Coulter Makes Cover of “Barack the Barbarian”

A Chicago publisher, Devils Due, is releasing a politically-themed swords and sorcercy comic book, "Barack the Barbarian," by Larry Hama, Chris Schons, and Joel Humberto Herrera. The buffed Obama character fights a succession of villains based on real-life political adversaries such as Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney. Issue 2 (available here) finds Barack battling a "Screeching Enchantress" who's clearly intended to be Ann Coulter. According to the Devils Due website,

"Barack begins his assault on the Elephant Tower by entering the dreaded Labyrinth of Right Turns guarded by the Screeching Enchantress and her many-headed dogs. Meanwhile his other enemies plot and scheme and work their dire magicks."
