    1st printing. Written by Aaron McGruder and Reginald Hudlin. Art by Kyle Baker. This scathingly hilarious political satire—produced from a collaboration of three of our funniest humorists—answers the burning question: Would anyone care if East St. Louis seceded from the Union? East St. Louis, Illinois (the inner city without an outer city), is an impoverished town, so poor that Fred Fredericks, its idealistic mayor, starts off Election Day by collecting the citys trash in his own minivan. But the mayor believes in the power of democracy and rallies his fellow citizens to the polls for the presidential election, only to find hundreds of them turned away for trumped-up reasons. Hardcover, 148 pages, full color. Cover price $25.00.
