This week we start off our little tribute the blockbuster Avengers movie by reading “Marvel Knights: Black Widow” by Devin Grayson and Greg Rucka. What starts out as a Russian superintelligence agency’s attempt to replace Natasha Romanoff turns into a mind rape re-enactment of Nicholas Cage’s FACE/OFF. Yeah, it gets weird.

This week we go over one of the true classics of the comic book genre: “The Death of Gwen Stacy.” Written by Gerry Conway and drawn by Gil Kane, this comic contains a fair handful of the most memorable, heart-rending moments in the history of Spiderman, or any character for that matter. We mull over the book’s confrontations with drugs and race as well as Spiderman’s quick descension into blind rage and emptiness.
