Mueller Report Being Turned Into Two Graphic Novels, Both Contain Artwork as Childish as the Concept

Published

on

Sneak previews of two upcoming graphic novels based on the Mueller report both reveal artwork as childish as the concept.

Barbara Slate’s upcoming project is titled the “Mueller Report Graphic Novel.” The 72-year-old cartoonist’s work will soon be released in two print volumes, but the previews that have been released will likely leave much to be desired even from the most ardent Trump critics.

The page she has posted features the Russian Internet Research Agency recruiting unsuspecting citizens to criticize Clinton’s record as the Secretary of State.

“It is imperative to intensify criticizing Hillary!” one ‘Make America Great Again‘ capped character tells the others. “How about she’s an alien?” one character suggests. The cheese factor continues as she writes about the IRA recruiting individuals to walk around New York City in Trump masks and Santa hats.

The comic appears to be lacking comedy, imagination and fun. All of the ingredients that make graphic novels great. When someone picks up a graphic novel it is usually because they want to be entertained — and this comic definitely fails to deliver.

Slate isn’t the only one racing to try and turn the report into a graphic novel.

Cartoonist Shannon Wheeler and journalist Steve Duin are also illustrating the 448-page report. They, like Slate, went with the ultra-imaginative title of “The Mueller Report Graphic Novel.”

Their 208 page comic is scheduled to be released in April 2020.

“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!” a press release from IDW Publishing states.

The press release says that the comic will be done in “classic private detective yarns, complete with a villain’s rogues’ gallery, nail-biting cliffhangers, and a lone lawman standing proud against the wave of crime.”

The publisher couldn’t even make their plea for coverage interesting. It asserts that “You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You may Tweet in anger. But most importantly, you will be reading the report for yourself!”

“It’s the Mueller Report… with pictures… and funny,” explained Wheeler.

It seems as though the “Resist” movement has managed to suck all the joy out of their lives in the process of fighting for the president’s impeachment and it shows in their dreary comics.

Woman Paints Over Black Lives Matter Mural in NYC, Shouts ‘Bill de Blasio Doesn’t Care About Black People!’

De Blasio is planning to paint four more of the ridiculous murals throughout the city.

The state-sanctioned Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower in New York City has been vandalized by a protester for the third time since it was painted.

A black woman covered multiple letters of the bright yellow eyesore with multiple gallons of black paint while shouting “Refund the Police” and “Bill de Blasio doesn’t care about black people!”

The woman urged people to find Jesus while she worked, attempting to cover as much as she could before being detained and arrested.

The mural was also vandalized the previous day by four protesters who oppose the Marxist political message painted in the street by the mayor. The brave activists shouted “Blue Lives Matter” and “All Lives Matter” as they painted over the city-approved vandalism.

Onlookers shouted at them hysterically as they did it.

NBC New York reports “the alleged vandals threw the paint in what appeared to be a coordinated effort involving about 10 people around 4 p.m. Friday. There were plans going around on social media with a group of people discussing doing the stunt.”

On Monday, the mural was splattered with red paint.

Unlike the rioters and looters that took over his city recently, he has made it a priority to arrest those who dare to vandalize it. In fact, Mayor de Blasio has seemingly been more concerned with protecting the tacky painting than about the rising crime in the city since he tied the hands of his police force.

De Blasio is planning to paint four more of the ridiculous murals throughout the city.

War on Christianity: Virgin Mary Statue Honoring WWII Servicemen Lit on Fire in Massachusetts

Imagine if this was happening to any other religion.

Following three churches being lit ablaze across the US over the weekend, a statue of the Virgin Mary honoring fallen WWII soldiers has been lit on fire in Massachusetts.

The statue at St. Peter Parish in Dorchester was found charred around 10 p.m. Saturday.

“Fire investigators say it appears someone set fire to plastic flowers that were in the hands of the statue, which caused the face and upper body of the statue to be burned,” NBC Boston reports. “The charred statue startled parishioners on Sunday, with one man saying he was ‘very disturbed’ by the incident.”

“This is ridiculous,” a woman added. “This needs to stop.”

St. Peter Parish’s Pastor Currie said he would like to help the person who did this and believes that they are a “troubled soul.”

“This is obviously someone disturbed, someone who has a lot of trouble, a troubled soul,” he said. “But I know our Lady in Heaven is looking down on the soul, or whoever it might’ve been, and saying, ‘I love you! If you need help, come get help. We’re here for you.'”

The Boston Police are asking anyone with information on the incident to contact them at 617-343-4335.

Over the weekend, three churches were burned across the nation.

A fire destroyed Faith Tabernacle Pentecostal Church in Elkmont, Alabama Friday night.

On Saturday a man drove into a church in Ocala, Florida, before lighting it on fire.

Next, a fire destroyed the roof of 249-Year-Old San Gabriel Mission Church in California.

Had these been places of worship for any other religion, it would have been leading the news cycle for at least a week.

Communist Hammer and Sickle Painted on North Carolina WWII Memorial

The names on the memorial “are veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.”

The Communist hammer and sickle symbol was spray painted on a North Carolina World War II Memorial over the weekend.

The memorial in the Evergreen Cemetery in Charlotte honors over 500 people from the county who died in the war.

The vandals also wrote “Glory to the day of heroism June 19, 1986,” a likely reference to the violent Communist Party of Peru.

“On June 18, 1986, the Shining Path began to protest the Peruvian government’s use of torture on its members and their movement to different prisons,” the Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported when another statue was vandalized with the same message in May. “Although the Peruvian government at first tried to negotiate with the Shining Path, the members refused, he said, and the government sent troops into the prisons the next day — bombing two facilities and executing inmates who were in the Shining Path.”

Over 200 people were killed.

“That day immediately began to be called ‘The Day of Heroism.’”

Fox News reports that a portion of the WWII monument that read, “Dedicated to the memory of the Mecklenburg heroes of World War II who made the supreme sacrifice that you might live in liberty, freedom and peace,” was also covered in yellow paint.

Air Force veteran Wayne White gathered friends to help clean the memorial after seeing that it was defaced on social media. He told Fox 17 that the names on the memorial “are veterans and deserve the honor, respect, and dignity.”
