Presidents Day Special: Lincoln vs. Robot Hitler

I think that title just about sums it up, but for those of you who don't know, today is Presidents Day, and while it's ostensibly a holiday set aside to honor all of our various Heads of State here in the good ol' USA, we here at the ISB know that it's all about Abe.

As longtime readers might remember, former Illinois State Wrestling Champion Abraham Lincoln is unequivocally my favorite president, and that's why I set aside some time today to read Benito Cereno and Graeme MacDonald's action-packed 2004 one-shot Tales From the Bully Pulpit, an adventure story wherein Teddy Roosevelt and the ghost of Thomas Edison hijack a time machine and wage a battle against South American Nazis on Mars, and I can assure you, it's as fantastic as it sounds.

The best part, of course, is the climax, when Roosevelt reveals his secret weapon for defeating Hitler's plan of Martian conquest, and what follows can only be considered awesome:

Abraham Lincoln: Preserving the Union by Wrecking Evil's Face.

Happy President's Day, Everybody!

BONUS FEATURE: Show's Over, Caesar!

As part of his sinister master plan, Robot Hitler assembles a group of history's greatest dictators, including both Chairman Mao and "his interdimensional anthropomorphic counterpart," Chairman Meow in what may actually be the best use of cat-based communism in printed media. But needless to say...

...they don't do so hot. Man that guy's awesome.

God, I love that comic. I prefer to believe that Lincoln actually had opportunity to say "Bring it, boy! I'm gonna emancipate your teeth!" at some point in his life.

They're making a sequel to "Bully Pulpit", and I for one am pleased as all kinds of punch. I'm itching to see Teddy Roosevelt and Thomas Edison's further journeys.

While it is pretty easy for those of us not born in the USofA to bag you guys for your world domination aspirations, that might just be the best comic ever written!!!!

Teddy Roosevelt is wearing a Captain Marvel, Jr, costume. Awesome and frightening, two great tastes that taste great together!

Of course, if it had been Mary Marvel's costume, then there could be all sorts of "Rough Rider" innuendoes....

I'm pretty convinced Tales from the Bully Pulpit may be one of the finest comics of all time. It should at least be required reading in history classrooms nationwide.

Have you ever seen the Russian comic "Stalin vs. Hitler"? It's really wonderfully strange.

Fantastic comic.
It's like Nextwave and 9th grade history had a beautiful child together. While rereading it, I kept waiting for Lincoln to call someone "fleshy one". Is it sad that I already miss good old Aaron Stack?

It's an awesome comic, and one that totally deserves a second printing. I hope they actually do make the sequel that was mentioned a few years back but never came to be.

Whoa, I'm totally on the Invincible Super-Blog.

I'm trying really hard to get the sequel made?

There's actually a sequel and then a kind of half-sequel that will probably come out first.

I am totally too late with this comment for anyone to see it.

Well I saw it, and I'm totally up for a sequel.
