Synopses & Reviews
America's first teenaged president is on the job in this contemporary twist on a DC classic.
Oregon teen Beth Ross has just been elected President of the United States of America. Age restrictions were abolished when corporations gained the right to run for office and voting booths have been replaced by Twitter, making just about anyone eligible for the nation s top job, including the viral-video-famous Corndog Girl.
Now the eyes of the nation are on Beth. But in a world so out of control that the poor are willing to shoot themselves on TV for a chance at a better life, will even the new president have the power needed to overthrow the nation's true leaders Boss Smiley and his corporate shadow government?

"Very sharp political commentary." Mike Roe from Off-Ramp on NPR
"It's just perfect. It's better than perfect; it snow. What Russell and Caldwell have created is the impossible, unlikely, and interminable now; the world as it is, hyperrealized in the kind of tomorrow we dare not believe, yet secretly fear will come." PopMatters
"Prez has become a standout title with its sharp political commentary, bold sense of humor, and intricate world building in both the writing and art." A.V. Club/The Onion
