Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
A parody of a superhero comic book, based on an animated series done for Saturday Night Live. Smigel pokes fun at our four living ex-presidents, and uses all the conventions of the form: the bold lettering, the painful alliteration, the cheesy ads, and even the fine print on the copyright page. But the addition here of gratuitous x-rated material suggests the male adolescent level of humor—and it's not even on a par with the best work in that vein, say, South Park or Beavis and Butthead. Taking off from standard "origins" episode, Smigel and company establish that "the fabulous foursome for right against might" gain their super powers in a freak electrical storm, and find it a welcome change from fishing and building houses for the poor. Joining at "a place of solitude where humans never venture" (i.e., the Ford Library), they decide to display their skills at carnivals and on Fox TV. Eventually, Henry Kissinger reveals to them their true destiny: to save mankind from a grand cabal of evil that includes everyone from Castro and Quaddafi to Reptilio and Electro Brain. This coalition of aliens and communists plants spy chips in Barbara Walters's brain, and takes hostage Bill Gates ("the nebula's nerdiest native"). After smoking crack, they steal the Statue of Liberty and other national monuments. But the ex-presidents save the day. The funniest material is on the edges of the central parody: an ad to sell "magic dirt" to the elderly, a spoof editorial page, and scenes in which the presidents break out into a groovy rock band. But the graphics are substandard—a hurried conversion from their low-tech style on television, where this third-rate material was mildlyamusingat best. Stavans, Ilan LATINO U.S.A.: A Cartoon History Illus. by Lalo Alcaraz Basic (200 pp.) Sep. 1, 2000

    HILARIOUS!! VERY FUNNY!

    This book is downright funny! It has a style of humor that only Robert Smigel can create! The artwork is very well done too! From The Constitution pissing on The Declaration of Independence, to A thong headed President Clinton, this book has it all!

    I WANT MORE!!!

    I do not read many comic books, but I do watch Saturday Night Live as often as I can. For the last 5 years, I do have to say the funniest part has been the cartoon by Robert Smigel... X-Presidents (my personal favorites!), Ace and Gary, Mr. T and friends, Fun with real audio... great stuff! The cartoons always leave me wanting more, and this book does the same. When you finish laughing about the storylines, go back and read the ads, the comments, and every sentence on every page is a parody of politics, media, sea monkeys!, you name it. It's extremely fun and if they published 100 more I would buy them all and laugh for days. Well worth the time it takes to read.

    Very Funny

    I have to disagree with the review written by Kirkus (above). This whole comic book was obviously meant as a spoof of the genre and it does a great job at it, from the artwork to the ads to the storyline itself. The fact that the whole thing is a big joke in itself is what makes it so funny- Kirkus, you need to look at the big picture, not dissect it.

    Great Artwork

    This book was hysterical; but the best part was the artwork, done by the celebrated animators David Wachtenheim and Robert Marianetti who animate the SNL cartoon. It was worth every penny!
