Youth Power

"Youth Power" from Prez #1 (DC, 1973) by Joe Simon and Jerry Grandenetti
What happens when the age for being president of the USA is lowered and an 18-year-old gets elected? Only the most bizarre and wonderful things! Of course there are people who want Prez Rickard out of office, including a mobster with a smiley face for a head and a crippled vampire. I'd love to see a Prez revival (the Vertigo one-shot was okay) that really kicked modern politics in the teeth. I know how unlikely that is. I guess I'll just have to reread these old mags and imagine the vampire is the Tea Party or something.
