Obama-Spidey Comic Heads to Third Printing

011509_spiderman_obama-tm.jpgThis President-elect Barack Obama-Spiderman comic book thing is getting out of control. First, a midtown store hires a bouncer to keep the masses at bay and now its going back for a third printing.

“To meet the unprecedented demand, Marvel is going back to press with Amazing Spider-Man #583 Third Printing Obama Variant,” the comany announced in a press release, less than 24 hours after the book started selling.

Those lucky enough to get first editions could make a killing. They are going for almost $100 on eBay.)
