What does the Virginia Commonwealth Library celebrate as its 2 millionth comic acquisition?

According to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, it's the Spider-Man comic with Obama in it:
Virginia Commonwealth University's library has acquired its 2 millionth volume: a Spider-Man comic featuring President Barack Obama.

A public event celebrating the milestone will be held at 2 p.m. Friday on the first floor of the James Branch Cabell Library, 901 Park Ave.

Marvel Comics' "Amazing Spider-Man, #583," released in recognition of Obama's inauguration, was added to VCU's Comic Arts Collection, which includes more than 125,000 items.
Oh, come on now. This is what they need to celebrate, even after his whole health care debacle? There were so many other, better comics that could've made the list, and they had to make it that tedious tripe? Please. This shows how some libraries are really scraping bottom in what they seek to stock their shelves.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
