Straight from Barack Obama's home city, Devil's Due announces three Obama inspired items available this June.

DRAFTED: 100 DAYS: Devil's Due's original Sci-Fi hit returns with this double-sized one-shot featuring the President who could have been.  Mark Powers offers a poignant look at a man the world never got to see achieve his true greatness when a race from beyond the stars drafted our planet into intergalactic war.  See how he struggles, just as every other man, woman and child on Earth does in this truly inspiring story.  As can be expected from Powers, there's one other difference about our hero in this story in that due to an injury... he is MUTE.

1-Shot 48 Page Special
 
BARACK THE BARBARIAN: QUEST FOR THE TREASURE OF STIMULI: Devil's Due and 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?

Ongoing Series.

"Yup, we did it, we made Obama books!" states DDP President Josh Blaylock, "But I guarantee you these are unlike ANY others out there."

Look for these items shipping in early June, and keep an eye out for exclusive variant covers available at this year's San Diego Comic-Con!

Is this supposed to be funny?
I thought April Fool's Day jokes were supposed to be funny. And looking at my calendar it's March 31st. So not only did someone actually take the time to think up this they are a day early.
