Abe Lincoln on Acid

Brian Anthony and Bill Walker. Walker/Anthony, $17.95 trade paper (334p) ISBN 978-0-9897457-7-2
In the joyful sequel to Abe Lincoln: Public Enemy No. 1, Anthony and Walker continue their goofy, endearing adventures of an immortal ex-president battling the evil of Hoover’s henchmen during the Summer of Love. This charming yarn speeds along at a breakneck pace but takes time to linger on pleasant nostalgia trips, as Lincoln reprises his penchant for bank heists and daring escapes, expanding his interests to psychedelic experiences. With the gentle, constant support of folk singer John Voci, Lincoln crosses the country twice in search of himself, like everyone else in the psychedelic era. Along the way he inspires radical youths, gives support to a noble minister, and explores his own legacy. The authors’ irreverence is enhanced by an obvious affection for the material. Though the setting and situations are absurd, the perils contrived, and the outcome preordained, the journey is made worth the trouble by the protagonist’s relentless optimism coupled with steely pragmatism. Readers will delight in this fun, frivolous indulgence. (BookLife)
