"Justice League": Exploring How Superman Returns (Again)
Film, Comic Books
Managing to straddle the divide between timely and nostalgic, Topps has unveiled nine new Garbage Pail Kids cards featuring the presidential candidates, just in time for the New Hampshire primary. There’s a catch, however: They’re only available for 24 hours.
That’s probably just as well, though, considering that by this time Wednesday, a couple of those candidates will probably have dropped out of the race.
With this new series, Topps takes aim at Donald Trump (Donald Dumpty, Humpty Trumpty), Ted Cruz (“Texan” Ted, Canadian Cruz), Marco Rubio (Misspent Marco, Repo’ed Rubio), Jeb Bush (Dead Jeb, Beat Bush), Ben Carson (Brutal Ben, Cruel Carson), Chris Christie (Crass Chris, Crude Christie), John Kasich (Jumped-Ship John, Cash Kasich), Hillary Clinton (Billary Hillary, Coattails Clinton) and Bernie Sanders (Batty Bernie, Psycho Sanders).
They join the five limited-edition Garbage Pail Kids cards released last week for the Iowa Caucus. Somehow, current candidate Carly Fiorina and now-former candidates Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul and Rick Santorum escaped parody in both rounds.
The New Hampshire primary cards can be purchased from the Topps website for $9.99 per pair, or $49.99 for the complete set.
