What happens when two of the most polarizing figures in modern American politics cross paths in Riverdale High? That’s right – President Barack Obama and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin make a campaign pit stop in one of America’s most visible and vibrant locales: Riverdale, USA!
When Archie and Reggie’s dueling student government campaigns spiral out of control, their hijinks and machinations ensnare the two visiting politicos which leads to a heavy dose of high school hilarity.
Archie: Obama & Palin in Riverdale is a large-format volume best suited to present this larger-than-life adventure from the creative minds of writer/educator Alex Simmons and longtime artist Dan Parent. The iconic cover says it all – Obama and Palin sharing a milkshake. As Archie himself says, “Anything’s possible in Riverdale!”
This story has already garnered extensive media attention and awareness and makes for a light-hearted, positive tale with a message of cooperation, civility and friendship. A must-have for the holidays.
