This August, President Donald J. Trump is set to release his first original graphic novel. Sort of.
In “Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets of Donald J. Trump,” Eisner Award-winning artist Shannon Wheeler brings the Twitter emissions of “the 140-character President” to life in his own inimitable cartoon fashion.
In a press release resplendent with Trump-ish praise, publisher IDW announced that Wheeler’s 120-page hardback graphic novel would be coming out in August through its Top Shelf Productions imprint.
The release even takes a stab at imagining how the 45th President would describe his own graphic novel debut: “Some people are saying, I don’t know, you tell me, but a lot of people are saying this is the greatest book of the year. This guy, Shannon Wheeler, he draws these cartoons for the New Yorker, MAD, The Onion — he’s very, very, good, okay? Now he’s illustrated the most incredible tweets. Wow! You won’t believe what he does with these tweets. I mean, these tweets changed the world, folks. It’s true! It’s very true. EVERYONE is going to want this book — even the haters and losers (Sad!).”
Unlike the President’s tweets themselves, Shannon’s book is recommended for “mature readers (16+)” and promises “a subversive and illuminating insight into the mind of the most divisive political figure of our time.”
Drawn by Shannon Wheeler, “Sh*t My President Says: The Illustrated Tweets of Donald J. Trump” is set to hit book stores in August 2017.
