JFK As Superman At JFK Library
The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is displaying, for the first time, comic artwork of the former president posing as Superman.
The original 10 hand-drawn story boards were donated by the creator and legendary comic book artist Al Plastino decades ago, but fell into the hands of a private owner.
Plastino discovered his black-and-white drawings at the New York Comic Con event in October and notified the library in Boston.
Comic book publisher DC Entertainment bought the artwork and donated it to the library in December.
The 1964 story called, “Superman’s Mission for President Kennedy” was part of a White House initiative to promote the President’s national physical fitness program.
Plastino drew Superman for about 20 years. he died in November at the age of 91.
