Is This Is A Terribly Racist Tea Party Comic? Or Is It A Plant?

Pick a side, any side. This is the comic in question, two issues worth, courtesy of Ethan Persoff with commentary here.

Yeah I think you can see where they are going with this.

It started to gain a little traction from commentator Rachel Maddow earlier in the week with issue three now making an appearance. With more of the same.

TPMMuckracker has got Tea Party commentary who deny any involvement with the existence of the comic with Shelby Blakely of the Patriot Journal saying;

“It’s a plant and a bad one at that… The truth is in the details.”

But Ethan says he got the first copy from a Tea Party activist, the second through eBay, the third sent through the mail. That still doesn’t help too much with where these books actually originated.

So the politics blogs may be a whirl, but this is Bleeding Cool. We have comics on our side. Can anyone identify the comic book creator – who clearly knows his stuff? Anyone know where these may have been printed or distributed? Anyone see these pieces in a disturbing portfolio? If so, let Bleeding Cool in on it…
