This is not specifically a Hulk thing and it is not my intention to ruffle any political feathers. But I felt I just had to make mention of this political parody comic.
I give you ‘The Tremendous Trump’ one-shot issue. Released October 11, 2017. For obvious reasons I think it can be seen why I wanted to feature this in a Hulk blog. To be quite frank this comic is not that funny, the story is flimsy and the art is random.
That being said it did give me a couple of chuckles. Mostly I just liked the homage cover and the blatant Hulk references throughout.
Despite your opinions on the current POTUS this comic does capture a certain point of view. I have always found political cartoons fascinating for their ability, in most cases, to capture the feelings of the public. I think this comic at least does that by incorporating some current perceptions on the media, social issues and political happenings.
Its almost like a time capsule of all the craziness going on nowadays. And whether you agree or not with it’s views you have to admit it is a perception going around.
A similar item came out awhile ago (from the same publisher actually) and I regret not buying it when I saw it. The item was a Trump vs Clinton adult coloring book which included a flip cover of Trump and Clinton fighting as Hulk and Wolverine from Incredible Hulk #181. It’s currently being sold on eBay around $40-90. So it obviously caught enough people’s attention.
So if you enjoy political satire or just like homage covers this comic may just be for you. Currently its in comic stores for about $5.00. And it might look good on the shelf next to Trump’s book ‘The Art of the Deal”. 🙂
