Why not celebrate the esteemed leaders of our nation by reading Scott McCloud’s somewhat forgotten New Adventures of Abraham Lincoln?  The book has often been maligned as McCloud’s worst book ever, but even if that’s true, it’s still a Scott McCloud book.  Granted, the art is pretty rough — McCloud was just beginning to experiment with a purely digital art process — but the book still manages to explore a number of ideas about icons, history, and heroes. Well worth tracking down!
