Sam Humphries Signing Citizen Jack #1

What goes together better than politics and devil-worship? Writer Sam Humphries brings us Citizen Jack #1, starting a twisted new Image series about a failed small town politician who has a big dream about becoming the next President of the United States... and an interested demon that wants to make it happen for him. And we're going to have Sam in for a signing on November 14th from 1-3pm.

About Citizen Jack: Every presidential candidate has a skeleton in their closet—Jack Northworthy worships the devil! A scandal-plagued, small town politician, Jack should in no way be president.
