First Barack Obama Comics Appearance Gets Reprinted For Charity


Licensable Bear TM #4, written by Nat Gertler from About Comics, is well known for featuring the first comic book appearance of Barack Obama, when he was but a long-odds candidate for the Democrat nominations.

In order to benefit HERO, the charity that raises money for comic book creators in difficult circumstances, About Comics has printed a 60 copy second print run, including 50 numbered copies and 10 artist proof copies for the creators, with the cover displayed here.

The numbered copies are being sold on eBay from around $25 each.
