R. Sikoryak is famous for taking classic comics and mashing them with famous literature as he did in Masterpiece Comics or even using comics to visualize the iTunes Terms and Conditions contract. Now in these uncertain times, cartoonist R. Sikoryak draws upon the power of comics and satire to frame President Trump and his controversial declarations as the words and actions of the most notable villains and antagonists in comic book history. Reimagining the most famous comic covers, Sikoryak transforms Wonder Woman into Nasty Woman; Tubby Tompkins into Trump; Black Panther into the Black Voter; the Fantastic Four into the Hombres Fantasticos and Trump into Magneto fighting the Ex-Men. In perfect Trumpian fashion, The Unquotable Trump will be a 48-page treasury annual-needlessly oversized and garishly colored; a throw-back to the past when both Comics and America were Great. This will be the hugest comic, truly a great comic. You won't want to miss this, trust me, you'll see!

American graphic cartoonist and animator, R. Sikoryak takes the likes of superhero iconography as a fitting way to seriously critique US prez, Donald Trump and his endlessly questionable policies.

Sikoryak borrows from the "pop culture" power that exists in comics and satire to showcase Trump and his hypocritical declarations as words coming from the most nasty, two-faced villains in comic book history.

Yep. From such comic-book fantasies as Superman, Peanuts, the X-Men, Archie, and beyond - "The Unquotable Trump" is sure to amuse all of those who are not at all amused by the one, the only, the terrible, Donald (quack! quack! quack!) Duck... Ooops! I meant, Trump.
