Week in Review: DONALD TRUMP

This has been a very slow month for comic speculation but there are two things this week that stand up.

Donald Trump is the president. But did you know that there was a comic book that came out in 1990 that eerily featured aspects of life in 2016. This isn’t the first comic book appearance of Donald Trump- CORRECTION: Donald Trumps First appearance in Comics is Ironman #228 from March 1988 and not Hup! #13 by R.Crumb as previously stated. This 1990 book is Heavy Metal July 1990 featuring the story The Wall by Peter Kuper.

Featuring scenes of civil unrest, the building of a wall, the deportation of a large group are just some of the weird parallels to the 2016 US election. (It even features the “Dump Trump” phrase). The full story can be read here.

This book was first reported by Bleedingcool and since being reported about has sold out on ebay. – this book has the potential to be a $40+ book by next week and is a book you should be looking for! (This book is available on the Heavy Metal website for $4)

Another book that has started to heat up that you should be looking for is the new Dark Horse series – World of Tanks #1 – this book, written by Garth Ennis and based on the popular video game has been selling online for upwards of $10 to $15. Great flip potential!

  • Good work Jimmy. I like that Heavy Metal cover. Thanks for the tip!

  • Dude, this is crap. Now you’re doing political biased posts as well as comicbook speculating? It’s not the comic that is crap, it’s your take on the similarities. The comic separates the affluent from the poor and less fortunate. The president wants to stop illegal imagrants from sneaking in. This is the stuff that provokes people to riot in the streets.

    • My website is a blog giving my opinion on books I think will go up in value – don’t like it? Don’t read it.
      Now with that being said, I live in Canada so I really don’t think I have a political bias either way.
      You brought up illegal immigration – Its called illegal immigration. The first word is illegal – how is stopping that causing riots? Its not.
      Where were the riots when Bernie Saunders had the DNC stolen from him? Oh thats right – the people rioting didn’t vote so it doesn’t matter anyways.
      Do not come here and post political garbage. I voted for a guy named Justin thank you very much.

  • Are you sure that Trump appears in Iron Man 228?…..didn’t see it.
