This is soo totally cool that I'm smiling as I write it. So right in time for the Inauguration, Marvel comics is doing a special edition of "The Amazing Spider-Man" featuring Barack Obama. According to Marvel's website, the story will find Spider Man attempting to thwart one of his oldest foes from interfering with the inauguration. In the process, Spidey meets Obama and even shares a fist-bump with him.

Previously, while on the campaign trail, Obama had mentioned that Spider-Man was one of his favorite comic book characters, so I guess it was only right for this special edition to be made. The issue will be available for $3.99 at local comic book stores. I don't know about y'all, but I'm totally going to buy this.
