Move over chromium: Check out the googly-eyes-enhanced cover for the new anti-Michele Bachmann comic

Finally, a cover gimmick that Real Americans can get behind. That eye-catching image above is of the cover to False Witness! The Michele Bachmann Story #4. Written by Bill Prendergast with art by Kevin Cannon, Danno Klanowski, Lupi McGinty, and James Powell, it’s the latest in a series of satirical takedowns of the Minnesota Republican Congressperson, mostly using her own outlandish quotes as ammo. This issue focuses on her religious views, and as such it features the disembodied head of Jesus Christ floating around like the Wizard of Oz with actual plastic googly eyes pasted on top. God Bless America!

The issue retails for $4 and can be purchased at, but be warned: Only the first 500 copies will be googly-eye-enhanced. (Via Talking Points Memo, who have an extensive review.)



I guess if you can’t beat ‘em, make a comic book ridiculing them.

I’ve been done with political ‘opinion’ comics ever since the first Obama ass-kissing covers from Marvel and others.
I don’t care I don’t want them in my collection and I don’t like seeing them on the shelves. It’s all the same: Bash the right and talk about how ‘good’ the left is. I really don’t care what the political leanings of comics creators are. Just draw/write my comics please.

Michele Bachmann SHOULD be held up to ridicule. She’s the one who wants to go New McCarthyism on congress people she doesn’t like. She’s a reprehensible loony.

”Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas.”
—Rep. Michelle Bachmann, April, 2009

Then maybe she should lock herself in a room full of Carbon Dioxide. Let’s see how not harmful it is, Michele.

@ Drunkjack

Every sane person knows what she is talking about. How can carbon dioxide be “harmful” when plants need it to survive?

This thread has already exceeded my wildest expectations.

I want this.

It’s really not all the same. This isn’t about bashing one side over the other. It’s about deconstructing a disturbing trend in politics. If you dislike the idea of politicians misappropriating religion to manipulate voters, you may find something to like here. I know people on both sides of the aisle who are sick of that b.s.


By that logic too much water wouldn’t be harmful either; and that’s ridiculous. Fully melted polar ice caps, for example, would lead to problems for many people on coasts. Drinking too much water will kill you.

In the same way too much CO2 can be harmful to the environment. Realistically, too much of anything is harmful. I think any sane person should be able to see that too.

And regardless of whether you think climate change is caused by human industry, don’t you think any sane person would rather err on the side of caution?

@Dan “too much of anything is harmful.”

Like too much religion.
