I Love Ya But You’re Strange – Time Traveling Theodore Roosevelt Versus Time Traveling Hitler!

Every week, I will spotlight strange but ultimately endearing comic stories (basically, we’re talking lots and lots of Silver Age comic books). Here is the archive of all the installments of this feature.

Today, I spotlight a book for the main reason that I want you all to tell Image to reprint it. I suppose is the best address to go with (don’t want to overload Eric Stephenson or Todd Martinez’s e-mail boxes). So e-mail Image to tell them “PLEASE REPRINT TALES FROM THE BULLY PULPIT!”

As to WHY they should, read on…

Benito Cereno and Graeme MacDonald’s Tales From the Bully Pulpit is an original graphic novel that came out in 2004. It 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.

So if you’d like to read this comic book and you don’t want to pay the $25 (or more) that it is currently going for on eBay, e-mail Image Comics and plead with them!
