Obama reads Comics

According to U.K. news source The Telegraph, U.S. President Barack Obama collects Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian comics!! How cool is that!?

He's also a 2-time Grammy winner and reads Harry Potter.

But...and I don't know how big of a comic person he actually is (or was, I'm sure he's got bigger things to worry about now than Pete and MJ's marriage)... But, how much more cred do you think comics could/might get if they were read by a freakin' President?

Probably none, since it's not as important as a lot of other things. But it's still interesting to think about...


  1. NERDS RULE THE WORLD!!! Hooray! :-D

  2. I agree...it may not be all that important in the grand scheme of things but it is intersting none-the-less to know his hobbies are very real and down to earth. maybe instead of going to his summer home for vacations and playing golf with the president of China...he will just kick back and catch up with his stack of comics.

  3. There's always a crisis or a secret invasion in comic books. By reading them, Obama was just practicing on how to save the world. If everybody read comic books, the world would be nicer place. Of course, if they read Deadpool or Punisher, we're in serious trouble.
