“Andrew Jackson Throws a Punch,” a Hilarious (and Historical) Comic by Andrea Tsurumi
Cartoonist/illustrator Andrea Tsurumi has a dark sense of humor. Whether it’s gross out humor or legit horror, she always delivers the unexpected. A self-described history nut, Tsurumi’s comic Andrew Jackson Throws a Punch is a half historical/half fictional take on President Andrew Jackson’s inaugural party, the first of which that was open to the public. President Jackson is known in history as being, well, a bit of a jerk. Tsurumi takes this historical fact and exaggerates it to hilarious proportions. However, we’re no historians. You’ll have to separate the reality from the fantasy on your own (or just read the last page).
