"I wanted to do a very different comic book than the original Prez. I think that the original Prez was more relevant for the early ’70s–it was about that they thought youth culture was about to take over the world now that 18 year olds could vote, and we’re in very different world now. We’re in a world where youth culture has largely failed, where the government and politics are largely controlled by elites and non-egalitarian forces. So I wanted to do a comic that was about this political reality, and to make that separation as cleanly as possible I wanted to come up with a completely different character in as many ways as possible from the original Prez Rickard. Although, I will say, Prez Rickard does show up as a character in the new Prez: he’s super old, in his 70s, and he’s a failed wunderkind from the past. He did not become president in my world, but he is there. I wanted it to be a very different comic about a very different time in American history."

Prez has easily become my favorite new DC comic recently. Just so damn funny and has a lot of heart. I honestly wish history here would wait a bit until the next issue came out so he or she could show more of the book.

This is a massively cynical world they're creating here. Hard to think what other countries must be like.

I'm hoping for an issue in the future where our new Prez has to deal with whatever the state of America's foreign policy is myself. This has to be interesting.

Easily my favorite DC book right now but I really wish it wasn't being cut in half

It's still going to have all 12 issues. I ask the creator on twitter and he confirmed the series is being split into two mini-series.
