Barack Panther from Brian Denham in Antarctic Press June 2018 Solicits

There’s no word what Barack Obama thought of the Black Panther movie. Though as a Marvel geek of old, odds are good. Michelle certainly had good words.

But if you are missing his Presidential parlay, this June may bring you partial recompense. With a new comic book from Brian Denham recreating Obama as a familiar superhero… the Barack Panther… and up against a certain Donald Trump.

Just when you thought it was safe to go into the desert…a pack of the most voracious of junk-traders strikes! They’re in a 100-footer…120, all 50 tons of it. Be dressed for the occasion.

Imperial Stormtroopers may be precise, but to handle these sand sharks, they’re going to need a bigger blaster…and a snazzy shirt like this.
When you’re dressed to kill in a shirt like this, there’s no need for hokey religions. Take aim with that blaster at your side and tell these sharp-toothed little scavengers, “Smile, you son of a bantha.”
You’ve located the remains of the droids. You know this was no landspeeder accident. But you’ve got the right equipment, including this shirt, so go out and get a fair trade. Remember, if you’re looking for a Jawa, you’re only gonna find him on sand.
What you are dealing with here is a perfect engine, a haggling machine. It’s really a miracle of economics. All this machine does is shoot and eat and capture little droids, and that’s all.
Don’t let any brown-robed, rodent-like swindler palm off a droid with a bad motivator on you. They may not look that threatening, but when they think they smell an easy mark, it’s like blood in the water.
