Boom Just Published A Post-Donald Trump Presidency Comic Book

Whether Boom Studios planned it or not, it may be a bit of good timing that Warlords of Appalachia #1 was releasing three days after Sunday night's second US Presidential Debate.

The new original series, written by Phillip Kennedy Johnson and drawn by Jonas Scharf, takes place in an alternate future after a second civil war in the United States. In the first issue we learn that only Kentucky holds out from being reintegrated into the United States.

That's a United States run by a former radio host turned President named Roth. A character who shares similarities with Donald Trump.

Is Boom predicting what a post-Trump America will look like?

Yes, yes they are. No reaction from Phil Boyle as of yet.
