Graphic Biography J. Edgar Hoover HC (2008 HILL AND WANG) comic books 2008
1st printing. Story and art by Rick Geary. In the hands of gifted cartoonist Rick Geary, J. Edgar Hoover's life becomes a timely and pointed guide to eight presidents - from Calvin Coolidge to Richard Nixon - and everything from Prohibition to Cold War espionage. From a nascent FBI's headline-grabbing hunt for John of Dillinger and Machine Gun Kelly in the 1930s to Hoover's increasingly paranoid post-WWII authorization of illegal wiretaps, blackmail, and circumvention of Supreme Court decisions, J. Edgar Hoover: A Graphic Biography provides a special window into the life of an outsized American and a bird's eye view on twentieth century American history. Hardcover, 5 1/2-in. x 8 1/2-in., 108 pages, B&W. Cover price $16.95.
