‘Archie’ Gets Political With Obama and Palin
Posted on Sep 28, 2010
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
On the first cover we peeked, the two pols are featured looking downright friendly: Obama and Palin share a milkshake, prompting Archie to declare, “Wow, I guess anything’s possible!” Inside, Obama and Palin get involved with Riverdale High’s student government election, in which Archie is running against Reggie.
But, lest you think the comic book is all mush, POLITICO has learned that the company is set to announce two covers on a less bi-partisan theme: Palin and Obama fighting it out.
