Barack Obama - Comic Fan!
I knew there was a reason I loved this guy.
As I perused Newsarama the other day, I saw this post entitled ‘5 Lessons We Hope Obama Learned from Spider-Man‘ and bookmarked the page to check it out later. Then, a friend of mine on Facebook had a link to ‘50 Things We Didn’t Know About Obama‘. Number 1? He collects Spider-Man and Conan The Barbarian comics.
Whu? Huh? How did I miss this?
Apparently, this just broke over the past days and this article points to how a certain store is now selling more and more because of this revelation. The President-Elect is not only a comics fan, but a Spider-Man fan?
I love America.

We’re pleased to announce the launch of the Near Mint Art Gallery. The Art Gallery is a chance for the hosts, fans, and friends of the program to show off their talent. We got the ball rolling with some sketches and desktop wallpapers of our own but this page is really for you. Are you an aspiring comic artist? Want to show off that sweet new Green Lantern tattoo? Got a convention sketch you’re dying to show off to the world? Now’s you chance!
Send your artwork to email@example.com and we’ll post it in the Art Gallery. Provide us with your name, hometown, age (optional) and any caption info to go along with your work. Please submit original artwork only. We reserve the right to deny or remove art submissions at any time.
