Buck and Lefty, are co-joined twins from opposite ends of the political spectrum. They're the stars of "Head2Head," a graphic novel that pokes fun at the absurd world of American politics today.
The Twins are the result of a failed experiment conducted by Algo, a brilliant, billionaire “disrupter” not unlike an Elon Musk. He invents products that are banned time and again by elected officials and powerful lobbyist from both the Democrat and Republican parties because of their potential impact on society. To fend them off, in his laboratory, Algo strives to create a neutral, non-partisan candidate to run for President!
Buck and Lefty, after a less than impressive interview with Algo, are released (ejected!) from the lab and embark on a series of blundering misadventures that pit them against each other on every political issue they encounter - Free Speech, Guns, Women's Rights, COVID, Immigration and more. Every episode involves a colorful, comical dialogue based on real events in Washington. The rude, often crude thinking of the far right and fanatic left is exposed, providing everyone with big laughs at the stupidity of it all!
As all hell breaks loose, The Twins come to terms and realize that for their own sake, and the sake of our country, compromise is necessary! There’s no absolute right or wrong and political correctness is an unachievable ideal. With legions of followers showing support, they decide the time is right – the must run for President!
You’ve never seen a campaign like this, but it sure is a lot of fun! And you might even agree with Buck and Lefty: The best solutions to America’s problems are, and always will be, somewhere towards the “center.” Therein, lies the essence of “Head2Head."

If these two can work together, why can’t our Representatives in Washington?
