Obama is a Guardian of the Globe

Spawn, Invincible, Rick Grimes of WALKING DEAD and… President Barack Obama?!?!

I suppose I really shouldn’t be surprised that he’s the latest announced member of Image’s possibly-for-real, surely-in-jest GUARDIANS OF THE GLOBE team-up title. The guy’s shown up in so many comics over the past year, I’ve lost track. Actually, this reminds me of when I was walking around Venice Beach a few months ago. Looking past all the crazy people and at the cheap vendors, I figured that if the president got a nickel - - just a nickel - - for every time his likeness was used on a t-shirt, he could  probably  be “living in two houses” too. Chalk comics appearances up to that, and he could probably be living in three.

Alright, let’s keep politics out of any talkback discussion today. Instead, focus the discussion strictly on Obama’s stars 'n stripes belt buckle. Stylish accessory? Or grievous fashion faux pas?

All those pundits were giving him a hard time for not wearing a flag on his lapel; they just needed to look a bit lower. ;)

Image's teasers are too fun. I'm now totally buying Guardians of the Globe. They earned it.

Ok the first 2 were funny, the 3rd was okay, but this is now a little OVERKILL even for Image's part.  
Who will be the 5th member come tomorrow?  A regular employee of Image?  My bet is on Erik Larsen.

Funny as hell, but I can't help but feel incredibly disappointed that they're not actually making a Guardians of the Globe book.

I assume these are just jokes and a real Guardians of the Globe book will be launched with new characters and maybe invincible
