obamaspidermansmall-010809Marvel Comics has announced that issue No. 583 of The Amazing Spider-Man will hit stands on January 14th with two different covers, one of which will be a special Inauguration Day edition that features President-elect Barack Obama alongside Spider-Man.

Marvel says that the President-elect was a natural fit to be featured in the comic, given his history with the medium:

“When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics’ Marvel Universe,” says Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.  “Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set in the real world.  A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of ‘Amazing Spider-Man.’”
