The Hypo is a completely original account of a man driven by an irrepressible desire to pull himself up by his bootstraps, overcome depression and become the person he strives to be. All the while unknowingly laying the foundation of character he would use as one of America's greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln. Blammo creator Van Sciver examines Lincoln's "lost years" during his time on the Illinois legislature.
