Here’s my advice:

Don’t buy it.

Ignore it. Ignore the hype. Ignore the fact that a President is on a cover (ZOMG, we’ve NEVER seen THAT before!). Ignore the fact that it’s Spider-Man meeting the new President.

It’s a marketing gimmick. That’s all. And so far it’s worked perfectly.

The fact of the matter is that this is nothing new. This is not some hot item that’ll be worth thousands of dollars in a few years. This thing is entering it’s THIRD PRINTING already. No one wants to spend millions of dollars on an item that isn’t rare.

And you could have Jesus appear in the comic for all I care saying how much he loves Spider-Man, it WON’T undue him making a literal deal with the devil himself.

So don’t buy it. Don’t try to recreate the Superman #75 debacle from the early 90s. Don’t support a book whose main protagonist supports solving your problems by negotiating with evil.

Just don’t.

EDIT: Because of a continual attempt at spamming, I’m closing comments on this one.
