Comics Predict the Next President with 100% Accuracy!

Say, who's going to be the next President of the United States? Let's apply the universal rules of the board game Mystery Date. Could it be a dud...

Panels from Howard the Duck (2016 series) #1 (January 2016), script by Chip Zdarsky, pencils and colors by Joe Quinones, inks by Joe Rivera, letters by Travis Lanham

...or a...well, I'm not gonna call her a dream, sorry:

Panels from Fantastic Four Annual 2001 (September 2001), plot by Carlos and Rafael Marin, script by Jeph Loeb, pencils by Kevin Maguire, inks by Wade Von Grawbadger, colors by Chris Sotomayor, letters by Richard Starkings

Fact is, neither one of these comic books actually goes out of their way to truly say who will be the 45th President of the United States.

Well, except this one:

Panels from Star Trek (Gold Key/Western 1967 series) #9 (February 1971), script by Len Wein, pencils and inks by Alberto Giolitti

There ya go. Surprise third-party candidate Anton York will win the 2016 election. Also: the Doctor Strange movie is going to influence fashion a lot more than you might expect.

So start reading up on our next POTUS today!

I'd happily support any candidate who could rock such a sweet cape.
