Many rumors abound that democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama might show up at this summer’s San Diego Comic-con. Obama, an avowed comics reader at one point in his life, may still be campaigning in July (the Democratic National Convention takes place August 25-28) and one blogger has imagined how he would fit in with the crowds.
Personally, we think he’s be there for the Jack Kirby tribute panel.

  1. Hehe.

    I hope he doesn’t show. For one thing, he’d be preaching to the converted. His energies would be better spent trying to connect with undecideds elsewhere. For another, it was enough of a hassle for me as a Canadian to run the gauntlet of people with clipboards trying to register me to vote during Comic Con 2004. I don’t want to be going through Secret Service checkpoints too.
