Marvel celebrates Obama with Spider-Man Inauguration issue


Like Ben & Jerry’s, Marvel Comics is celebrating Barack Obama’s January 20, 2009 Inauguration by featuring the President-elect in its upcoming issue of Spider-Man.

“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,” says Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.

Available on Jan. 14, 2009, the story will be published in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #583.  Two covers will be printed – a regular, and a “special variant” (above) featuring Spider-Man and Obama.

Let the celebrations continue!
