Harry Shearer To Return To "The Simpsons"
Called, fittingly enough, Action Presidents, the new title begins at the beginning, with a look at George Washington “in the hilarious-but-accurate manner of their previous works,” Action Philosophers and The Comic Book History of Comics.
“Long-announced, finally arrived, Action Presidents will profile a different chief executive in each issue,” Van Lente said in a statement, “at least until we start getting to the really lame ones.”
Each issue will be available for $1.99 on comiXology, “with a special dead tree edition available through distributor Tony Shenton and at conventions.” They plan to publish a collected edition once five or six issues have been released.
In a timely addendum, Evil Twin Comics confirmed in a press release its commitment to remaining in New York City, “specifically beneath a bridge spanning the Gowanus Canal.” Check out a preview of Action Presidents #1 below.
