WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A second edition of Marvel's Spiderman comic with President Barack Obama on the cover hit store shelves Wednesday.

Employees at Past, Present, Future Comics in West Palm Beach say the first edition sold out at their store in just hours last week.  They are expecting similar demand for the 100 copies they ordered this time around.

The comics retail for just a few dollars, but have sold for hundreds of dollars on the Web.

Comic collectors and non-collectors are excited for the new edition. Collector Lex Barker says, "If you can find one it's collectible, historic and fun."

A third edition is expected to be out Wednesday of next week.
