I have created the worlds first conservative comic.

 

My question is am I ending my career as a writer before it begins, with such a divisive subject?

 

(Here is a short synopsis)

 

America’s future has become an Orwellian nightmare of ultra-liberalism.  Beginning with the Gore Presidency, the government has become increasingly dominated by liberal extremists.  In 2004, Muslim terrorists stopped viewing the weakened American government as a threat; instead they set their sites on their true enemies, vocal American conservatives.   Terrorist assassins have thinned the ranks of the vocal Right.  The few conservatives that survived attempts on their lives have been forced underground by the oppressive “Coulter Laws” of 2007. In order to further their cause, they have joined forces and formed a powerful covert conservative organization called “The Freedom of Information League”, aka F.O.I.L.

 

The New York City faction of F.O.I.L. is lead by Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy and Oliver North, each uniquely endowed with special abilities devised by a biomechanical engineer affectionately named “Oscar”.  F.O.I.L. is soon to be joined by a young man named Reagan McGee.  Reagan was born on September 11th, 2001.   Reagan has grown to manhood in an ultra-liberal educational system: being told, not asked, what to think.  With personal determination, which alienates him from his contemporaries, he has chosen the path less traveled…the path to the Right.

 

Two decades of negotiation with the U.N., and America’s administration of 2021 (President Chelsea Clinton and Vice President Michael Moore), has culminated in a truce with fundamentalist Islamic terrorists, or so America is told. The honorable ambassador from Afghanistan has come to NYC to address the U.N., his name is Usama Bin Laden.

 

Although, Ambassador Bin Laden has announced that he will publicly apologize for the “misunderstanding” of the events of 9/11.  In actuality, he intends on detonating a tactical nuke that is contained in his private diplomatic briefcase.  It is a race against the clock to save NYC from a nuclear holocaust and the world from liberal domination. Only with F.O.I.L.’s help, can “Liberality For All” once again become “Liberty For All!”

 

END

Hey cool, I'd be a villain.  Can I have neat powers?

The devil gets the good lines.

Mike, I support your right to write it and publish it, but I wouldn't buy it.

That sounds quite atrocious.  I hope it's a joke of some kind.

Sure, but you will either need to be in the UN or Al-Qaeda. 

But seriously, I think as a niche market I could produce a book a lot of people will enjoy but will an editor/ publisher look beyond their own political views and concern them selves with profit first? 

Both the Liberal Left’s Fahrenheit 911 and the Conservative Right’s Passion of the Christ were shopped around to distributors, but were viewed by short-sighted production / distribution houses as too controversial.  Each production went on to make fortunes selling wildly to their ravenous bases. Their wakes of success left many of the same production companies scratching their heads and regretting their refusal to see each production’s profit potential.

So what is first in the comic publishing industry? Profit or Personal Belief Systems

No joke, very serious project, I have thousands invested in.

Tell me how I can do a Google search on "conservative comic book" and get no results relating to a conservative comic book?  Do you know how many very conservative people there are out there?  If Michael Moore can make 100million spewing ultra lib propaganda, Why not something ultra-conservative in the Comic Genre?

Why has it not been done before?

I believe Passion, and to a lesser extent Fahrenheit, played beyond their "bases."
