As America dives into the terrifying farce of election season, Image Comics has announced Citizen Jack, a brand new horror-comedy for everyone who hates politics. Created by blockbuster writer Sam Humphries and artist Tommy Patterson, Citizen Jack debuts on November 4th, 2015.
Every presidential candidate has a skeleton in the closet—but Jack worships the devil. Citizen Jack tells the story of Jack Northworthy, a scandal-plagued small town politician, who should in no way be president. But he has a secret weapon: Marlinspike, a malevolent demon of high ambitions. Together, they’re running for president in an outrageous campaign that America will never forget.
Humphries and Patterson have enlisted an all-star team including editor Jeanine Shaefer, designer Dylan Todd, with colors by John Alderink, and letters by Rachel Deering.
Humphries feels we’ve all had one of two reactions when it comes to politics, screaming in terror, or laughing to stop the screaming. The series comes from the teams “fright and amusement at our current system.”

Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, October 12th.
