A TRIBUTE TO MY CONSERVATIVE FRIENDS


Most of my conservative buddies – and yes I have plenty of cons in the friends and family tree – think the moon glows for Ronald Reagan. He is a favorite president for many people, that is for sure. I write this blog post with friend, Larry, especially in mind as he loves comics and Ronald Reagan. See where this is going?

I was search the tube this morning and found a comic book biography of Ronald Reagan. It is from Hill and Wang, a subsidiary of Macmillan. I just had to blog. From the website:

“He confronted evil empires, planned Star Wars missile defense systems, and advocated supply-side economics. Let’s face it: Ronald Reagan’s presidency is tailor-made for comic-book art. Whether explaining how the onetime Franklin Roosevelt New Dealer became the conservative right’s standard-bearer, how a B-list actor became General Motors’s pitchman then governor of California, or how a union president became an anti-union President, this graphic biography does what no other biography can: visually narrate the life of a man who relied on stage directions and political theater to become America’s “Great Communicator.” The blended genius of Andrew Helfer (onetime group editor at DC Comics), Steve Buccellato (whose artwork has been published by Epic, Marvel, DC, and Dark Horse), and Joe Staton (artist for E-Man, Green Lantern, and most recently Scooby-Doo) makes Ronald Reagan: A Graphic Biography an absolutely original, absolutely factual, and absolutely unforgettable history of America’s fortieth president.”
