The end of the World as we know it

No, really, this time I mean it. I know that there have been touting the end of days pretty much since I began this blog, but truly, I totally mean it this time.

I was just forwarded a release from a friend of mine, and it, well...

Sorry, I can’t, I just can’t.. Here, read it for yourselves...

Forget Arnold Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian and meet Barack the Barbarian in his latest fictional role.

The U.S President is featured in yet another series of new comic books which will be published in June.

In one called Barack the Barbarian: Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli the Democrat leader is pictured as the muscle-bound, loincloth-wearing President of ‘Kickassistan’.


Yeah, you all read that right, but unfortunately that isn’t all of it, and it does get worse...

In another called The Righteous Retribution of Barack the Barbarian, he is pictured in a fight to the death with a screeching enchantress.

In the Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli, he takes on his Nemesis, former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who sports a cape made from wolf skin and her trademark glasses - and very little else.

Chicago-based comics publisher Devil's Due revealed its titles will involve Obama-related storylines.

It released promotional images for the comics featuring the US President and a unique take on Palin.


And of course there is art (Lord is there art).





Please, for the love of God, would someone shoot me now.

The rest of the story can be found here.

Just when you forgot Solson Publishing's "Reagan's Raiders" or Revolutionary Comics' "Tipper Gore Comics And Stories"...

Obama is good for comics right now, at least until he hits the saturation point. Which should be riiight about the time these comics ship.

Actually DJ, I cited the Regan Raiders reference to another friend of mine in regards to these comics. I recall them quite well (although I don’ so much recall the Tipper Gore comics.
