Joe Biden hasn’t had much time to settle into being vice-president yet, but he could get some advice from Top Shelf’s Veeps: Profiles in Insignificance. Veeps explores not only the ones you know (Dick Cheney, Al Gore) but the ones you probably don’t (Charles Fairbanks, John Nance Garner), and focuses as much on the insignificant-but-funny as the significant. In other words, it makes politics fun, even if you aren’t a junkie like me.
Veeps writer Bill Kelter and illustrator Wayne Shellabarger are due to appear on Air America Radio’s Doing Time with Ron Kuby today at 3 PM (EST). The website can tell you where to find a station, or you can stream the show live.
The Veeps creators have a blog full of political hilarity, if you just can’t get enough. BoingBoing also has excerpts, and of course, Caleb covered it for the mothership covered it back in November. And I’ll have more on it myself when the U.S. mail comes through for me.
And my source tells me that we’ll be seeing more from Wayne Shellabarger at TopShelf 2.0, Top Shelf’s online comics section. So keep an eye out.
