Barack the Barbarian

Chicago-based Devil's Due Publishing is receiving lots of attention for its new comic book mini-series Barack the Barbarian: Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli. Comicbook.com calls issue #1 is "a good piece of fun," and The Examiner says it's a "hilarious blend of political satire and Sword and Sorcery."

If for no other reason, you've got to buy it for the alternate cover with this illustration of Sarah Palin.
