Full disclosure: This editor’s best friend posted a plea on Facebook this morning asking everyone to vote for Elizabeth Warren on Super Tuesday and forget all the “no path to victory” talk. (I knew him when he was a conservative and a gun collector, so….)
What he didn’t include was an illustration of Warren in magical war machine armor giving a thumbs-up to her supporters, which still wouldn’t have sealed the deal, but would have made for a better laugh.
Myke Cole is a fantasy author, and illustrator Lauren K. Cannon decided to take Warren out of her warpaint and plop her into some devil-slayer armor.
Here’s @ewarren as Heloise from my SACRED THRONE books, her war machine blazoned with the sigil of the Palantine – savior and devil-slayer. The pundits were wrong in 2016 and they’re wrong now. Warren is still in this fight and she’s the woman we need. Art by @laurenkcannon. pic.twitter.com/dHiWIODeeS

We blame ourselves — we’ve posted “READ ANOTHER BOOK!” so many times, and it looks like someone did.
You’re posting cringe

I assume all the extra space in the armor is for carrying all her plans

We admit we haven’t read the books, but apparently there’s a good reason her head looks so small:

Her head size is her actual voting base
Her armor size is her Twitter base https://t.co/ajlpo64ywU

Projects a strong image, but is really just a Karen that needs to speak to your manager.

This looks like a poster for the new Power Rangers / Driving Miss Daisy mashup where Morgan Freeman drives an old white woman around in her vintage Megazord

Look you clearly have a lot of talent but I can’t stop laughing at this. I’m sorry. Good work on the color though I wish I could use it as well

does everyone who has any measure of success in the arts have to eventually become a bonehead? like do they make you sign something?

This better be ironic, or you’re in a seriously bad place mentally. 😕

Better keep it around through Super Tuesday to inspire the troops. Anything at this point.
Jesse Kelly, Katie Pavlich want to know how thirsty Elizabeth Warren is for Bernie Sanders’ VP slot https://t.co/E2yPivbyi6
