Sorry to have kept all y'all waiting.

4 pages from the newest issue of Youngblood, Rob's long awaited return to writing and pencilling his baby. If you're an Obamaniac (aren't we all?), you should know these are the *only* Liefeld pages featuring O in this issue.

There is an Obama cover as this is a flip book with a short supplemental tale with an Obama cameo (pencilled by Liefeld protege Marat Mychaels) but this's a new book so four scans allowed only.

Rob himself says:

"A couple things i wanted to add about Youngblood #9....

First, I'm extremely pleased with the story...it gets the series back on track. I'm more pleased with the story and the pace than anything else.

My biggest thrill is that Kirkman pulled me aside to tell me how much he enjoyed it! He even asked Marat later on in the weekend if I really wrote it myself or if it was a "ghost!"

...does Obama even know how to use a gun?

That's like the first thing presidents learn when they're in office. That and the "Secret Handshake". How do you think our beloved President James Marshall could have defeated all those terrorists? :D

He learned that and many, many more harsh lessons of life on the mean streets of Hyde Park (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyde_Park_Chicago).

Well, in fairness, he used to spend alot of time community organizing at Altgeld Gardens (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Altgeld_Gardens,_Chicago) (which isn't really that violent as far as Chicago housing projects go) and South Chicago (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Chicago,_Chicago) (where violent crime rates can go from moderate to high within a space of few blocks, which is why walking though it is a very delicate game of avoid-a-street).

If it were President Andrew Jackson, the terrorist guy would have had two rounds in his skull before he could finish his sentence and there would have been a whiskey keg party at the WH afterwards.

Seriously, why do none of the badass presidents ever wind up in comics? We've had so many of them!

Show me one superhero who has gotten shot in the chest, checked himself, decided it wasn't serious, and proceeded to give an hour long speech with blood spreading across his chest.

NONE, and let me tell you why. If Teddy found out someone stole his schtick, he'd rise from the dead and fuck them up

The guy who wrote "Pride And Prejudice And Zombies" (Seth Grahame-Smith) is writing "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer". Finally, the truth can be told! :D

There was a one shot called Tales from the Bully Pulpit where Teddy Roosevelt and the ghost of Thomas Edison go fight Nazis on Mars. It features Lincoln beating the crap out of Hitler

This really makes me wish the artist hadn't abandoned Anne Frank Conquers the Moon Nazis. It was such an awesome concept.
