Making a mockery of the US presidential election process (#1-#6)

Citizen Jack #1 - Sam Humphries, Tommy Patterson

This is a review of issues #1 - #6

 

A interesting dig at the American presidential election process, this comic collection depicts a small-town Minnesotan snowblower salesman join the presidential race, backed by a demon. His anti-government/establishment rantings (see Trump) gain him popularity among the ignorant electorate and real policies take a back seat. This is a good satire about manipulating the public in elections and is particularly appropriate to the US electoral process where vast amounts of money are invested in candidates (a bit of a waste in my opinion).

 

Entertaining and thought-provoking – worth a look with clear illustrations.
