Background information
What is Yps?
Roughly speaking, Yps is a combination of lifestyle and urban culture, as in "Wired" magazine, and comics strips for grown-ups. Yps is published bimonthly by Egmont Ehapa Media and targets mainly men aged 25 and up. Its flagship character is the green squared kangaroo called Yps.

Why Donald Trump and Ted Cruz?
In every issue Yps features a comic story including well known celebrities, e.g. Ozzy Osbourne or Michael Douglas. Hence this year's presidential elections are also very present throughout the German media landscape. Martin Tazl, author and illustrator of the new comic piece "Viva Las Vegas", thought this is the ideal topic for a satirical approach.
