First Look: Gun-Toting Obama on ECCC Youngblood #8 Variant

First Look: Gun-Toting Obama

ECCC Exclusive Youngblood #8 cover

If we didn't know any better, we'd think that Savage Dragon creator Erik Larsen and Rob Liefeld are having a bit of a contest to see who can cast President Obama as a comic book superhero.

For WonderCon, Larsen released the convention exclusive "Obama vs. Osama" variant cover for Savage Dragon #145 which showed President Barack Obama punching Osama Bin Laden in an homage to Golden Age World War II covers. And for the upcoming Emerald City ComiCon, Liefeld is casting Obama as a gun-toting pal of Youngblood's Chapel on a convention exclusive cover to Youngblood #8. The issue, which is already out in stores, features the President in a back-up story, as he named the members of the new Youngblood team.

And yes, with Obama standing 6' 1/2", this makes Chapel seven feet and change tall.

At this point, there are no more Obama covers on the horizon.
