Summary
R. Sikoryak is famous for taking classic comics and mashing them with famous literature as he did in Masterpiece Comics or even using comics to visualize the iTunes Terms and Conditions contract. Now in these uncertain times, cartoonist R. Sikoryak draws upon the power of comics and satire to frame President Trump and his controversial declarations as the words and actions of the most notable villains and antagonists in comic book history.

Reimagining the most famous comic covers, Sikoryak transforms Wonder Woman into Nasty Woman; Tubby Tompkins into Trump; Black Panther into the Black Voter; the Fantastic Four into the Hombres Fantasticos and Trump into Magneto fighting the Ex-Men.

In perfect Trumpian fashion, The Unquotable Trump is a 48-page treasury annual�needlessly oversized and garishly colored; a throw-back to the past when both Comics and America were Great. This is the hugest comic, truly a great comic. You won�t want to miss this, trust me, you�ll see!
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Comics mash-up master Sikoryak (Terms and Conditions) tackles "the Donald" by splicing president Trump's image and quotes on to comic book covers ranging from the Golden Age to the present. The result is an often-hilarious collision between overblown comic book absurdity and Trump's entitled absurdity. Naturals include Trump as Richie Rich and Uncle Scrooge, but slyer observations include the "I could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue" quote set on the cover of Batman's first appearance. While the juxtaposition of comic book cover tropes and bombast is amusing to the layperson, readers well-versed in the history of American comics and many of its iconic covers will get added layers of humor seeing Trump rendered in styles emulating those of artists such as Jack Kirby, John Romita Sr., Carmine Infantino, Harry G. Peter, and Neal Adams. Printed in the retro treasury edition format, the book will someday serve as a memento of a time when truth was stranger than fiction. (Nov.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
