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 villainous rogues’ gallery, nail-biting cliffhangers, and a lone lawman standing proud against the wave of crime.

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.

Now includes new BONUS MATERIAL! Wheeler and Duin take on the Ukrainian Call and the Whistleblower Complaint that ignited the Impeachment!

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You may Tweet in anger. But most importantly, you will be reading the report for yourself!

The Mueller Report

Cut Through the Spin with The Mueller Report Graphic Novel

The Mueller Report Graphic Novel

On March 24, 2019, the White House released a four-page press release presenting its summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller III’s investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 Presidential election. On April 18, 2019, the actual redacted report was finally provided to the public. The difference between these conclusions have led to much debate, and while clearly Mueller’s findings are pivotal to our understanding of modern political history, national security, and American democracy, most Americans have still not read the entire 448-page report to be fully informed on the topic.

In The Mueller Report Graphic Novel, Eisner Award-winning New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler and veteran Oregonian journalist Steve Duin reach for truth against a torrent of political spin to lay bare the findings of Mueller’s investigative team. Wheeler and Duin capture history in ink, providing a clear, concise, and entertaining way for readers to truly understand the conclusions that Mueller recorded during his exhaustive investigation.

Debuting on September 15thThe Mueller Report: Graphic Novel joins a pantheon of political cartooning titles published by IDW and imprint Top Shelf Productions.

Encouraging readers to ignore the interpretations of political parties and cable news pundits, this comprehensive graphic novel brings to life a range of key scenes, beginning with Trump’s campaign and continuing over three years of his administration. The staggering laundry list of Trump’s inner circle’s controversial contacts, statements, and perhaps even coordination — enough to overwhelm any student of the U.S. Constitution — provides a roadmap to understanding events of the past four years.

Comicker Press Announces Shots Fired, a Charity Comics Anthology

Comicker Press logo

Comicker Press is back with Shots Fired, a revamped version of the comics anthology formerly known as Every Day. As with its previous iteration, Shots Fired will raise funds for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and the Community Justice Reform Coalition to help end gun violence in America via a Kickstarter campaign that will pay for printing and shipping of the comics anthology. Once printed, all proceeds from additional book sales will go directly to the CSGV and CJRC.

Comicker Press co-founder Sean E. Williams said,

Since Kickstarter campaigns are all-or-nothing, when it became apparent that our last one wasn’t going to reach its goal, we decided to regroup and try again as quickly as possible. This issue is too important to not do this book, and the stories the creators are telling are truly unparalleled and need to be read.

With the upcoming 28-day campaign for Shots Fired, Comicker Press has capped the size of the book to around 168 pages and is limiting shipping to the United States to keep the budget down. They are also adding a Kickstarter Exclusive limited-edition hardcover, which won’t be made available after the campaign.

The talent donating their time to Shots Fired include Scott Snyder, Kelly Thompson, David Lafuente, Phil Hester, Ariela Kristantina, Jamal Igle, Devin Grayson, Joe Keatinge, Doselle Young, Marguerite Sauvage, Ron Marz, Stuart Moore, Shannon Wheeler, Steven Grant, Roger Langridge, Matt Miner, Ray Fawkes, CW Cooke, Alex de Campi, Carla Speed McNeil, Kelly Williams, Emma Beeby, and more.

The Shots Fired campaign launches on Kickstarter on June 18th, and runs through July 16th.

Eisner Award Winning Digital Comic Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost is Now $1.99

Halloween is over, Thanksgiving hasn’t happened yet, but the holiday season is already upon us! And in keeping with that ever earlier tradition, Eisner Award winning Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost, drops from $6.99 to $1.99 for a limited time on comiXology and Kindle. It’s a great time to read this gorgeously illustrated graphic novel adaptation of Charles Dickens’s beloved classic A Christmas Carol.

In the 1950s, legendary comics creator Harvey Kurtzman had plans to adapt Charles Dickens’s classic story A Christmas Carol into what would become known as a graphic novel. Kurtzman was the creator of MAD magazine, Playboy’s Little Annie Fanny, and TRUMP magazine. The project was never brought to fruition and the pages, thumbnails, and notes that Kurtzman had created remained unfinished. Artist Gideon Kendall and writers Josh O’Neill and Shannon Wheeler– under the supervision of the Kurtzman Estate and book packagers Kitchen, Lind & Associates – teamed up to finish Kurtzman’s dream project for comiXology Originals. Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost adapts and expands upon Kurtzman’s extensive breakdowns and notes to make his long-lost vision a reality.

Earlier this year Harvey Kurtzman’s Marley’s Ghost won “Best Digital Comic” at the prestigious Eisner Award 2018 Ceremony during Comic-Con International San Diego.
