“Jeremy Corbyn: Comic Book Hero”
Pollsters called it a foregone conclusion. Columnists said Theresa May’s snap general election wouldn’t just return her a thumping majority in the House of Commons – it would plunge the Opposition into existential crisis. For Labour MPs, concerns about job security in an age of zero-hours contracts suddenly felt uncomfortably close to home.
And then something happened. Momentum got to work. Grime4Corbyn gathered steam. Clicktivists became door‑knocking, flag-waving activists. Jezza talked jam on The One Show and opened for The Libertines at Prenton Park. All this while Theresa turned into the Maybot and the Conservatives released a manifesto that looked bad for people and even worse for animals. Islington-dwelling socialist, bike-riding pacifist, green-fingered threat to the status quo: this revolutionary anthology captures the qualities and quirks of the Daily Mail's worst nightmare.
"In one incarnation, he is Corbyn the Barbarian, facing off against the Maydusa. In another, Corbynman leaves his 'mild mannered allotment of solitude' to take on the 'inter-dimensional invasion fleet of Daily Mail death drones blasting everything with their Tory food bank rays' with a rallying battle cry of 'jam on!'. Just in time for the Labour party conference, an unlikely superhero is preparing to take his place alongside the likes of Spider-Man and Wonder Woman: Jeremy Corbyn."
