Spiderman has friends in high places...
After the British Telegraph printed a list of 50 facts you may not know about Barack Obama -- which included the tidbit that he collects Spiderman and Conan the Barbarian comic books -- the folks at Marvel Comics were prompted to act.
"When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics' Marvel Universe," said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man."
And next week, a short comic adventure featuring both icons will hit comic book stands.
I can't wait for the Captain Canuck comic with Stephan Harper in it.....HAHAHAH!!!
