Every appearance of the DC Universe’s youngest Head of State leading up to Mark Russell’s critically acclaimed 2015 series—from the character’s debut in 1973 to his appearances in SANDMAN, THE DARK KNIGHT STRIKES AGAIN and more!
When a Constitutional amendment lowers the age of eligibility to run for public office, young people across the USA unite to elect the country’s first teenaged president—the aptly named Prez Rickard!
Created by Joe Simon and Jerry Grandenetti in 1973, Prez captured the spirit of his era, spreading a message of “Peace in our Time” and fighting government corruption in the form of the villainous Boss Smiley. Though his term in office was short-lived, the idea of the nineteen-year-old political whiz kid nevertheless went on to inspire such comics greats as Frank Miller, Neil Gaiman, Ed Brubaker and Grant Morrison.
