A Year of Cool Comics – Day 46

by  in Comic News Comment

Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Today, for President’s Day, let’s look at a story featuring one of the toughest U.S. Presidents of all-time, Theodore Roosevelt, in Benito Cereno and Graeme MacDonald’s Tales From the Bully Pulpit…

Enjoy!

Tales From the Bully Pulpit is delightfully simple in its awesomeness.

Theodore Roosevelt steals a time machine from HG Wells and travels to the year 2000, where he gets help from the ghost of Thomas Edison to improve the time machine to go to the future to fight someone Roosevelt presumes must be Hitler…





Of course, though, when they end up in the far off future (the year 2008), it turns out that it is, indeed, Hitler…


and he has bad news for the people of Mars…


TR and Edison head to Mars to protect the Martians, and through the power of time travel, both sides add to their rosters…



I think you can tell from the art and the dialogue of these pages that this is just a rollicking good time featuring a bunch of famous historical figures.

It’s really quite a blast, and a fun way to celebrate President’s Day (which is, of course, technically George Washington’s Birthday, but that’s neither here nor there)!
