I suppose I really shouldn’t be surprised that he’s the latest announced member of Image’s possibly-for-real, surely-in-jest GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE team-up title. The guy’s shown up in so many comics over the past year, I’ve lost track. Actually, this reminds me of when I was walking around Venice Beach a few months ago. Looking past all the crazy people and at the cheap vendors, I figured that if the president got a nickel - - just a nickel - - for every time his likeness was used on a t-shirt, he could probably be “living in two houses” too. Chalk comics appearances up to that, and he could probably be living in three.
Alright, let’s keep politics out of any talkback discussion today. Instead, focus the discussion strictly on Obama’s stars 'n stripes belt buckle. Stylish accessory? Or grievous fashion faux pas?
