Archie Comics to feature Obama-Palin. Again.

Apparently the earlier cover featuring Obama and Palin was so good they felt they needed to do it again.

Archie Comics will announce on Tuesday variant covers on the Obama-Palin theme, with one cover showing Obama poised to clash with Palin in midair, while another ? labeled “The Fight for America!” ? depicting Obama and Palin sporting boxing gloves, prepped to spar with one other. Obama is dubbed “The Chicago Kid” while Palin gets named “The Thrilla from Wasilla.”

Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater told POLITICO that the company had received so much positive feedback on the first Obama/Palin cover (which made the rounds last week) they decided, why ruin a good thing?

That first one is a parody of the Superman vs Spider-man comic from the 70’s.

Archie Comics has resorted to cheap stunts in order to get attention, then plays it off into single-issue sales that net non-comic buyers. While it certainly looks good on the bottom line, it certainly cheapens the value of the property.

If it sells, good for them!

Maybe Palin is the gay character being introduced in Archie. That sounds about right.
