Clinton Cash, Peter Schweizer’s tome chronicling Bill and Hillary Clinton’s lust for money, has been a New York Times bestseller, a documentary with a premiere at Cannes, and now, thanks to veteran Marvel and DC comics writers and artists, will be a graphic novel.
Clinton Cash: The Graphic Novel will hit stores August 9th, and feature a storyline based on Schweizer’s book and penned by Chuck Dixon, best known for penning Batman arcs back in the 1990s, as well as his work with Robin, Nightwing (Detective Comics). He joins artist and colorist Brett R. Smith, who has been involved with several major DC and Marvel Comics franchises, including Batman: The Dark Knight and Suicide Squad.
The graphic novel says that it will help to tell the story of “the most corrupt candidate ever,” tracing Hillary Clinton’s involvement with shady characters back to when she and Bill left the White House in the late 1990s.
If it’s anything like Schweizer’s book of the same name, it will lay bare the Clintons’ dealings with foreign nationals (especially with unfriendly nations), their six-figure speaking engagements, and the relationships that are helping to propel Hillary Clinton to the top of the Democratic ticket. The book, aimed primarily at Hillary Clinton’s more liberal supporters, details everything from her involvement with Wall Street banks and oil companies, to how the Clinton Foundation ended up on human rights and non-profit watch-lists.
This is not the first time politics and comic books have met this election cycle. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, among several people on Hillary Clinton’s VP shortlist, got her own “girl power” comic book earlier this year. And Marvel Comics’s newly released Spider Gwen #1 features a tiny-fingered super-villain who bears a striking resemblance to a Republican Presidential front-runner.
Clinton Cash will hit comic book store shelves August 9.
