Today the JFK Library unveiled a new display of original Superman artwork featuring President Kennedy. “Superman’s Mission for President Kennedy,” drawn by legendary comic book artist Al Plastino, was written in collaboration with the Kennedy White House in an effort to promote the President’s initiative encouraging physical fitness. The ten original storyboards are on display for the first time through May 31, 2014. Learn more here: http://bit.ly/1dg3JDM
Thirty four more days until the Presidential election. In the coming weeks, the Presidential Libraries will be featuring memorabilia, photos, and documents from campaigns of the past century.
Up first, a campaign comic book created for the 1952 election. A Republican senatorial campaign in Rhode Island promoted the GOP slate by making the most of Dwight Eisenhower’s heroic image as “Leader, Statesman, Administrator, Presidential Candidate.”
