The incredibly racist ‘Tea Party Comix’
Ethan Persoff of Comics with Problems tells us he picked up the first two edition of “Tea Party Comix” from an “enthusiastic Tea Partier in Corpus Christi.” The seller apparently meant to reach customers in a gas station. Adding: He got the second edition through eBay.
Now Persoff’s got issue three of “Tea Party Comix.” He writes that he found it in his mailbox “in an envelope so stiff and reeking of cigarette smoke that we’re concerned it’s flame retarded.” Also, in addition to the comic’s being patently racist and utterly offensive, Persoff says, it’s “actually pretty good.” Much of the third edition consists of parodies of classic covers. Persoff points to this take on an old Spider-Man, with President Obama as the Vulture:
We still don’t know who’s creating these things. We’re actively searching. If you’ve got any clues, please let us know. We want to meet this person.
It’s possible that they are from a real Tea Party supporter but I kinda doubt it. Any thoughts?

It doesn’t look to be a liberal spoofing Tea partiers. Lot’s of stuff about the birth certificate, The evils of vaccinations, Obama being a smoker and free abortions. Hardly the kind of things some liberal would use to mock the Tea Partiers with. One comic deals with fiat currency so it might be a Paulian. Either way they’re pretty immature and not much understanding of any real political issues. The author is obviously pretty young and obsessed with comic books.
