    1. Surprisingly enjoyable (if slightly goofy!) read.It's also an interesting comparison between these stories, and the recent, more "arc-y" volume of Prez, Vol. 1: Corndog in Chief.)

    2. Last year, DC published Prez, Vol. 1: Corndog in Chief to a good bit of acclaim. A rather biting political satire, it earned a Best Comic Book award from the Reubens, and deservedly so. Around the time the book was published, DC announced plans to collect the original Prez series from the early 1970s, along with his later appearances in Supergirl, Sandman, and a Vertigo one-shot. The 70s Prez was created by Joe Simon and Jerry Grandenetti. Simon, of course, was the longtime creative partner with [...]

    3. This embodies all the best and not so good traits of 1970's comics. This is a story that hasn't happened, but it could. The youth vote has just been given to 18-year-olds, the Constitution is amended so teenage Prez Rickard can be elected President. It tries to break out of the box of strictly superhero fare, while it struggles to come to grips with the changing times. Great, that we have a Teenage President; couldn't be worse than the Victorian-minded dinkoffs we have to deal with now. In fact [...]

    4. Interesting but very disjointed read. The original Prez series was fascinating but some follow ups didn't quite keep my interest.

    5. Huh. I didn't know what I was reading -- but these are the original series . or one off collections. I don't have the words. Much of it is very earnest, but then it was from the 70's so that makes sense. I enjoined the Pied Piper one -- and then the Neil Gaiman Sandman one was fantastic. And Smells like teen president. The graphics vary quite a bit . I like the more modern ones ,but that's me. It's a good read, but I think it might be good as part of a history study of comics
