If you enjoyed REPUGLICANS you ll want CAPITOL HELL by the same artist (Pete Von Sholly) who this time he skewers both Republicans and Democrats! CAPITOL HELL is a snarky political satire whose premise is at once dark and hilarious. Artfully crossing the politicians in America s headlines with yesterday s schlock horror and science fiction movies, the startling results will make some smile and some smile uncomfortably.
Example: Vice President Dick Cheney is crossed with Dracula to form the aptly named Dickula, whose latest victim is Colin Powell. (On the card back Dickula is described as administering a fatal Colinoscopy.)
Postcard book format with 24 different cards of political monsters on both sides of the aisle...
When the DNA of both presidential aspirants from each party, pundits and others are mixed with classic horror and sci-fi flicks in the author s inky lab, skin-crawling monstrosities result:
Rudy Giuliani + Nosferati = Nosferudy.
Hillary Clinton in Attack of the Fifty-Something Woman.

Mild-mannered but dangerous cartoonist Pete Von Sholly s newest effort is the outrageous REPUGLICANS (Boom! Town). He first made his name creating underground comix, collaborating with the likes of Timothy Leary back in the early 70s. Since then he s made a semi-respectable living creating Hollywood storyboards for countless film directors, such as Frank Darabont (The Green Mile and The Shawshank Redemption) and Tim Burton (Mars Attacks!) while producing fumetti graphic novels like The Flying F *ck, and the cultish Extremely Weird Tales for Dark Horse Comics. But tired of respect and no doubt seeking to secure a better paying political patronage job following the 2008 elections, Mr. Von Sholly decided to cozy up to America s most famous politicians with his amusing politician love letter, CAPITOL HELL, while there is still a 1st Amendment to protect him.
Writing the bulk of the card captions came easy for Denis Kitchen, also an underground cartoonist and a veteran publisher (Kitchen Sink Press), whose last foray into campaign year tomfoolery was 1992 when he published Republicans Attack!, a card set ballyhooed by The New York Times and sold at the Democratic National Convention. This time a satiric mirror is held to both parties. The Oddly Compelling Art of Denis Kitchen is new from Dark Horse Books.
