Meet Steampunk Sarah Palin


In these times of mash-up mayhem, when publishers are rallying around such titles as The Meowmorphosis , even the most nonsensical literary crossovers fail to surprise. Be that as it may, we were still awestruck to see the art from a newly released comic book called Steampunk Palin , which was announced back in August.

According to the folks at Comics Alliance, who have posted an in-depth review declaring that the book is “so bad it’s good,” it takes place “in the near future, in the immediate aftermath of a war that has destroyed all the Earth’s oil. A new power source is needed, and Sarah Palin steps forward to suggest steam power as a replacement. A conglomerate consisting of big oil and nuclear power interests makes a counterproposal by blowing her up with a bomb at the meeting where she suggests this.” We’re not sure what’s funnier — the idea of Palin as an anti-big business activist or the fact that a third of the book is devoted to Palin pin-ups. Check out some panels from the comic after the jump.

Do Sarah Palin’s boobs triple in size — just like Popeye’s arms — when she puts on the armor?

Why stop at “Muslim”? Surely we can get Glenn Beck on board with the “he’s actually a robot” conspiracy theory. Oh, and yes, that’s John McCain on the right.

Um, is that a tongue ring?
