Obama/Spidey Comic Forces Midtown Store to Hire Bouncer

asm583_obamavariant.thumbnail01.14.09.jpgWe’ve been bringing you news of the Spiderman/Barack Obama comic for a week now and our tipster just wrote in with another update:

I just went down to Midtown for my weekly comics fix, and (I kid you not) there is a nightclub-like bouncer at the door and block-long line of (mostly) guys waiting to get inside that stretches from 40th and 7th to 40th and 8th. Evidently the store is only letting so many people in at once, even if you’re not buying the Obama issue. “I recommend coming back this afternoon,” said the bouncer at the door. Why this afternoon? My guess: because by then, the Obama issue will be totally sold out.

The President-elect is saving more than Time.
