Image Comics has provided Newsarama with three preview pages from the six-page story written and drawn by Rob Liefeld. The story centers on Obama announcing his first major superhero initiative. As Liefeld pointed out in the press release, Image’s superhero titles have a long history of dabnbling in real-world politics, from Dan Quayle in WILDCats to George H.W. Bush in Youngblood and Bill Clinton in Supreme.
