President Obama has already made a cameo on the colorful pages of “Spider-Man,” and he’s getting the comic-book treatment once again with not one, but two special editions of “Archie,” and this time, he’ll share the covers with a certain “Thrilla from Wasilla.”  —KA

Insanity rules, and now in the comic book domain.  And here I thought

Yeowie Kazowie!!!! And kapow!
