Okay, Obama declared himself as a fan of Spider-Man. And Paul Ryan has used "comic book" in a speech as a perjorative.
But still, after the last election Obama on the cover of Amazing Spider-Man, and in a short back up strip, saw the comic sell over half a million through a variety of printings. If Mitt Romney wins the Presidential Election, could he shortly be joining Spider-Man on a variant cover of the already-destined-to-be-a-classic Amazing Spider-Man #700?
I asked Dan Slott for his thoughts. He told me;
If Romney wins, I'm moving to the UK. :-PAh, c'mon Dan, we already have a conservative government over here, I know you'd only really move so you can watch Doctor Who hours before your fellow Americans...
