Staff Reviews


Imagine that someone completely unqualified gets elected President. (Okay, maybe that's not that difficult to imagine.) Well, imagine that something like Twitter or our country's biggest companies play a bigger role in our election than we could ever want. (Ugh, okay, fine.) Well, despite those unsettling similarities, Prez still holds at its center the all-important question: Can one good person still make a difference?

Description


One of the YALSA Top Ten Graphic Novels for Teens from 2016

America's first teenaged president is on the job in this contemporary twist on a DC classic

Oregon teen Beth Ross has just been elected President of the United States of America. Age restrictions were abolished when corporations gained the right to run for office and voting booths have been replaced by Twitter, making just about anyone eligible for the nation's top job, including the viral-video-famous Corndog Girl

Now the eyes of the nation are on Beth. But in a world so out of control that the poor are willing to shoot themselves on TV for a chance at a better life, will even the new president have the power needed to overthrow the nation's true leaders--Boss Smiley and his corporate shadow government?

Writer Mark Russell (God Is Disappointed in You) teams with artists Ben Caldwell (JUSTICE LEAGUE BEYOND) and Mark Morales (X-Force, Secret Invasion) to revive and reinvent a classic Collects PREZ #1-6 and SNEAK PEEK: PREZ #1.
