THE GREAT SUCCESSOR: 
KIM JONG-UN - A POLITICAL CARTOON 
An epic comic of the Dark Kingdom and the passing of power to a third Kim. 
Written by Ha Tae Keung
Illustrated by Choi Byeong-seon

WHERE THERE IS TYRANNY THERE IS RESISTANCE! 
THE 3RD GENERATION SUCCESSOR WILL NOT ESCAPE THE RESISTANCE OF HIS PEOPLE! 
THE GREAT SUCCESSOR details the realities of the recent succession of Kim Jong-Un as leader of the DPRK. 
From propaganda engines to "trusted" news sources, many of us will never know what really goes on in the Dark Kingdom. THE GREAT SUCCESSOR provides a rare glimpse at the new face (and belly) of leadership in the North. 

What is in store for the future of North Korea? Only time will tell, but The Great Successor provides some insight to the background of the young new leader of the most secretive dictatorship on earth. At only thirty, Kim Jong Eun could have a long future as a head of state, he could tow the line of his father's Military First Philosophy to the bitter end (and invariable ruin of the state) or he could herald a new beginning of reform (in whatever form it will take), and lead his people out of the dark... 
THE GREAT SUCCESSOR hopes to answer:
 
Who is this third Kim? 
Where did he come from?
Should we be afraid of him?
Will he make an effort to transform?
Make amends, become friends?
Or will he strike, sudden like a storm?
 
Is he some savior, here
to save the people from fear and famine?
Will he reexamine Military First
And is he versed in the ways of transforming
A country, torn and tattered
To a place that mattered to its people?
 
Or at worst, will he in his thirst for power
Build more useless towers, and weapons to reach
At zero hour, the brothers to the south, the allies, the others
To kill men, children and mothers?
Is it in his intentions to attack?
Or will he bring back the idea of utopia true?
We beseech you!
