Comic Creators Talk About… The Midterms

Posted by November 5, 2018 Comment

So, it is the midterm elections in the USA tomorrow. Held in November every four years, near the midpoint of a president’s four-year term of office, and focus on elections for members of the United States Congress, including all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives, and 33 or 34 of the 100 seats in the United States Senate. This year it’s 33.

In addition, 34 of the 50 U.S. states elect their governors to four-year terms during midterm elections, while Vermont and New Hampshire elect governors to two-year terms in both midterm and presidential elections. Thus, 36 governors are elected during midterm elections.

Midterm elections always generate lower voter turnout than presidential elections, with around 40% voting. Will that hold in 2018? And how are comic book creators reacting?

Well, some are canvassing.

Some are freaking out.

Some have recommendations for how you should vote.

Some are appealing for you to just vote.

Some are not so sure if you should…

Some want people to be nice to people wanting you to vote.

Some are just happy to vote.

And some are looking out for what happens afterwards.

But whatever happens, it happens tomorrow.
