CNN anchor Jake Tapper urges followers to vote via comic book art

Jake Tapper. Comic book fan, or comic meme expert?

The urgency to vote is higher than ever, possibly in my lifetime, and most others must feel the same including CNN anchor Jake Tapper. Early this morning, Tapper took to Twitter to urge his 2.7 million followers to register to vote and he did so via comic book imagery.

It started with a Lex Luthor “Vote for Lex” graphic Tapper tweeted. The art is by Glen OrbikLaurel Blechman from Superman: Lex 2000 #1.

Soon after though he admitted he had to “get both sides” and followed it up with a Joker graphic urging folks to vote. That’s from Batman: Dark Detective Vol 1 #1. Art by Marshall RogersTerry AustinChris Chuckry.

There were plenty of replies to his tweet with additional comic book art about voting, references to Trump as Kingpin, and more. Not to be outdone, Tapper dished out a voting PSA commercial from 1992 featuring Spider-Man.

It was a nice reminder comic books have been entrenched in politics forever. Oh, and also, Jake Tapper is clearly a comic book fan.
