Meet Buck and Lefty, co-joined twins from the opposite ends of the political spectrum. They're the stars of "Head2Head," a graphic novel that pokes fun at the 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 time and again are banned by elected officials and powerful lobbyist from both the Democrat and Republican parties because of their potential impact on society. To fend them off, Algo strived to create a neutral, non-partisan candidate to run for President!
Buck and Lefty are released (ejected!) from Algo's 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. Each, and every episode involves a colorful, comical dialogue based on real occurrences in Washington. The rude, often crude thinking from the far right and fanatic left is exposed, providing everyone with big laughs at the ridiculousness of it all!
As all hell breaks loose, Buck and Lefty come to terms and realize that for their own sake, and for the sake of our country, compromise is necessary! There’s no absolute right or wrong and political correctness is an unachievable ideal. The best solutions to America’s problems are, and always will be, somewhere towards the “center.” Therein, lies the essence of “Head2Head."
Al Kratzer is a political and sports cartoonist whose work has appeared in numerous NJ newspapers, The New York Times, Ring magazine and online with Sports Illustrated and Reuters. His political views are best described "a half-step to the right of Bernie Sanders."
Bob Benjamin is a business CEO, writer and long-time observer of the national political landscape. He's a mainstream Republican who tunes into "Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity" every night.
If these two can work together, why can’t our Representatives in Washington?
