Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Geary explores the first assassination of one of our presidents in the hands of an obsessive-compulsive stalker, a deluded loser who thought his action would bring him national glory. Once again, beyond a mere presentation of facts, the author surreptitiously peels for us a bit of our national psyche.

Review:

"In this first-rate nonfiction comics work, Geary examines the assassination of our 20th president, James Garfield, murdered barely six months into his presidency by Charles Guiteau, a failed lawyer and demented evangelist." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Geary explores the first assassination of one of our presidents in the hands of an obsessive-compulsive stalker.

About the Author

Rick Geary was born in 1946 in Kansas City and grew up in Wichita. After getting a degree in art and film, the West beckoned. San Diego became his new home in 1975. Rick established himself through Heavy Metal, Epic, the Copley News Service, and especially National Lampoon where he cartooned the stranger aspects of The Great American Way of life with his inimitable straight-faced sense of the absurd. This has been collected in his book Housebound with Rick Geary. He has also done a lot of whimsical comics for Dark Horse and their magazine Dark Horse Presents. He lived in New York City for 4 years where he provided illustrations for The New York Times but sunny San Diego proved too hard to stay away from. His website can be found at www.rickgeary.com.
