In these times of mash-up mayhem, when publishers are rallying around such titles as The Meowmorphosis, even the most nonsensical literary crossovers fail to surprise. Be that as it may, we were still awestruck to see the art from a newly released comic book called Steampunk Palin, which was announced back in August.
According to the folks at Comics Alliance, who have posted an in-depth review declaring that the book is “so bad it’s good,” it takes place “in the near future, in the immediate aftermath of a war that has destroyed all the Earth’s oil. A new power source is needed, and Sarah Palin steps forward to suggest steam power as a replacement. A conglomerate consisting of big oil and nuclear power interests makes a counterproposal by blowing her up with a bomb at the meeting where she suggests this.” We’re not sure what’s funnier — the idea of Palin as an anti-big business activist or the fact that a third of the book is devoted to Palin pin-ups. Check out some panels from the comic after the jump.
Do Sarah Palin’s boobs triple in size — just like Popeye’s arms — when she puts on the armor?
Why stop at “Muslim”? Surely we can get Glenn Beck on board with the “he’s actually a robot” conspiracy theory. Oh, and yes, that’s John McCain on the right.
Um, is that a tongue ring?
