NB of the Week

I gots two separate ones, for two separate reasons so here they are:

Moment of the Week - Ultimate Spider-Man #151
With all the hoopla that is surrounding Peter and May's house (they have living with them Johnny Storm and Bobby Drake since both the FF and the X-Men are disbanded and Gwen Stacey since her father died and that's while he was trying to juggle her and MJ and being Spider-Man....) Gwen actually bailed last issue and hasn't been seen since. Aunt May, loving and missing a girl who she has no idea where she is, drastically leaves her phone messages begging for her to come back. Which she surprisingly does. Telling May she went looking for her mother and finding out that she doesn't want her around any more, May responds with, "Well, then... she's a bitch."
Hells yeah Aunt May! You tell her how it is!

Book of the Week: Nemesis #4
After the huge success of Kick-Ass, Mark Millar and Marvel started Nemesis, a story they described has "Batman if he were Joker". Nemesis is a bad mother-villain who has a hate-on for everybody in a position of power. Dude just kills people. Kidnaps the president. Reveals extremely personal stuff of his security team's personal life to the media (gay son, pregnant under-aged daughter, the usual). Dude is just vicious. Issue four is the end of the first story and it's pretty awesome. I really want to get more into how it ends, but a movie is in the works and Tony Scott is set to direct and I would hate to ruin the surprise for whenever it actually comes out but it's good. Trust me.


  1. I can't wait until Peter finds her "stash" and she has to explain it to him.
