Political Version of Classic Comics has Philly Ties

Remember Classic Comics (later Classics Illustrated)?  In the days before graphic novels, Classic Comics provided an illustrated version of classic literature.

StormFront Publishing (formerly Bluewater Comics) is producing comic versions of political biographies for presidential candidates.  IDW did something similar in 2008.

StormFront's latest release is a comic biography of Jeb Bush, with a local connection.  It features the art of Philadelphia's Joe Paradise.  The writing is by Missouri State University professor Michael Frizell.

Previous StormFront presidential comics focus on Hilary clinton, Donald Trump, Rand Paul, Chris Cristie, Joe Biden, and the Tea Party.  Biographies of Bernie Sanders, Marco Rubio, Rick Perry, and Ted Cruz will be released this fall.  Other titles will follow.

You can order them online at the Comic Flea Market or touch base with your local comic shop.  If they don't have it they can probably get it for you.  While you're there check out Lumberjanes -- my latest new favorite comic.
