Forget the Avengers, there’s a new superhero in town, James Comey. Nathan Rousseau Smith has all the crime-fighting details.
Depending where you sit along the partisan fault line slicing through the American political scene, James Comey could be either a hero or a villain.
It is perhaps fitting, then, that the former-FBI-director-turned-President-Trump-antagonist has now made a debut in the bubble dialogue and primary-color heroics of the comic world.
“Political Power: James Comey” is a 24-page comic that gives readers the “origin story” of the man Trump recently blasted as an “untruthful slime ball” and “LEAKER & LIAR.” The book, published by TidalWave Comics, was written by Michael Frizell and drawn by Joe Paradise, featuring cover art by Pablo Martinena.
“To put it mildly, Comey’s story is in flux,” Frizell said in a release from the publisher. “For this first book, I thought it best explore what makes the man tick. What motivates him?”
In a way, this makes sense. With his square jaw and righteous talk, Comey could easily be the alter ego of a caped superhero. Think Clark Kent or Bruce Wayne.
