From the day of his birth, Abraham Lincoln's life was a mixture of triumph and tragedy.
Now a young man in his mid-20s, he goes off to seek employment working on the Mississippi River...
We'll continue with Lincoln's political campaign...
This section of Dell's never-reprinted one-shot Abraham Lincoln: Life Story (1958) was written by Gaylord DuBois, and illustrated by Alberto Giolitti, known to American comics readers as the primary illustrator of the Gold Key Star Trek comic book of the 1960s-70s.
Note: the story is over 80 pages, so it's going to run through Friday.
But it's a story worth telling, especially with a new Steven Spielberg-directed feature film starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Honest Abe currently out in limited run, so I'm going ahead and I hope you'll join me.
