Spidey-Obama Comic Flying Off Shelves

asm583_obamavariant.thumbnail1.jpgRemember that Spider-Man/Obama comic we told you about yesterday? Well apparently it’s quite popular, at least in one location in Manhattan:

As of 11:30 this morning, Midtown Comics’ 40th street store was getting an average of 1 call every 4 minutes about the Obama Spider-Man issue. Most requests asked for multiple-copy reservations (reply: sorry, only one per customer), and at least one caller was willing to pay $20 a copy to reserve 40 copies of the issue.
