Second Half Of Prez Cancelled By DC, But She'll Get A 12 Page Election Special In November

My favourite DC comic book of the last year, by far, was Prez by Mark Russell and Ben Caldwell, a Transmetropolitan-style satire of the Presidential electoral process that managed to be slightly more ridiculous than the real thing…Prez (2015-) 003-015

Slightly.

As a teenager corndog seller is accidentally made President by an electoral college procedure that gets out of hand.

We were promised a twelve issue series, then split into two six issue arcs. Well, we got the first half – but we will never see the second.

Instead we will have a 12 page Prez Election Special story in some form in November which will wrap the story up. A DC Comics representative tells me that Prez will get a chance to vote on Election Day, but writer Mark Russell tweeted,

 

I feel the same as when we were denied the second half of Top Ten Season Two by Zander Cannon and Gene Ha, which has not only been written, but laid out by Cannon.

They say it's better to have loved and lost than never loved at all.
