***Breaking News: New York Times reports on lines for AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #583 featuring the Spidey/Obama Team-Up and ABC's Nightline features Spidey/Obama***
It's a Brand New Day for the United States of America and Spider-Man's along for the ride!
To celebrate the upcoming inauguration of Barack Obama, Marvel is proud to present an all-new story teaming up one of the world's most recognizable political figures with the world's greatest super hero as President Obama joins Spider-Man in "Spidey Meets the President!"
Written by Zeb Wells with art by Todd Nauck and Frank D'Armata, the story takes place in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day and finds one
of Spider-Man's oldest foes attempting to thwart the swearing in ceremony of the 44th President of the United States.
Fans can read it in its entirety in Marvel Comics' AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #583, available in comic book shops nationwide. Look for the special variant cover by artist Phil Jimenez featuring the President and Spider-Man!
"When we heard that [President] Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics' Marvel Universe," says Marvel's Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set
in the real world. A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man."
For fans of Spider-Man and those wanting to own a part of this historic moment in American history, visit your local comic book retailer now to purchase the issue.
