He’s faced them all, but Ashley J. Williams is about to face the greatest horror of his entire deadite-kickin’ career – a comic book convention!

How do things go from there when Ash and Obama are in the same place at the same time? And did we happen to mention that the Necronomicon is there doing the thing it does best – turning ordinary humans into the demon possessed undead!

This special Army of Darkness mini-series event is written by Elliott (Army of Darkness/Xena) Serrano, illustrated by Ariel Padilla and features covers by Todd (Amazing Spider-Man) Nauck and a Surprise Guest Artist!

Marvel Comics Teams Up Obama with Spider-Man!

Obama Spider-Man

He was born 33 days after me, and we both geek on superheroes.

Now he gets to pal around with Peter Parker.

Barack Obama collected Spider-Man comics as a child, so Marvel Comics wanted to give him a “shout-out back” by featuring him in a bonus story, said Joe Quesada, Marvel’s editor-in-chief.

“How great is that? The commander in chief to be is actually a nerd in chief,” Quesada said. “It was really, really cool to see that we had a geek in the White House. We’re all thrilled with that.”

Thrilled? More like ecstatic. Comic books are our modern myths, and our real-life political hero is about to become legend.

Obama has said that as a child, he collected Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian comic books. His Senate Web site used to have a photo of him posing in front of a Superman statue.

The Obama story is a bonus in Marvel Comic’s Amazing Spider-Man #583, available in comic book shops nationwide on Jan. 14 for $3.99 and is expected to sell out, with half the covers devoted to Obama.

So what do you think? Is this too much? The crass commercialization of a movement? Pop culture overload? Or…

Is this cool, or what?
