Rip Hunter…Time Master (1961) 23

In the past Four Color Holidays has honored President’s Day. Today, we honor Washington’s Birthday, celebrated on the third Monday of February.

The Federal Holiday has 14 different names throughout the United States. The Founding Father is singled out in Virginia, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Louisiana and New York.

Though normally teamed with Abraham Lincoln in most states for a joint birthday party, George is paired with Thomas Jefferson in Alabama and Daisy Bates in Arkansas.

To honor Mr. Washington, we present Rip Hunter…Time Master issue 23.

Rip must exonerate the Father of our Country from aspersions cast upon his character. The hard part is debunking a letter written and signed by General Washington himself.

Rip, Bonnie Baxter, Jeff Smith and Corky Baxter find themselves hopscotching through time as they attempt to disprove the very words of George Washington and restore his good name.

Rip Hunter…Time Master began his historical journey in Showcase (1956) issue 20. He appeared three more times, issues 21, 25 and 26; before being granted his own book. The title ran 29 issues.

Rip and company were resurrected in 1990 with an eight-issue mini simply called Time Masters. He later appeared as Booster Gold’s mentor and son in the 2007 book.

Gotta love time travel.

Happy George Washington’s Birthday. Celebrate with a cherry pie and big sales designed to remember the Father of our Country.
