Meet Buck and Lefty, co-joined twins from the opposite ends of the political spectrum. They are the stars of "Head2Head," an upcoming graphic novel currently in development by Al Kratzer and Bob Benjamin. Check out the excerpts in the gallery and stay tuned for release related updates!
Buck and Lefty are the result of a failed BioTech experiment conducted by Billionaire Tech Entrepreneur ALGO who dreams of creating a neutral, non-partisan candidate to run for president as a step toward realizing his Techtopian dream for society.
The Twins are released (ejected!) from the lab and embark on a series of blundering misadventures that pit them against each other over every political issue they encounter -- Free Speech, Guns, Women's Rights, Covid-19, Immigration and more.
A Frustrated ALGO, embarrassed by his first attempt, sets out to create an alternate candidate with equally unpredictable results -- triggering the wildest Presidential election ever seen!
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 business CEO, writer and long-time observer of the national political landscape. He is a mainstream Republican who tunes into "Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity" most nights.
If these two can work together, so can your Representatives
Al Kratzer and Bob Benjamin discuss how Head2Head came to be, the core message of the book and where Buck and Lefty are headed in this recent interview.
