Presidential Inauguration

Since the inauguration is coming up fast, I thought that in the spirit of that, I'd show a couple of Ben Templesmith's own Presidents. Being released two weeks from today, BEN TEMPLESMITH'S PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES is an oversize (8-1/2" x 11") book of portraits of all 44 POTUSes, and the finished spreads will include facts and information about each guy, too, which suddenly makes this a valuable text for students and biographers as well as comics fans and political junkies. All played straight, too, as you can see in these images of Abraham Lincoln and Grover Cleveland.

I can safely say I never thought I'd be interested in a portrait/bio book of the US presidents. Then again, I never thought Ben Templesmith would be turning said presidents into BAMFs. Might have to buy this.

I fixed the info below a few days ago--COUNTDOWN #1 is out on Jan. 21, so a week from today.
