At 13th Dimension: "Happy Presidents Day: It’s Our Favorite President!", not Chester A. Arthur. Stop writin' in demanding more Chester A. Arthur comics!

It's actually Richard M. Nixon that my bestest pal John has written about today on 13th Dimension, and you can check out 13 of Tricky Dick's most bizarre and outrageous appearances in comics! From pinching Teri Garr's bottom to facing off against the New Three Musketeers, it's all here, even that time when Captain America watched President N cash in his chips! (You really have to pick your poker buddies more carefully, Steve.)

However, once again John has missed out on one of the finest Nixon appearances in comic books: that time he cut off Wonder Woman in mid-speech.

Panels from DC: The New Frontier #3 (May 2004); script, pencils, and inks by Darwyn Cooke,
colors by Dave Stewart, letters by Jared K. Fletcher

The next sixty-four pages of that comic is Wonder Woman dribbling Nixon like a basketball, so it's well worth picking up the trade.

I demand more William Howard Taft comics. I long for the day that "Giant Size Taft Annual" sits on a shelf.

Maybe Dick was just riled up by the crowd taunting him over his recently publicized gonorrhea diagnosis.
