About the Book:
Cartoonist R. Sikoryak (Terms & Conditions, Masterpiece Comics) draws upon the power of comics and satire to frame President Trump and his controversial declarations as the words and actions of the most notable villains and antagonists in comic book history. Reimagining the most famous comic covers, Sikoryak transforms Wonder Woman into Nasty Woman; Uncle Scrooge into Trump withholding his tax returns; the Black Panther into the Black Voter; the Fantastic Four into the Hombres Fantasticos; and more. Word for word, page by page, Sikoryak drives home the absurdity and the breadth of claims made by the 45th President of the United States.
The Unquotable Trump is the hugest comic, truly a great comic. And this will be a big league event—not to be missed!
25% of net proceeds from The Unquotable Trump will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union.
