It’s like Superman Red and Superman Blue

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Not to be topped by the silliness of the latest MoveOn.org ad, IDW is getting in on the wacky political hijinks, publishing two biographies “in the vein of great biography comics from years past” about the presumptive presidental nominees, John McCain and Barack Obama. And what biography comics are they talking about? Why, St. Francis of Assisi and Pope John Paul II!

From religion to politics… I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

They’re due in October, so we can’t review them just yet, but you can check out the website at presidentalcomics.com and even pre-order the books directly from IDW. They ship in October, and retail for $3.99. Or you can grab the combined flipbook for $7.99.

Come on, you know you want to. J. Scott Campbell does the covers!
