Mark Russell reads from his comic "Second Coming". In 2015, Russell made his comic book debut with his critically acclaimed reboot of the 1973-74 comic Prez about a teenager who is elected to serve as President of the United States. Following Prez, Russell was hired to write The Flintstones comic book series for DC Comics, winning two Eisner Awards, including Best Limited Series and Best Humor Publication. Russell followed up with another DC venture titled, Exit, Stage Left!: The Snagglepuss Chronicles, reinventing the titular Hanna Barbera character as a gay southern gothic playwright living in 1950s New York. For this, Russell won the 2019 GLAAD Award for Outstanding Comic and was nominated for the Eisner Award for Best Writer and Best Limited Series.
