Since Barack Obama is to 2009 comics what foil variants were to 1993 comics and black and white parodies were to 1988 comics, it is natural that more and more companies should jump on the bandwagon, like Devil’s Due with Barack the Barbarian, an ongoing parody written by Larry Hama. The artist is not named.
BARACK THE BARBARIAN: QUEST FOR THE TREASURE OF STIMULI
Larry Hama (G.I. Joe, Wolverine) take political satire to a whole new level. Hama, a surprise hire to some, but not to those who truly know his tastes, will take a look at the current state of politics both past and present and isn’t afraid to point fun at Washinton’s sacred cows. In the distant future the story of Barack Obama has become a little… distorted. According to THE MADDOWIAN CHRONICLES he was the one destined to save the great republic of America and dethrone the overpaid despots of the time. 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?
Although Dick Cheney makes a great Thulsa Doom, we can only quote the Geico gecko…”Oh, dear.”
