J. Edgar Hoover

A Graphic Biography: A True History of Violence, Crimefighting, Politics and Power

Rick Geary   2008   112p   5 x 8

In the hands of gifted cartoonist Rick Geary, J. Edgar Hoover’s life becomes a timely and pointed guide to eight presidents–from Calvin Coolidge to Richard Nixon–and everything from Prohibition to cold war espionage. From a nascent FBI’s headline-grabbing tracking down of Dillinger and Machine Gun Kelly in the 1930s to Hoover’s increasingly paranoid post-WWII authorizing of wiretaps, blackmail, and circumvention of Supreme Court decisions, J. Edgar Hoover: A Graphic Biography provides a special window into the life of an outsized American and a bird’seye view on the twentieth century.
