This is one of those things that is interesting enough for me to mention it, but I’m not sure if I can actually imagine anyone buying it. Either way, IDW has just announced that they’ll be releasing a graphic novel adaptation of the Mueller Report into Russian interference in the 2018 US Presidential Election. The comic is set to be illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler and veteran journalist Steve Duin. Check out the release and full details below:
SAN DIEGO, CA (June 21, 2019) – It’s the greatest WHODUNIT of our time… or a new low for “Presidential Harassment!”
Shannon Wheeler, Eisner Award-winning New Yorker cartoonist (Too Much Coffee Man, Sh*t My President Says, God is Disappointed in You), and veteran journalist Steve Duin (The Oregonian, Comics: Between the Panels, Oil and Water) turn their critical eye on the Mueller Report – a comprehensive, understandable, and readable graphic novel version of the book every patriot needs.
Fight the spin spewing forth from both parties and political pulpits and check out this graphic novel that brings a 400-page legal document down to size. Wheeler and Duin, in graphic form, bring to life scenes detailed in the report: from the infamous Trump Tower Meeting of 2016 to Trump exclaiming “I’m f*cked” upon finding out he was the subject of investigation. It’s in the report and it’s in the graphic novel!
The Mueller Report: Graphic Novel borrows style from classic private detective yarns, complete with a villain’s rogues’ gallery, nail-biting cliffhangers, and a lone lawman standing proud against the wave of crime.
“Shannon and Steve have done an incredible job taking the rotten ingredients catalogued by Robert Mueller and turning them into a delicious satirical feast,” says the book’s editor, JustinEisinger. “It’s funny. It’s maddening. But it’s a great resource for anyone that wants to be informed about the findings of the most important law enforcement document created in our lifetime.”
See Trump berate his Attorney General. Watch a petulant Commander-in-Chief lob insults at the White House counsel. Witness the “witch hunt” as it happened, cataloged as only the top lawman in the country could!
This staggering laundry list of questionable contacts, misleading statements, unreported engagements, and possible coordination — enough to stun any student of the U.S. Constitution — is laid bare with a cold, satirical edge.
You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You may Tweet in anger. But most importantly, you will be reading the report for yourself!
“It’s the Mueller Report… with pictures… and funny,” explains Wheeler.
