Obama vs. Spider-Man

Madness.  That’s really the only word I can use to describe this furor (maybe that’s too strong a word…) Marvel Comics created to kick off 2009.  Stores all over the country reported lines before their doors opened and sell-outs across the board.  I don’t remember anything like that since Superman died, which is ironic since the same day this book hit the shelves it was joined by one depicting the death of Batman (sorry Kevin).  I was happy/lucky to get the Spidey book, mostly since I regularly read Amazing Spider-Man, but the response is just further evidence that Obama is one of the most popular costumed heroes in American history.
