DC Comics’ PR has given their media partner CBR the details for Catwoman: Election Night #1, a 48-page one-shot out in November. That will feature a 12 page finale to the Mark Russell and Ben Caldwell‘s comic book Prez, rather than the promised second set of six issues.
Despite being one of DC’s most critically acclaimed titles, the comic that saw an accidental Youtube sensation made President of the USA after some serious croneyism and jostling for power never achieved the sales DC wanted and so its planned run has been cut in half. This 12 page back-up strip seems a final attempt to wring some final topicality out of the series.
The rest of the comic by Meredith Finch and Shane Davis will see Catwoman getting involved with Gotham’s mayoral election.
Looks like I should add this to the Frankensteining list…
