Prez, Volume 1
Prez, Volume 1 | Mark Russell
America s first teenaged president is on the job in this contemporary twist on a DC classic! Oregon teen Beth Ross has just been elected President of the United States of America. Age restrictions were abolished when corporations gained the right to run for office and voting booths have been replaced by Twitter, making just about anyone eligible for the nation s top job, including the viral-video-famous Corndog Girl! Now the eyes of the nation are on Beth. But in a world so out of control that the poor are willing to shoot themselves on TV for a chance at a better life, will even the new president have the power needed to overthrow the nation s true leaders Boss Smiley and his corporate shadow government? Writer Mark Russell ("God Is Disappointed in You") teams with artists Ben Caldwell (JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND) and Mark Morales ("X-Force," "Secret Invasion") to revive and reinvent a classic! Collects PREZ #1-6 and SNEAK PEEK: PREZ #1."

It's insane to me that this feels like real life. Like absurd, yes, but still. Definitely an interesting and horrifying world created here with just the right amount of ridiculous.

This book seems especially relevant in this day and age. Big corporations run the government and all they care about is profit. Good thing Corndog girl is here to turn things around!

Not my thing at all. Definite satire but way too heavy-handed in order to get its point across. It also jumped around so much and moved from idea to idea so quickly, there wasn't time to unpack the points the story was trying to make. It felt disjointed, frenetic, and lacked a tight focus.

I call this a pick only if you are looking for just stupid funny, poking fun at corporate America, and craziness.

#funfridayphoto I reckon aliens would be tickled by this comic like I was. And perhaps they would learn something from it too!

Perfect with cheetos, which with its orange dust is probably something found on other planets

Finishing up this comic while cooking some pasta for tonight's dinner. A lighter version of fettuccine alfredo (no heavy cream) with French beans, mushrooms and bacon 🥓

I made the mistake of reading this while the kindergartener eats his lunch before school. He kept asking, why are you laughing? What's so funny?

CuriousG I love Prez - so unbelievably smart and funny! 2y

A sort of bibimbap with beef, french beans, carrots, bokchoy and egg. And a fascinating comic series about a teenaged president!

I was hesitant about this book given current real-world events, but I thought it was hilarious (even though it does hit a little too close to home right now). While I was thoroughly entertained throughout, these two word bubbles made me laugh out loud because they were so absurd yet so easy to imagine a talking head delivering them.

It's terrifying how possible all of the craziness in this book seems, but I loved Beth's ability to see through everything and take control.

I tend to not read #politicalfiction, but Prez is pretty fab. Wish I had it to read while standing in line to vote. 🤓 #imwithher #nastywoman #photoadaynov16 #electionday

This is the best social commentary I have read in a very long time. Even if you aren't a big comic person, I *highly recommend* checking out vol 1, especially given the wild state of our current political election. Seriously. Go get it from your library. Just try it. You'll be blown away at what the author/artists put in this comic.

RealLifeReading Looks fantastic 3y

Russell is a political commentary machine, every page is either funny or far too real and sad. The future is bleak!
