Washington, Sept 28 (ANI): US President Barack Obama and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who were featured looking friendly on previous covers of Archie Comics, have now been pitted against one another in two new covers.

Archie Comics will announce on September 28 variant covers on the Obama-Palin theme, with one cover showing Obama poised to clash with Palin in midair.

Another, which has been labelled "The Fight for America!" shows Obama and Palin sporting boxing gloves, and prepping to spar with one other.

Obama is dubbed "The Chicago Kid" while Palin gets named "The Thrilla from Wasilla".

Archie Comics co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the company had received so much positive feedback on the first Obama/Palin cover that they decided to keep going on.

"We sat around and talked and said, 'Holy toledo!' This is something that we should take a look at and bring the president back on the cover for," the Politico quoted him as saying.

He said he just reached out to both the Palin and Obama camps.

"I'm sure that we're going to hear from them," he said.

"At the end of the day, President Obama and Sarah Palin completely come from opposite sides, but they both want the same thing: The best interests of the United States.

"And we figured Riverdale High School was a place they can unite," he stated. (ANI)
