I’m not a big fan of political parody or satire. It’s usually predictable, the jokes are overused and it’s never that funny. Well, at least not in the last decade or two. Old school Saturday Night Live was pretty great when they still had the balls to poke fun at both sides. Also, South Park does a pretty good job as they shit on everyone and everything.
I am a fan of Kelsey Shannon though, so I figured I’d give this a shot. I mean, he wrote the story and did the art and I typically find the guy to be a lot of fun and his art is usually pretty damn solid. Also, you should check out his YouTube channel, as well as The Jack Show, which also features Jon Malin, Cecil Says and Anna a.k.a. That Star Wars Girl.
Now while I haven’t read any of the previous Barack Panther comics, it’s not hard to get the concept and to just pick this up and enjoy it without having had to read the other comics.
This one has a Men In Black twist to it, as Obama and Biden team up, as special agents, to fight an extraterrestrial threat. Surprisingly, but not really, Joe Biden is revealed to be an alien. I guess that explains a lot.
Anyway, while this isn’t typically my cup of tea, I was amused by it and more than anything else, enjoyed Shannon’s art.
Pairs well with: I guess other Barack Panther comics.
