen’t equate to what I experienced when I was in america, there wasn’t that level of venom and hatred that some people seem to direct towards Obama, it just seems pretty bizarre.

                  • Morlock50 says:

                    The things being said about Bush were pretty crazy and hateful as well. Also part of my disappointment comes from the proposed solutions to the problems; I knew that those problems would not be fixed right away. It’s the lack of focus that bothers me.

                    • Locusmortis says:

                      Yeah, but Bush led America into a war to stop “weapons of mass distruction that didn’t exist” costing the lives of thousands of American and British soldiers and Iraqi civilians and managed to ruin the economy as well.

                      Obama hasn’t done anything nearly as stupid as those yet.

                    • Morlock50 says:

                      Give him time Locus.

                    • “Give him time Locus.”

                      It’s THAT kind of thinking that doesn’t do anybody any good. Waiting in anticipation for the president to fuck up (when he may very well not) just so you can give him shit and say “See, I was right” is not helping this country AT All and only solidifies the fact the certain people WANT him to FAIL.

                      Didn’t you say “it’s been a long time since people have given the office of the presidency the respect it deserves.”? Correct me if I’m wrong but hoping that he fails doesn’t seem very respectful, does it?


                    • Morlock50 says:

                      I wouldn’t say that I’m hoping he fails, because if he fails then that means the country fails, which is not what I want at all. I would say that I’m pessimistic about his chances of success, given the way he seems to go about solving our nation’s problems. Focusing on a health care overhaul when unemployment is so high in this country would be one example. Insisting that the Khalid Sheikh Mohammed trial take place in NYC, instead of a military tribunal where it belongs, would be another.

  3. Pobra says:

    That looks awesome. I want.

  4. Morlock50 says:

    Only one appropriate response to this:

    MITT ROMNEY 2012!!!!

  5. Ironmuskrat says:

    I like my political humor with a bit of nuisance myself. I personally think if you can get someone who’s viewpoints are different from you to laugh a little at themselves, they might just lighten up a little and start to think about the absurdity of their positions. Even if they don’t agree with you, hopefully they will at least listen to your side of things and discuss them rationally with you.

    For instance…

  6. hackslash2020 says:

    My first message on one of my favourite websites and shows on youtube.
    And its a political one.. damn..i’ll make it my last thats for sure.

    The problem with a democracy is,
    that the voted parties are more concerned about their votes/parties
    then about their country/people.

    Am I right?

  7. phil says:

    Ya know, Democraps and Independunces are not gonna be far behind 🙂

  8. Deemar says:

    As much as I loath the Republican party in general let alone Sarah Palin and her Teabag friends, this is kinda crass.

    It’s sinking too those twats level

  9. Deemar says:

    It’s a bad move on Boom’s part, just make good comics.

    • MicahSkin says:

      And seriously. Making fun of her is like making fun of the alcoholic quadriplegic whore. Just gets easier and easier.

      And as for the “person” who thinks ol Mitt is a good idea, you DON’T wanna go down that road…

      • Morlock50 says:

        Why not? It’s just my opinion. And I was just responding to the OP. I’m perfectly happy to talk about comic books, but if some of you want to bring up politics, don’t be shocked if someone here responds with an alternate viewpoint. Like I said before, CCW fans are a group with diverse viewpoints. Not everyone thinks the same or votes the same. I voted for Obama in the last election, for example. Won’t make that mistake again.

        BTW, I notice you putting quotes around the word “person”. What am I, subhuman? Wouldn’t do that to you, dude.

      • Deemar says:

        Palin is a non-entity.

  10. Antonio says:

    I’m still waiting for the radical implementation of Keynesian economics from last February to improve the country in any way,shape or form.

  11. Deemar says:

    I really…really…hate talking politics, it only makes me dislike someone I might have gotten along with prior.

    I’d rather not know anybody’s personal politics.

    • Antonio says:

      Then learn to be tolerant about opposing political views.

      That’s all we hear from leftists right? tolerance,tolerance,tolerance.

      But the those statemenst become hypocritical when you put someone down based on how they think economically(either Classics or Keynesians or whatever)

      Frankly it’s rubbish and childish.

      If you only befriend people based on their political beliefs then it’s time to grow up.

      • Deemar says:

        I see your point, but I’m former military, black and a southerner. So I’ve pretty much had to make peace with opposing political views for years and kept friendships.

        • You are a better man than most Deemar.


          • Deemar says:

            Well the way I see it, I’ve served with Jewish, Catholic, White, Asian,latino hell even Samoan soldiers some liberal other conservative and at the end of the day if I can have a few beers with ya’ some good laughs and have sex with your sister (Kidding, or am I?)

            I don’t need too know your political hang ups, I think the fact I’m multi-cultural (Afro-Dominican/Catholic father, Black southern baptist mother) I’ve spent my life in dual roles and cultures.

            As long as whomever I’m dealing with respect certain boundries and I respect theirs (I.E. don’t call me nigger and I won’t call you cracka.) we good.

        • Morlock50 says:

          I’d like to say thank you for your service to our country.

      • Deemar says:

        I see I knew wouldn’t like you

      • “If you only befriend people based on their political beliefs then it’s time to grow up.”

        Sorry mate but that is just is not true in my opinion. I have chosen NOT to date people who have had opposite political views and I think that was a very MATURE decision to make. It’s childish to think that those things don’t matter in the real world. To each his own.

        This will be the LAST fucking time I bring up ANYTHING political on this blog.


        • Deemar says:


          We don’t need the drama

          Plus we libs hold the sanity banner in this relationship. 😉

        • Morlock50 says:

          You chose politcial convicitions over sex? What if the chick looked like Megan Fox?

          • Pobra says:

            Sarah Palin is kinda hot (in a scary, machine gun wielding sort of way), but I wouldn’t touch that succubus with a ten foot bayonet.

            Man, a lot of drama on the boards lately, what’s happened to our peaceful little refuge of internet sanity? And that’s not directed at you Morlock, even though you appear to be a republican, differing opinions make life more interesting… and stressful 🙂

            And Deemar, I hear you about not wanting to know people’s political beliefs, it can be very strenuous on a relationship. I have very conservative co-workers (don’t tell anyone) and when they start with the gay bashing and racial remarks, I have to just walk away.

            • Morlock50 says:

              Well, my wife’s a flaming liberal, so it can be done 🙂
              I’m actually a registered democrat, primarily because I’m pro-choice and pro-gay marriage. I guess I identify more with those “blue dog” dems who are concerned about government spending. But I have to walk away too when someone uses racist or homophobic remarks.

              As far as Sarah Palin goes, if I were single, I would absolutely tap that ass.

              • Pobra says:

                LOL, I wouldn’t do it Morlock, I’m fairly certain that she is the cannibal queen of extinction. You don’t want those bone hooks gnashing at your manhood to the persistent sound of John McCain’s labored breathing as he tries to lick your toes…

                wow, I even creeped myself out with that one… gotta stop reading the Invisibles…

          • He he. Well, since I don’t think Megan Fox is very attractive I wouldn’t have a problem standing by my convictions. Now, if the woman was more like Judy Greer or Felicia Day than I might have some serious thinking to do.

            Seriously though, Yes, I have chosen political convictions over the slight chance of having sex. I know how I am and the bad would just outweigh the good in the long run.


          • Deemar says:

            I’d do her

            She seems like trouble, but I like trouble

        • Antonio says:

          Then it is hypocrisy.

          “Tolerance” is just a smokescreen for seeing it my way or the highway.

          It’s just a road to:

          The French Revolution
          Enviromentalism(out of Nazism)
