Below is a bizarre 1966 pro-LBJ comic book that glamorizes his concept of the "great society". Portraying the president as "Super-LBJ," a superhero who fights off Khrushchev, the KKK and the political establishment, it appears to be a rip-off of Superman, Batman and other popular comic characters of the era. The story also includes Robert and Teddy Kennedy, Fidel Castro, Hubert Humphrey, Ladybird Johnson, Richard Nixon and several other political icons of the 1960's.
The question is: why? Not only is this cheesy piece of political history embarrassing, but who was it supposed to appeal to? Teenagers don't vote. And if anyone can tell me why RFK is dressed up as what appears to be a teddy-bear, please let me know.
