Your friendly, neighborhood president-elect

You may have read about the Spider-Man comic book featuring Barack Obama that's driving speculators to comic shops nationwide.

The comic was so popular that Merced's Cop-A-Comic wasn't able to get the first printing and has had to turn away potential buyers hoping to snag the collector's item. Well fear not, says Cop-A-Comic's Mike Smid. The second printing will be available in just a few weeks.  (Marvel.com says it will be on sale on Jan. 28.)

"The way the ordering went, there was no opportunity to get the first print before they were sold out," he explained. "We'll have a limited number of second prints. By the time most people get here, we'll be selling the third print."

It's already selling for $119.99 on eBay.

It has a cover price of $3.99.
