Roosevelt Reading Room LIFE STORIES OF AMERICAN PRESIDENTS "Theodore Roosevelt"

With Ken Burns' The Roosevelts running on PBS...
...we thought we'd show how educational comics portrayed them, beginning with the Rough Rider!
This never-reprinted tale from Dell's Life Stories of American Presidents (1957) features the superb artwork of John Buscema.
Edited (and possibly written) by Helen Meyer.
If you think Buscema did a great job with the dynamic Teddy, wait until tomorrow, when he tackles the wheelchair-bound FDR in a masterful bit of effective storytelling!
