Presidents in Comic Books #31: Herbert Hoover

Hey, it's one of America's most popular Presidents of all time, right? Herbert Hoover, inventor of the vacuum cleaner! I'm bettin' he's in lots of comic books, huh?

Uh...yep. An' that's all I got for Herbert Hoover.

That last panel looks like Charles Xavier is talking to Ronald Reagan.

Hoover gets a bad rap. For one thing, he mostly inherited a helluva mess from Calvin Coolidge, who missed the Great Depression by the skin of his teeth, but doesn't get any of the blame.

Wait...this sounds familiar.

Eduardo Barreto, though. Wow.
