It’s a big week for America. On Tuesday, November 3, one of the most controversial, important, chaotic elections will take place. 2020 has been a hell of a year, to put it mildly. It makes sense this presidential election would be just as scary, especially because the dividing lines between blue and red have never been more apparent. Whatever side of the political line you fall on, Never Show Weakness: Trump in Power is an important read, especially on the evening before you cast your vote (if you haven’t already done so, that is.).
Written by Anthony Del Col and illustrated by Josh Adams (with Nik Virella), the two-part series highlights key events during Trump’s first term: Charlottesville and the George Floyd protests. With colors by Charlie Kirchoff and Irma Kniivila, letters by Taylor Esposito, and edits by Walter Hickey, the comic takes sound bites from news outlets like Fox News and CNN along with quotes from various books and broadcasts to give a clear view of who 45 is as a leader. His character is also on full display, particularly his behind-the-scenes behavior with his staff and his various WTF moments in front of the camera.
If you are on the fence about which way to vote, the revealing read may help you decide. If you already have your mind made up, consider it a refresher course on some of the most tumultuous events that have occurred in just four short years.
Never Show Weakness: Trump in Power is available to read for free on Insider. It is the fourth comic the creative team has worked on with the outlet, with previous books covering Trump’s Impeachment, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and Trump’s response to COVID-19.
