IDW is Still Going Hard-Left in the Face of So Much Failure

FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller came up empty handed in his quest to prove that President Trump had colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election. His failure to find any evidence of collusion, in spite of howls of left wing media and celebrities, exposed two years of relentless Russiagate propaganda and the media that sold it.

But according to IDW Publishing, the Mueller Report should be turned into a graphic novel because it is the greatest WHODUNIT of our time… or a new low for “Presidential Harassment!”

Shannon Wheeler, Eisner Award-winning New Yorker cartoonist (Too Much Coffee ManSh*t My President SaysGod is Disappointed in You), and journalist Steve Duin (The OregonianComics: Between the PanelsOil and Water) turn their partisan eyes on the Mueller Report – a graphic novel version of the FBI’s report on the Russia collusion that never happened between President Trump and the Russian government.

In fact, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report said, “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities.”

It also stated, “The evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference.”

The report ends an almost three-year investigation — started by the FBI and continued by Robert Mueller — into whether President Trump or anyone from his campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election, but that hasn’t stopped hard-left ideologues from coming up with their own conspiracy theories surrounding the unfounded collusion claims.

Wheeler and Duin, in graphic form, bring to life scenes detailed in the report: from the nothing-burger Trump Tower Meeting of 2016 to President Trump finding out he was the subject of a secret spying operation by the FBI. 



The Mueller Report: Graphic Novel borrows style from classic private detective yarns, complete with a villain’s rogues’ gallery,  cliffhangers, and a lone lawman standing against the President of the United States. But if you think Mueller didn’t have enough power to get to the truth, he led a team of approximately 40 FBI agents who issued over 2,800 subpoenas, executed “nearly 500 search warrants,” and “obtained over 230 orders for communication records. They also issued 13 requests to foreign governments for evidence and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses. If there was something to be found, it would have been, else Mueller is a complete incompetent.

And if you don’t think this graphic novel will be a hard-left partisan Trump-hate party, the book’s editor should clear up that misconception:

“Shannon and Steve have done an incredible job taking the rotten ingredients cataloged by Robert Mueller and turning them into a delicious satirical feast,” says the book’s editor, Justin Eisinger. “It’s funny. It’s maddening. But it’s a great resource for anyone that wants to be informed about the findings of the most important law enforcement document created in our lifetime.”

See Trump berate his Attorney General. Watch a petulant Commander-in-Chief lob insults at the White House counsel. Witness the “witch hunt” as it happened, cataloged as only the top lawman in the country could!  This staggering laundry list of questionable contacts, misleading statements, unreported engagements, and possible coordination — enough to stun any student of the U.S. Constitution — is laid bare with a cold, satirical edge.

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You may Tweet in anger. But most importantly, you will be reading the report for yourself!


The Mueller Report: Graphic Novel goes on sale in April 2020. Will it be another failure for IDW? Maybe they’re “turning into the slide”??
