Can you say "enough already"?

As the mainstream media has been reporting, Barack Obama has met Spider-Man in a sell-out comic book.

But wait! That was just the start.

Image Comics -- the number 3 company after industry leaders Marvel and DC -- has announced that the new prez will appear in the February issue of Youngblood # 8. The 6 page story, drawn by veteran artist Rob Liefeld, will feature Obama's first superhero-initiative as he picks the next group of heroes to serve on the title team. This will be a prelude to # 9 in which the White House must be defended by the newbies.

"With Youngblood having featured George H.W. Bush in its past and Bill Clinton in Supreme, Image has a long history of involving presidential figures," Liefeld told Comic Book Resources.
