Reading Room: JOHN F KENNEDY "The Highest Office in the Land"

...John F Kennedy entered politics without any experience and won a seat in the US Congress in his very first election!
Serving first in the House, and then the Senate, he aspired to the highest position any American can hold...President!
But he faced a major hurdle...the fact he was a Roman Catholic in a country that had previously only had Protestants as Presidents, and many believed a Catholic as President would prioritize the Pope's wishes and Vatican dictates over America's needs.
Kennedy emphasized that he believed in the division of Church and State and that he would always do what was best for the USA, first and foremost...
This 1964 one-shot from Dell Comics appeared on newsstands about six months after Kennedy's death and was one of the first comics to go thru multiple printings!
Written by Paul S Newman (no, not the actor), penciled by John Tartaglione (with assists by Joe Sinnott) and inked by Dick Giordano & Frank McLaughlin.

And now a word from our sponsor (us)...
...kool kollectibles with the cover art from this HTF comic book featuring Kennedy's most famous quote; "Ask not what your country can do for you..." (You know the rest.) for this week ONLY!
