Duke Nukem’s Voice Says No to Republican Campaigns

Duke-Nukem-3DA top Republican Presidential campaign wanted Jon St. John to do some voice over work for them. Why do we care and why are we reporting it?

You might know St. John as the voice of the popular video game character Duke Nukem, one that’s known for his humorous quips.

Writing on Facebook, St. John said:

I don’t like to turn down jobs…especially when it’s a national ad campaign that pays pretty well. But I have a conscience and could not accept a gig to be the advertising voice of the Republican party’s leading candidate for president. Thanks for the kind offer, but I will sleep just fine at night knowing I made a choice I can live with. Meanwhile I’m happy to be recording a new video game today

Asked by The Verge to clarify which candidate it was, St. John said

I should have written ‘a leading GOP candidate for president’. It might have been Trump or Cruz. Either way, I would not have done it.

Trump? Cruz? Rubio’s team did list comics as an interest. Who do you have as the candidate?

Duke Nukem Tears into Comics

Official Press Release

Duke Nukem Tears into Comics

First comic series for baddest good guy ever starts in July

[Duke Nukem #1 Cover]San Diego, CA (April 26, 2011) – IDW Publishing and Gearbox have joined forces to bring “The King” to comics for the very first time, in DUKE NUKEM: GLORIOUS BASTARD. An integral part of the massive Duke Nukem relaunch happening in June with the long-awaited release of the Duke Nukem Forever video game, this four-issue series will kick off in July and bring all the awesome battles and babes (and beers!) that Duke fans have wanted for more than a decade. Rising comics and video game writer Tom Waltz (Silent Hill: Past Life, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime) pens DUKE NUKEM: GLORIOUS BASTARD, while artist Xermanico fills every panel with non-stop fun and action. Waltz and Xermanico are also the brains and brawn behind the special Duke Nukem Forever one-shot pack-in comic, which is featured in the Duke Nukem Forever: Balls of Steel special edition game boxset.

“I know plenty of fans have been asking for it and we’re excited to finally bring it to ‘em,” said David Eddings, Vice President of Business Development at Gearbox Software.  “Duke will be in some of the most insane action-packed stories that will show fans a whole new side of the one and only King. That’s the marketing-speak for saying it’s gonna f&#king rock!”

Debuting in July with issue #1, DUKE NUKEM: GLORIOUS BASTARD combines time-traveling Nazi UFOs, space pigs, and a hot French Resistance babe code-named the “French Tickler,” as they all run head-on into Duke Nukem. It’s an action-packed and mayhem-filled collision course in the making, and for some of them (the ones that don’t look good in bikinis, that is), it’s gonna end painfully.

“Duke Nukem is the kind of character that comic books were made for,” said Waltz. “He’s over-the-top, bombastic, rude, crude, and doesn’t have a politically correct bone in his muscle-bound body—I love him! Xermanico and I had an absolute (and literal) blast writing and drawing the pack-in comic for the video game, and it’s been no different with this new mini-series. Get ready for fun because, when it comes to The King, the only rule is that there are NO rules!”

In addition to an inspirational movie poster-like regular cover, DUKE fans can ask their local comic store about a variant Duke Nukem Forever concept-art team cover and the awesomely over-the-top foil-stamped, glow-in-the-dark, embossed cover by John K. Snyder III.

DUKE NUKEM: GLORIOUS BASTARD #1 ($3.99, 32 pages, full color) will be available in stores in July. Diamond order code MAY11 0328.
