The Adventures of Barack Obama

In America, Barack Obama’s battling the recession, but in Kickassistan, "Barack the Barbarian" is battling a Sarah Palin cartoon, clad only, of course, in her trademark glasses and wolf fur. This cartoon strip is just one of two new cartoons about Barack Obama due out this June. In addition to Barack The Barbarian: The Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli, there’s Drafted: One Hundred Days, which features an Obama character who’s robbed of his greatest strength: speech. Reads the summary of Barbarian: “Join Barack, Sorceress Hilaria, her demi-god trickster husband Biil, Overlord Boosh and Chainknee of the Elephant Kingdom. Who can the lone barbarian trust, if anyone?" You’ll have to wait until next week’s installment to find out.
